December 2nd 2019: Toronto, Canada – Leading global entertainment producer marblemedia, in association with OutEast Entertainment, is thrilled to announce the launch of its new premium unscripted series, Restaurants on the Edge,which will premiere on Blue Ant Media’s Cottage Life channel in Canada on January 2, 2020 with two back-to-back episodes at 8:00 pm ET/PT and 9:00 pm ET/PT.
Each hour-long episode invites viewers into a new restaurant located in a stunning location—on the edge of an ocean, a mountain, or desert. But despite their outstanding views, these eateries are struggling to create an experience that lives up to their incredible surroundings.
A team of experts lead the way in restaurant transformations that span 10 countries across the 13 episodes: chef Dennis Prescott, designer Karin Bohn and restaurateur Nick Liberato. By tapping into the soul of the restaurant’s surroundings and its community, and by incorporating local tastes, flavours and textures, each expert embarks on a journey to transform not just the restaurant, but the owners’ outlook as well.
“Restaurants on the Edgeis a unique format that combines food, design, travel and culture,” said marblemedia co-CEO and executive producer Matt Hornburg. “We look forward to international audiences falling in love with these incredible stories.”
“There are shows in this space that take a negative or hyper-critical approach to improvements, but Restaurants on the Edgetakes the opposite tack: it’s uplifting, inspirational and positive,” said Courtney Hazlett, executive producer and series creator with OutEast Entertainment. “Language barriers, cultural differences – those melt away when you take an interest in how people live and eat. I hope audiences feel that too.”
“Blue Ant Media enjoyed working with marblemedia on this hugely inspirational and truly international series that stands out from the crowd of restaurant transformation programming,” says Sam Linton, head of original content, Blue Ant Media. “Restaurants on the Edgetakes viewers to the most breathtaking corners of the world, from Slovenia to Hawaii and Muskoka, to name a few. At its heart, it’s an uplifting documentary series that we hope will leave our Cottage Life viewers eager to learn more about local culture, food, and design.”
Featuring breathtaking locations and diverse ways of life, Restaurants on the Edge focuses on creating outstanding restaurant experiences by making connections with local communities and cultures. Co-produced by marblemedia, with executive producers Matt Hornburg and Mark J.W. Bishop, and OutEast Entertainment, with executive producers Courtney Hazlett and Steven Marrs. Produced in association with Blue Ant Media, series producers and directors Rob Brunner and Justin Harding and supervising producer Donna Luke.
