Food Docuseries “Omnivore” Coming to Apple TV+
“Omnivore” will explore how food both finds and defines humans, and contributes to our politics and beliefs. Each episode will look at the impact of key ingredients, with viewers taking on a trip around the world. Apple TV+ had not confirmed a release date for the show at the time of this writing.
Mr. Redzepi, who runs the three-Michelin-star restaurant Noma in Copenhagen, Denmark, will narrate the series. The chef is also involved in MAD (which means “food” in Danish), a nonprofit organization that aims to provoke change in global food systems. He and Mr. Fukunaga developed “Omnivore” with James Beard and Emmy award-winning writer Matt Goulding. Xan Aranda (“My Love,” “Room 104”) will serve as showrunner. Filmmaker Mr. Fukunaga has a first look deal with Apple TV+ and is the director of “Masters of the Air” from companies run by Stephen Spielberg and Tom Hanks.
