Keke Palmer is coming to Disney+ in a brand new competition series called FOODTASTIC as both a host and executive producer. The unscripted build competition series pits teams of contestants who are challenged to create whimsical, larger-than-life, Disney-inspired works of art made out of all types of food from cheese and butter to fruits and vegetables.
The 11-episode series started production this week and is slated to premiere on Disney+ later this year. NYC’s City Cakes founder Chef Benny Rivera and FLOUR SHOP founder Amirah Kassem will serve as judges.
In each self-contained episode, three teams of food artists transform iconic characters into extravagant masterpieces that tell a story from Disney’s legendary IP. These food sculptures will be judged purely on their design, technical skills and narrative, and not by taste. Unused food from each competition will be donated to local food banks.
FOODTASTIC is produced by Endemol Shine North America. In addition to Palmer, Josh Silberman, Sarah Happel Jackson and Endemol Shine North America’s Sharon Levy, DJ Nurre and Michael Heyerman are executive producers.

FOODTASTIC is expected debut exclusively on Disney+ this year. An exact date has not yet been announced.
