LOS ANGELES, CA, JUNE 28, 2021 -- YouTube Originals today revealed the celebrities, chefs, activists and creators gathering around a shared table for "Recipe for Change," a new global special, from LeBron James' The SpringHill Company and produced by Michelle Kwan. This series, which celebrates global Asian and Pacific Islander (API) culture, premieres on June 30 on Jason Y. Lee's Jubilee YouTube Channel.

In "Recipe for Change," hosts Michelle Kwan, Hasan Minhaj and Eugene Lee Yang will partner with esteemed chefs Jet Tila, Alvin Cailan and Melissa King to host dinner guests including Olivia Munn, Jay Shetty, Margaret Cho, BD Wong, Katelyn Ohashi, Lisa Ling, Auli'i Cravalho, Asia Jackson, Simu Liu, Amanda Nguyen, Tina Tchen, Ross Butler and Jason Y. Lee; fellow activists, artists and allies Sophia Bush and Brandon Flynn; and an appearance from Joel Kim Booster to celebrate global Asian and Pacific Islander (API) culture and discuss the recent and historic acts of hate and violence against the API community. The most interesting and provocative conversations emerge around the dinner table as those from the Asian community, and their allies, prove that when oppressed groups band together, the minority becomes a powerful majority and tiny ripples of action can create tidal waves of change.

80% of the crew behind "Recipe for Change" identify as AAPI. LeBron James and Maverick Carter will serve as executive producers on the special with their media conglomerate the SpringHill Company. Michelle Kwan and Dennis Cheng will also executive produce alongside Jamal Henderson and Philip Byron of the SpringHill Company. Co-executive producers include Camille Maratchi and Courtney Whitaker also of the SpringHill Company with Rich Kim and Karla LeCroix. The special's showrunner is Joel Relampagos with talent booking provided by Cultivated Entertainment led by Jen Proctor.

Susanne Daniels is Global Head of Original Content for YouTube, and Nadine Zystra is the Head of Family, Impact, and Learning YouTube Originals. Kohta Asakura, Lauren Vrazilek, and Amina Wilson are Creative Development Executives for YouTube Originals and will oversee the project for the global platform. Danny Zaccagnino and Dena Qashqai will oversee talent for the show.

Additional forthcoming YouTube Originals projects addressing diversity, inclusion and major cultural moments include new episodes of "Glad You Asked," a third installment of "Bear Witness, Take Action," the upcoming new series "The Outsiders" and "Onyx Family Dinner;" an October 2021 sustainability slate of original content including "Seat At The Table" with YouTube creator and climate advocate Jack Harries and David Attenborough;, "Stay Wild" [working title], where Brave Wilderness in partnership with Lppian Way and Madica Productions transport viewers directly to the front lines of climate change, and "Shut It Off ASAP" [working title] with YouTube Creators AsapSCIENCE; plus "YouTube Pride 2021," a multi-hour, star-studded livestream event celebrating the LGBTQ+ community as celebrity emcees Elton John and David Furnish, Demi Lovato, Olly Alexander with Mawaan Rizwan, Trixie Mattel, and Daniel Howell each host their Pride party from their respective YouTube channels and encourage viewers to to help the LGBTQ+ community by raising funds for the Elton John AIDS Foundation, The Trevor Project and akt.
