During a TCA Summer Press Tour presentation, National Geographic Content President Courteney Monroe announced a brand new non-fiction series “Appetite For Adventure”.
Decorated pitmaster and U.S. Navy veteran Big Moe Cason is leaving his culinary comforts of the American South behind and heading off with an “Appetite For Adventure”, embarking on an epic global journey to seek out the planet’s most mouthwatering mythical dishes cooked over an open flame.
After competing in over 260 BBQ contests in 35 states, he’s ready to hit the road in search of other ways people around the globe are cooking with fire, meeting with stewards of fantastic flavors, walking in their boots, and learning the impact these flame broiled dishes have on bonding their community. As someone whose culinary spark came from his grandmother cooking for big family meals, Big Moe will focus on cooking hearty comfort food over an open flame, with dishes that speak to the traditions and local spirit of each location. Big Moe will discover that no matter how difficult the struggles are to reach these locations and be mentored on new techniques, some things in life are worth the extra effort.
“Appetite For Adventure” will begin production in October 2021.
“Appetite For Adventure” is produced by Hit + Run, the team behind Nat Geo Wild’s fan-favorite series “Critter Fixers: Country Vets”. For Hit + Run, the executive producer is Rob Shaftel. For National Geographic, Lauren Thompson is executive producer, Matt Renner is vice president of production, and Alan Eyres is senior vice president, production and development. Big Moe Cason is represented by The Burke Management Firm.
