Thanks to Eater and @amateurgourmet for this one. You knew this was coming, right? That at some point the current trend of considering food as, well, a trend rather than a daily requirement would spill over into outright parody. Thank god. Coming March 9th is a web series called Foodies, a dramatic-comedy that follows the culinary and personal adventures of a group of L.A. people who spend way too much time thinking about David Chang.
The plot description alone is worth the price of admission (or lack thereof): “An overly-critical food blogger's world gets flipped upside down when his exclusive dinner club is infiltrated by his ex-girlfriend's fiancé.”
The episodes are written and directed by Japhy Grant and star Daniel Franzese (Mean Girls), Jeffery Self (30 Rock, 90210), Sean Hankinson (Prom Queen), Carlee Avers (Veronica Mars) and Anne Lane (Dorm Life). Check out the Facebook page for more information and watch the show at freefoodies.com.
