Flay and Food Network have been in negotiations on a new contract for some time. The superstar chef’s most recent exclusive three-year pact with the Discovery-owned cable network expires at year’s end. Sources close to the situation say that Food Network has ended the negotiations.
CBS Television Distribution will syndicate a new show hosted by Food Network chefs Bobby Flay and Giada DeLaurentiis.
Bobby Flay and Giada DeLaurentiis are in talks to host a Regis and Kelly-like daily show — perhaps as soon as next year. Sources at several major TV studios says that talks are in the “very early stages.”
