HBO Max Orders Reality Show ‘The Event,’ Which Follows Wolfgang Puck’s Catering Service

TCA 2020: Series chronicles event staff of Wolfgang Puck Catering

HBO Max has ordered restauranteur Wolfgang Puck’s catering reality show “The Event” to series.

Throughout eight unscripted, hour-long episodes, the series, which comes from Puck and Renegade 83, will follow members of Puck’s event catering team as they “strive to amaze clients and surpass even the highest expectations,” and will give fans access to “trade secrets and creative development for planning the world’s most exclusive parties while sharing the passions and process of a renowned event staff,” according to HBO Max.

“Wolfgang is one of the most accomplished chefs of our time and for decades has been the go-to restaurateur and caterer for the biggest names and events in Hollywood and across the country,” said Kevin Reilly, chief content officer HBO Max and president TNT, TBS, and TruTV. “This series will usher viewers into a world of opulence and luxury and showcase the unpredictable challenges he and his team encounter while executing the biggest and most exclusive A-list events we all wish we were invited to.”

“We are really excited to share a behind the scenes look at planning our most creative and complicated events with HBO Max subscribers,” Puck said.

HBO Max is WarnerMedia’s new streaming service set to launch in May 2020.

“The Event” is executive produced by David Garfinkle and Jay Renfroe for Renegade 83. Other executive producers include Puck, Carl Schuster, Eamon Harrington and John Watkin.
