Food and comedy - my two favorite things!!!!!!! AMC is rumored to be creating its first original comedy series, Foodies. The series will follow a group of food-obsessed friends in Los Angeles.
I'm hoping the show pokes funat foodies, an emerging group of food lovers who indulge in eating and drinking as a hobby. I'm not saying there's something wrong with being a foodie, eating and drinking are, in fact, two of my favorite hobbies.
I do think AMC has an awesome chance to exaggerate or parody this demographic, portraying them as those people who drop $100 on every meal, constantly talk about the tannins in wine and only Instagram their food.
This will be AMC's first attempt at an original comedy, but Mad Men and Breaking Bad prove that the network knows how to make great TV. There hasn't been much info released about this series just yet, but it's safe to say that if you've ever described your dish as "deconstructed", this show might offend you a little.
