          No one knows food television quite like Guy Fieri. Not only is he a Food Network Star, but he has visited countless restaurants on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, his fan-favorite road show. Now, though, Guy is getting ready to work on another traveling food show — but not his own. On Guy's Big Project, Guy and his team of esteemed production partners and A-list chefs will set out to search for all-star talent to lead Food Network's next big culinary-travel series.

          The six-episode journey documents every twist and turn as the hopefuls move from initial pitch and development through network review, with the ultimate end goal of earning a brand-new show on Food Network. Guy and his team of experts, including Iron Chef Alex Guarnaschelli and veteran television producer Mark Dissin, are taking the most-promising prospects out on the road to see who has what it takes to be a success. The competition begins with the finalists picking a restaurant that best represents them and their show idea, where they film a 30-second video to convey what their show would be about. Then, the pressure heats up as they whip up a meal that embodies their idea in Guy’s personal kitchen. One prospect will find the feedback hard to chew and will be sent home. 


          As the season progresses, the prospects are put through the paces by Guy and his team, learning that there is a lot more to hosting a food-television show than a passion for food and cooking skills.  From describing each bite of food in order to convey the flavors, aromas and textures, to engaging the audience while eating and interviewing a wide variety of chefs, there is a lot to digest especially when your hopes and dreams are on the line.

         On the finale, the remaining prospects each shoot a pilot employing all the skills they learned from the previous weeks. After submitting their tapes to the network, they must wait to hear the decision. Immediately following the finale, viewers will find out who made the cut as they get a sneak peek of the winner’s series!
