Andy Samberg to host Quibi cooking competition series
Though fans don’t have to worry about Brooklyn Nine-Nine going anywhere anytime soon with its recent renewal, Andy Samberg has found a new project in the form of the competition series Biggest Little Cook-Off at forthcoming streaming service Quibi, according to Deadline.
The series, which will be hosted and executive produced by Samberg, will follow two top chefs as they battle to create mouth-watering meals in just a single bite of food. The competitors will face challenges such as making spaghetti and meatbals on a plate the size of a dime or sushi on a single grain of rice.
“Anyone who knows me knows I love dinky stuff,” Samberg said. “So when this show about dinky food came my way I said, ‘I like the dinky food’. I’m excited to bring my expertise in dinky things to the dinky cooking arena, and I’m also excited to bring a bag lunch, because the food is so dinky I’m for sure going to still be hungry after the shows.”
Biggest Little Cook-Off will also be produced by Triage Entertainment, the production division of Levity Live, which also produces Comedians of the World for Netflix, and will be executive produced by Samberg, Michael Rosenstein, Stephen Kroopnick and Stu Schreiberg.
The Samberg-led cooking competition joins a roster of series on the forthcoming streaming service featuring high-profile talent including Zac Efron (Scoob!), Peter Farrelly (Green Book), the Russo Brothers (Avengers: Endgame) and Keifer Sutherland (Designated Survivor). The projects range from original series to adaptations of previous properties including The Fugitive, Turn of the Screw and Varsity Blues.
