Monday, August 07, 2006 | posted by Mike
Broadcasting & Cable and TV.com bring us word that the Food Network has a new head honcho of programming. Bruce Seidel will be the man paid to make the big decisions, which means he will be in charge of what you see. The article mentions that Seidel was previously responsible for bringing a number of shows through the production process, including The Next Food Network Star and Iron Chef America. He also spent some time at Discovery and HBO.
So, what does this mean? Will we see more of these reality/competition type shows? How will this impact the slow but steady creep away from cooking shows towards lifestyle and travel shows? Why doesn’t the Chairman wear those awesome sequined jackets like his uncle? We need answers!
