The award winning singer, actor, beauty entrepreneur will be adding another title to her ever-growing list of accolades: a celebrity chef with her own HBO show. Selena Gomez’s latest unscripted series, entitled “Untitled Cooking Project” is expected to launch on HBO Max this summer. Starring in and executive-produced by Gomez, the new show will see the starlet attempt to cook up some appetizing dishes in the unscripted cookalong.
Like many celebrities, influencers and regular people, in this time of quarantine, Selena has been cooking up a storm experimenting at home and sharing her culinary adventures with her 175 million Instagram followers.
Selena Gomez announced the forthcoming release of her new 10 episode show on the 5th of May 2020, along with a Spotify playlist curated by herself with a list of songs to cook along to. She stated, “I’ve always been very vocal about my love of food. I think I’ve been asked hundreds of times in interviews if I had another career, what would I do and I’ve answered that it would be fun to be a chef. I definitely don’t have the formal training though! Like many of us while being home I find myself cooking more and experimenting in the kitchen.”
Selena won’t be alone on the “Untitled Cooking Project,” as famous chefs will also be joining her in the kitchen, albeit remotely, to share tips and secrets whilst she learns how to cook a number of dishes as a beginner. Each episode will also promote a different food-related charity for viewers to be able to donate to – and this falls in line with Gomez’s passions and presence as a UNICEF ambassador and her work as a philanthropist.
Head of Original Content at HBO Max, Sarah Aubrey spoke about the new show and said, “We are so excited to have Selena Gomez in our first wave of programming on HBO Max and watch her adventures in the kitchen as she, like many of us, tries to improve her cooking skills during quarantine. Blending her determination with top-tier culinary artists is sure to entertain and educate viewers about something we’re all trying to work through – how to make cooking at home exciting, fun, and delicious.”
