Described as a “food-oriented lifestyle talk show,” the series will feature Burke interviewing various celebrity guests either at their home or at their favorite restaurant. Food will be a central part of the conversation, either as a starting point to spark important memories or as a topic in and of itself as Burke’s guests dish on their favorite meals or sentimental recipes.
The initial order is for six, 22-minute episodes, which will air weekly on Feeln starting this fall. Confirmed guests include Florence Henderson, Jane Seymour, Carnie Wilson, Ali Landry and Alejandro Gomez Monteverde, Roma Downey and Mark Burnett, and Nicole Ari Parker and Boris Kodjoe.
Executive producers for “Breaking Bread” include Burke, Rob Fried, Cristina Malavenda, Laurence Braun, and David Harte.
While Feeln’s first talk show, it’s not the first original series for the streaming service. Previously, it rebooted the ’80s animated series “Rainbow Brite” featuring the voices of Emily Osment and Molly Ringwald.
Feeln is also the exclusive distribution vehicle for the Hallmark Hall of Fame film collection, which currently includes more than 60 titles with 12 more on the way over the coming year. The streaming service was launched by Oscar-winning producer Rob Fried to cater to the “emerging digital boomer market.” Available across a number of platforms, Feeln goes for $3.99 per month or $23.99 per year.
