"WELL DONE WITH SEBASTIAN MANISCALCO" SEASON ONE JOINS FOOD NETWORK PRIMETIME LINEUP ON TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 16TH AT 10PM ET/PT
Season Two Begins Streaming Same Day on discovery+
NEW YORK - October 14, 2021 - Groundbreaking comedian Sebastian Maniscalco combines his passion for food and comedy in Well Done with Sebastian Maniscalco, which has its Food Network debut on Tuesday, November 16th at 10pm ET/PT with back-to-back episodes. In the seven-episode first season, he takes a deep dive into the gastronomic world from every angle. Filled with his signature social observations, commentary and appearances from his family and famous pals, Sebastian is all in to explore the food-centric topics he has always been curious about. In his first outing, he spends a day on the Pacific to find out what it takes to be a fisherman and see if fish actually tastes better when you catch it yourself - but first he has to overcome a brutal bout of seasickness. In upcoming episodes, he finds himself exploring the similarities between sushi and comedy with comedian Russell Peters, throwing a meat-centric dinner party for guests including Bert Kreischer and Anjelah Johnson, and going on sandwich expeditions with funny pals Rich Eisen, Fortune Feimster, Gillian Jacobs and Oscar Nuñez. Well Done with Sebastian Maniscalco, which premiered in August on discovery+, also starts streaming its second season Tuesday, November 16th on discovery+.
"With Well Done I'm mixing my two passions for humor and the culinary arts in a way that translates to anyone who is passionate about food and serious about comedy," shares Maniscalco. "What better place to share that than Food Network. Excited for those viewers to see what we've been up to on season one and can't wait to share new episodes on discovery+ with season two!"
"Sebastian's true obsession with food and the culinary arts combined with his one-of-a-kind sense of humor have made Well Done a must-watch," said Courtney White, President, Food Network and Streaming Food Content, Discovery Inc. "We are excited to bring the series to Food Network and launch season two on discovery+ to satisfy our audience who clearly wants more Sebastian."
