marblemedia, in association with OutEast Entertainment, is set to launch the new premium unscripted series Restaurants on the Edge.
Each hourlong episode of the series will invite viewers into a new restaurant located in a stunning location that is struggling to create an experience that lives up to its outstanding view. A team of experts leads the restaurant transformations, which span ten countries across the 13 episodes, tapping into the soul of the restaurant’s surroundings and its community, incorporating local tastes, flavors and textures. Restaurants on the Edge is slated to premiere on Blue Ant Media’s Cottage Life channel in Canada on January 2.
marblemedia co-CEO and executive producer Matt Hornburg said: “Restaurants on the Edge is a unique format that combines food, design, travel and culture. We look forward to audiences falling in love with these incredible stories.”
Courtney Hazlett, executive producer and series creator with OutEast Entertainment, said: “There are shows in this space that take a negative or hyper-critical approach to improvements, but Restaurants on the Edge takes the opposite tack: it’s uplifting, inspirational and positive. Language barriers, cultural differences—those melt away when you take an interest in how people live and eat. I hope audiences feel that too.”
Sam Linton, head of original content at Blue Ant Media, said: “Blue Ant Media enjoyed working with marblemedia on this hugely inspirational and truly international series that stands out from the crowd of restaurant transformation programming. Restaurants on the Edge takes viewers to the most breathtaking corners of the world, from Slovenia to Hawaii and Muskoka, to name a few. At its heart, it’s an uplifting documentary series that we hope will leave our Cottage Life viewers eager to learn more about local culture, food and design.”
