Apple TV+ have announced the series order for ‘Omnivore,’ a new one-hour docuseries from Cary Joji Fukunaga and globally acclaimed chef René Redzepi, set to explore humanity and the planet through eight defining ingredients.
Narrated by Redzepi, the upcoming series will look at the world through the lens of food and how food binds and defines us, powers politics, shapes our beliefs, explains our past, and forecasts our future. Each episode will take viewers on a journey around the world, exploring the ingredients that have built societies, shaped spirituality and forever altered the human story.
The upcoming series will be showrun and executive produced by Emmy-nominated filmmaker Xan Aranda with Chris Rice, Michael Antinoro, Max Wagner, James Beard and Emmy award-winning writer Matt Goulding alongside Fukunaga and Redzepi also listed as executive producers.
‘Omnivore’ is the second Apple Original series attached to Cary Joji Fukunaga following his first-look deal for scripted television series. The celebrated director, writer and cinematographer will make his Apple TV+ debut later this year as both director and executive producer on the highly anticipated WWII drama miniseries ‘Master’s of the Air.’
