'The Feed' premieres Aug. 21

Chef/author/TV guy Marcus Samuelsson (on right, of Aquavit in New York and lots more), Gail Simmons (Food & Wine special projects director, who you know as a "Top Chef" judge) and "comedian and food writer" Max Silvestri debut Aug. 21 in "The Feed," a show in which they chase trends, and compete in weird challenges.

I've seen an episode and it's reasonably entertaining (though one gets the feeling a producer kept telling Marcus to "turn it up!"): In that, slated to be the second aired, the three tackled a make-your-own-mashup and invented something useful (and Gail's actually was). More info here.
