Actor-meets-director-meets-screenwriter Jon Favreau is teaming up with celebrity chef Roy Choi for a brand new Netflix Originals series entitled The Chef Show.

It’s about appreciating friends, family, and tradition. An opportunity to come together. To learn, to share and to celebrate different flavors, cultures, and people.”
