SANDWICH KING JEFF MAURO HEADS TO PRIMETIME WITH NEW SERIES "$24 IN 24" PREMIERING MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 24th AT 10:30PM ET/PT

Daytime Hit Sandwich King Returns for Third Season Saturday, September 9th at 11am ET/PT

NEW YORK - August 20, 2012 - Sandwich King Jeff Mauro joins the Food Network primetime lineup this fall with the new seven-episode, half-hour series $24 in 24, where Jeff discovers the best cheap, local eats in cities across America. Each week, he hits a new locale with a budget of just $24 to find the tastiest breakfast, lunch and dinner in town. From unexpected mom and pop shops to globally inspired spots, Jeff's coast-to-coast journey proves great food doesn't have to break the bank. $24 in 24 premieres Monday, September 24th at 10:30pm ET/PT, while Jeff's hit daytime series Sandwich King returns for a third season on Saturday, September 9th at 11am ET/PT.

"Jeff's infectious personality, sense of humor and true passion for food make him a fan favorite," said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Food Network. "With $24 in 24 and Sandwich King, our audience will be entertained both on the road and in the kitchen by Jeff's unique take on accessible, delicious meals."

Jeff hits Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New York City and Philadelphia in the first season of $24 in 24. From a hearty Cuban breakfast sandwich at Porto's Bakery in Los Angeles and fresh Chicken Verde Chili from Palookaville's Chili in Cleveland for lunch to an authentic Italian Beef Sandwich with Homemade Giardiniera dinner at Scatchell's Beef & Pizza for dinner, Jeff's mission to find local, high-quality cuisine on the cheap delivers some fantastic finds.

Sandwich King, where Jeff proves you can turn any meal into a sandwich and any sandwich into a meal, returns for season three with an episode dedicated to the deli. Inspired by a visit to Chicago's famous Manny's deli, Jeff prepares a scrumptious spread of Latke Corned Beef Sandwich with Apple and Sour Cream Slaw, Brisket with Smoked Mozzarella and Red Cabbage Slaw and Carrot Cranberry Salad.

Jeff Mauro, winner of the seventh season of Food Network Star, graduated from California's Hollywood Kitchen Academy and has worked in the food industry since high school in various roles, including line cook, caterer and chef instructor. After pursuing a career as an entertainer and comedian in Los Angeles, Jeff returned to Chicago to spend time doing what he loves: cooking. His down-to-earth personality coupled with his comic relief make a great combination in the kitchen.

Sandwich King is produced by Rock Shrimp Productions and $24 in 24 is produced by Custom Productions.
