Josh Peck Best Bite Wins Roku Channel Competition Series Picked Up


Roku is getting further into the food TV space, picking up a new series called Best Bite Wins.

The food competition series will be hosted and executive produced by actor Josh Peck, with chef Monti Carlo serving as the show’s culinary expert. The six-episode series is produced by Velvet Hammer Media and Bongo Pictures.

The concept of Best Bite Wins is to turn cocktail party food into a competition, with professional chefs competing to present the best party food to hungry judges and clientele at real events, including birthday parties and retirement celebrations. 

“We thrilled to partner with Josh Peck, Velvet Hammer Media, and [EP] Michael Bloom to bring a fresh and fun new competition series for our audience to devour,” said Olivia LaRoche, head of alternative originals for Roku. “Food content deeply resonates with our streamers, and we’re pleased to give them more of what they love and further bolster our Roku Originals slate with Best Bite Wins.” 

Food content has become a big genre for Roku, with programs like The Great American Baking Show, Morimoto’s Sushi Master, Emeril Cooks and other food programming doing well for the streaming platform through its Roku Channel FAST offering.

“The Roku Channel has a menu of original content that is unmatched,” Peck added. “I couldn’t be happier to be joining the slate, along with Velvet Hammer Media and Bongo Pictures, to bring Best Bite Wins to hungry viewers everywhere.”

“Josh, Monti and Velvet Hammer really created an incredibly fun and competitive atmosphere around everyone’s love and infatuation with appetizers,” added Bloom. “The main course doesn’t matter on this series! Really love how the team at Roku leaned right in from their first bite of this concept.” 

The six-episode series is produced by Velvet Hammer Media and Bongo Pictures. Jennifer O’Connell and Rebecca Quinn executive produce for Velvet Hammer Media. Michael Bloom, Josh Peck and Matthew Hobin also serve as executive producers
