Disney+ adds food contest to the mix

US streamer Disney+ has commissioned a competition series that challenges participants to create Disney-inspired works of art made out of food.

Foodtastic started production this week and is set to premiere on the streaming service later this year, produced by Endemol Shine North America.

Actress, singer/songwriter and television personality Keke Palmer (The Proud Family: Louder & Prouder) will host and executive produce the 11-episode unscripted series.

In each self-contained episode, three teams of food artists will create food sculptures based on Disney characters and be judged on their design, technical skills and narrative, not by taste.

NYC’s City Cakes founder Chef Benny Rivera and Flour Shop founder Amirah Kassem will serve as judges.

Unused food from each competition will be donated to local food banks, Disney+ said.

In addition to Palmer, Josh Silberman, Sarah Happel Jackson and Endemol Shine North America’s Sharon Levy, DJ Nurre and Michael Heyerman are executive producers.
