Restaurant: Impossible's Robert Irvine To Helm Daytime Talker, 'The Robert Irvine Show,' Debuting On The CW Network This Fall

TRIBUNE STUDIOS AND IRWIN ENTERTAINMENT TO PRODUCE NEW FIRST-RUN SYNDICATION STRIP TO AIR IN SEPTEMBER

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., June 20, 2016 -- The CW Network, Tribune Studios and Irwin Entertainment today announced a partnership to premiere "The Robert Irvine Show," which The CW Network will add to their weekday afternoon lineup beginning September 2016. "The Robert Irvine Show" will air Monday through Friday, 3:00-4:00 p.m., on The CW Network stations nationwide.

Tribune Studios, in affiliation with veteran television producer John Irwin ("Couples/Family Therapy," "Red Nose Day," "New Year's Eve With Carson Daly") and his eponymous Irwin Entertainment, and Robert Irvine Productions are bringing a new twist to first-run syndication with "The Robert Irvine Show," a 60-minute daytime conflict resolution talker. Andrew Scher ("The Doctors") will serve as Executive Producer.

Irvine, a versatile celebrity chef with over a decade of television under his belt, has a strong following as a fitness guru and is a tireless advocate of our nation's veterans, active duty military and military families. The series will showcase him providing help to families with his signature "tough love" approach to therapeutic work.

"The Robert Irvine Show" will be a strong complement to the successful daytime programs currently airing on Tribune Broadcasting's stations, and we are excited to partner with Irwin Entertainment on this project," said Sean Compton, President Strategic Programming and Acquisitions, Tribune Media.

"Robert has an impeccable reputation as not only one of the most successful and talented chefs in the world, he is also considered a role model and we are looking to embrace the philosophy that has made him a success, and use it to help individuals and families reach their full potential," added John Irwin.

"Helping people overcome their most trying obstacles has been an important part of my process since day one," added Irvine. "I'm thrilled to be working with Tribune, the CW, and Irwin Entertainment in bringing this exciting new talk format to life."

"We are very happy to join with Tribune Studios and Irwin Entertainment to bring viewers 'The Robert Irvine Show,' which will be a great fit for The CW's afternoon block and for our stations across the country," said Chris Brooks, Senior Vice President, Network Distribution, The CW.

About Robert Irvine

With more than 25 years in the culinary profession, Chef Robert Irvine has cooked his way through Europe, the Far East, the Caribbean and the Americas, in hotels and on the high seas. As the host of one of the Food Network's highest rated shows, Restaurant: Impossible, Irvine saves struggling restaurants across America by assessing and overhauling the restaurant's weakest spots. Irvine was previously the host of Food Network's Dinner: Impossible and Worst Cooks in America, has authored two cookbooks, Mission: Cook! and Impossible to Easy, and one healthy living book, Fit Fuel: A Chef's Guide to Eating Well and Living Your Best Life. Irvine is currently on tour with his new, interactive live show Robert Irvine Live, and appears regularly as an expert guest on national morning and daytime talk shows. In 2015, Irvine launched Robert Irvine Foods, a company that features a nutritionally improved line of food products without compromising great taste. Irvine recently established the eponymously named non-profit organization, The Robert Irvine Foundation, in an effort to support military personnel and their families. Now in operation for a few years, the foundation continues to grow and assist those in need. In recent years he was honored with two very distinguished recognitions for his dedication to the armed services and our country's heroes. He was first designated Honorary Chief Petty Officer by the U.S. Navy, and later that year awarded the Bob Hope Award for Excellence in Entertainment and Support of our Service Members - a distinguished Patriot Award bestowed upon him by the Congressional Medal of Honor Society. Continuing his support of the military, Irvine will soon become the first celebrity chef to open a restaurant, aptly named Chef Robert Irvine's Fresh Kitchen, at the Pentagon in the summer of 2016. Also, Irvine just announced the launch of the Robert Irvine Magazine in May 2016 and the opening of a new restaurant in Las Vegas at the Tropicana in 2017.
