Alison Roman to host a cooking show for CNN+ – Deadline


Alison Roman is the latest personality to sign up for CNN’s upcoming subscription streaming service, CNN+.

The writer and author will host what the network describes as an “all-new, very opinionated and never temperamental cooking show,” produced by its CNN Original Series unit.

Roman said in a statement, “I’ve dreamed of bringing a new kind of food and cooking show to life for years and I can’t think of a better place to make it a reality.”

Roman is the author of Nothing Fancy and Dining In. She produces her own YouTube Home Movies cooking series and newsletter. She was previously a columnist for NYT Cooking and editor of Bon Appétit. Roman left NYT Cooking in late 2020, after comments she made about Chrissy Teigen suggesting she was sold. Roman later apologized, but his column was put on hold.

The show will debut on CNN+, with its launch scheduled for the spring. Her series will be available later this year, the network said. The show’s executive producers are Roman, along with Zero Point Zero Production’s Lydia Tenaglia and Chris Collins. Amy Entelis and Lyle Gamm are the executive producers of CNN Original Series, and Jon Adler is the CNN unit supervising producer.

The show is the last announced by CNN+. Other personalities who will have series include Chris Wallace, Anderson Cooper and Kasie Hunt.
