“The Pioneer Woman” star Ree Drummond has signed a new multi-year deal with Food Network, the cable channel’s president, Courtney White, said on Thursday. The three-year pact includes new episodes of her daytime series, which launched on the Food Network in 2011.
“Ree Drummond’s incredible following and popularity has led her from a small-town blogger to successful entrepreneur with a hotel, restaurant and general store, author of several cookbooks and quarterly magazine, a line of best-selling cookware and more,” White said. “But she never deviates from her roots, always sharing a passion for food and cooking for her loved ones. With this new deal she will be able to continue to connect with Food Network’s viewers offering more of her accessible cooking style and family-focused country life.”
Drummond added: “After all these years together, Food Network is like family to me. There’s nowhere else I’d rather be when it comes to sharing the things that are most important to me: food, friends, community, family–and don’t forget fun! I’m so excited for our continued partnership, and for many more good times ahead.”
