Emeril Lagasse Cooks Up New Talkshow With Food, Music & Celebrities

Emeril Lagasse is trying his hand at the talk show format as he launches a new weekly series that will combine food, music and celebrities.

"'The Emeril Lagasse Show' will feature one of America's most popular chefs as he has never been seen before," says ION Television in a statement. "Each week, Emeril will welcome celebrity guests, musicians and entertainers to break news and break bread as Emeril shares his world, his friends and his passions."

The hour-long show will be taped before a live audience and also feature a house band that will play live music and interact with Emeril.

Karen Katz and After Five Productions, which executive produced Lagasse's long-running Food Network series, 'Emeril Live', will executive produce the new show.

With the rights to his franchise of books and television shows purchased by Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Inc. in 2008, the group will share production oversight of the new show with ION.

In the meantime, Lagasse will continue to host 'Emeril Green', a Planet Green cable series in which he helps novice cooks prepare wholesome meals.

'The Emeril Lagasse Show' will air Sunday nights at 8 PM beginning March 28th.
