Food Network's Michael Symon Takes On a New Set of Challenges in Dinner: Impossible Iron Chef To Take Over As Host Of Primetime Series

NEW YORK, April 22 -- Food Network's newest Iron Chef, Michael Symon, is ready for his next challenge -- becoming the host of popular primetime series Dinner: Impossible. Production begins this week with Symon at the helm of 10 new episodes, putting both his culinary and time management skills to the test. New episodes of the series, which airs Wednesdays at 10pm ET/PT, will begin airing this summer. The show will also adopt a new hour-long format.

On Dinner: Impossible, Symon will be challenged to overcome culinary obstacles and deliver a delicious meal before his time runs out. Each week, Symon (with the help of his sous-chefs) will be thrown a new culinary curveball and the team must figure out a way to solve their challenge before time runs out. With all new challenges, and a fresh perspective from this motorcycle riding, fun-loving chef, viewers will see if Symon can make dinner possible!

Renowned in the culinary world and adored in his hometown of Cleveland, Michael Symon is the chef and owner at the critically acclaimed Lola and Lolita restaurants in Cleveland. A graduate of The Culinary Institute of America, Michael was named as one of the Ten Best New Chefs in America by Food & Wine (1998). In 2007, he competed on The Next Iron Chef and won, securing his place as a permanent Iron Chef on Food Network's hit series Iron Chef America. Symon likes to unwind from his frenetic schedule with a zip on either of his dual vintage Harleys along the back streets of Cleveland.

Dinner: Impossible is produced by Marc Summers Productions Inc and Shooters Post & Transfer.
