Nickelodeon is whipping up epic culinary adventures in the brand-new series The Tiny Chef Show, premiering Friday, September 9, at 11:30 a.m. (ET/PT). Produced in association with Imagine Kids+Family and Nickelodeon Animation, the series follows the titular social media sensation and herbivore as he introduces and cooks new recipes for the world’s tiniest plant-based dishes from his tree-stump home.
The Tiny Chef Show will premiere on Nick’s preschool platforms in the U.S., as well as Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. channels internationally. Paramount Consumer Products will lead consumer products licensing for Tiny Chef worldwide in partnership with Imagine Kids+Family.
In Season 1 of The Tiny Chef Show, Chef welcomes a variety of celebrity guests — Kristen Bell, Sky & Ocean Brown, Tabitha Brown, Josh Dela Cruz, Josh Gad, Liza Koshy, RZA, That Girl Lay Lay and Keith L. Williams — to talk food, friendship and more.
Each episode will feature RuPaul as the voice announcer and showcase different ingredients, foods and dishes by Chef with the help from his friends: Olly, a practical and excitable robot who works closely with Chef assisting in the preparation of each episode’s dish; Ruby, Chef’s beloved caterpillar pet, friend and confidant with a boundless appetite; Henry, a loyal and loving snail who moves slowly around the stump and reveals Chef’s Dish of the Day; and Stump Band, the show’s very own house band consisting of a fork, spatula and spoon.
In the season premiere, “Pancakes/S’Mores,” Tiny Chef makes pancakes but loses his confidence when he breaks his special lucky pancake flipping spatula, but with some help from his friends, Chef whips up something new for a campout and overcomes his fear of the dark.
The Tiny Chef Show is executive produced by Imagine Entertainment Executive Chairmen Brian Grazer and Ron Howard, Imagine Kids+Family President Stephanie Sperber, as well as Kristen Bell, Morgan Sackett and Tiny Chef creators Rachel Larsen, Adam Reid and cinematographer Ozlem Akturk for Tiny Chef Productions.
Production of The Tiny Chef Show for Nickelodeon Animation is overseen by Eryk Casemiro, Executive Vice President, Nickelodeon Animation, Global Series Content and by Elly Kramer for Imagine Kids+Family. Jen Pace and Kate Crownover serve as Nickelodeon’s Executives in Charge of Production for the series.
