Primetime Soap Opera In Development For Fox Revolving Around NYC Restaurant Biz Entitled HUNGRY!

Speak no more primetime execs that the art of the soap and the genre is dead, when apparently all major networks and cable outlets are clearly looking to air more soapy drama after the smash success of season one of Fox’s Empire.

And on that note, comes news Tuesday from Variety, that Fox has another soap opera in development centering around the New York City restaurant business entitled, Hungry!  Marti Noxon, who is having much success of late with her other projects, UnReal for Lifetime which features former One Life to Live star Josh Kelly, and Bravo’s Girlfriend’ Guide to Divorce, is on board to be the pilot’s executive producer along with Meryl Poster from a script written by Nina Colman.

The concept of the story is that it’s an hourlong soap set in the down and dirty, cutthroat and exciting restaurant world of New York City. The series centers on a young, aspiring chef who lands the thankless job as a line cook for one of Manhattan’s most famous — and infamous — culinary stars.   For those who may also know Noxon from her other primetime projects, you may recall Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Angel, where she got her start.   Marti is also serving as the executive producer for the upcoming CBS drama Code Black debuting in September.

What do you think about the latest story concept for a primetime soap, Hungry?  Who would you like to see star in it? Comment below!

I would like to make a suggestion. I don’t know if you actually read the comments people leave but, if I May plant a seed for actor Matthew Atkinson. I believe that he can play any part you put in front of him. He just got through with a part from Young and the Restless back in March. Their Loss can be your gain. I say get a hold of his agent and book him.

I would love to see YR star Sharon Case and former YR star Michael Muhney.

Matthew Atkinson can really use a meaty role. Something that he can sink his acting chops into if U know what I mean. He’s a great actor he just needs a really good break.

Well since the success of Empire I knew it would just be a matter of time before each network would develop their own night time soap revolving around a business /industry. I was right.

Maybe JPL should get a role on this show instead of playing Philip on Days!
