Breaking News: ABC Gives “Food Revolution” Primo Premiere Slot
ABC has just announced that “Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution” will have a special preview Sunday, March 21st at 10:01 p.m.
The premiere will repeat Friday, March 26th at 8 p.m., followed by the second all-new episode at 9 p.m.
Here’s a description of that second episode, courtesy of ABC:
“Jamie Oliver takes one step forward and two steps back as his efforts to transform the school lunch program of Huntington, West Virginia's Central City Elementary School are met with harsh criticism and resistance from the school cook, Alice Gue, plus city administrators, DJ Rod and even the school's first graders. But despite the opposition, he does successfully raise the ire of school parents with a shocking, no-nonsense display of the fat that's being fed to their children, and he's encouraged by the initiative of a few caring teachers. The Edwards family get a wake-up call when youngest son, Justin, gets a frank warning from a doctor about the long term health effects of his poor eating habits, but then Justin is encouraged by a one-on-one cooking lesson in Jamie's kitchen. After a week of ups and downs at Central City Elementary, the fate of Jamie's mission to stay on at the school lies in the hands of a few district administrators.”
I’m starting to think that my doubts about ABC’s faith in this show were completely unfounded. I think they’re thinking they’ve got something here after all…
