Apple TV+ today announced a series order for “Omnivore,” a new one-hour docuseries from filmmaker Cary Joji Fukunaga and chef René Redzepi that will tell the story of humanity and the planet through eight defining ingredients. Narrated by Redzepi, the force behind the revered restaurant Noma in Copenhagen,”Omnivore” will look at the world through the lens of food and explores how food binds and defines us, powers politics, shapes our beliefs, explains our past, and forecasts our future.
The logline: “Omnivore” explores the beauty, complexity and interconnectivity of human culture and the natural world through the way we manipulate, celebrate and consume its best resources – the ones we eat. Each episode will take viewers on a journey around the world, exploring the ingredients that have built societies, shaped spirituality and forever altered the human story.
Developed by Redzepi, Fukunaga and James Beard and writer Matt Goulding, “Omnivore” will be showrun and executive produced by Emmy-nominated filmmaker Xan Aranda (“My Love,” “Room 104”). The docuseries is produced by Film 45, Noma Projects, Parliament of Owls and Endeavor Content, who also serves as the studio. Redzepi, Fukunaga and Goulding serve as executive producers.
