FYI’s new original series, “What the Fung?!,” follows comedians and brothers, Andrew and David Fung, as they travel across America in search of the best local spots to eat. Thirteen half-hour episodes are set to premiere on Thursday, May 21 at 9pm ET.
In “What the Fung?!,” The Fung Brothers, will take viewers on a comedic culinary journey as they eat their way across the US, all while attempting to eat like “ballers” on a budget. With just fifty dollars each to spend on the best cheap eats, the brothers will sample the most iconic food – from authentic, regional cuisine to more innovative and modern bites – each city has to offer.
From New Orleans, to Tampa, Asheville and more – the brothers will meet chefs, and foodie fans like themselves, while gaining access to the kitchens and people behind the food they eat. They will also learn hands-on how to make signature dishes from restaurant owners and chefs.
“We are excited to bring The Fung Brothers’ huge energy and unique sense of humor to FYI to cover food in a fresh and youthful way,” said Jana Bennett, President of FYI and LMN.
Seattle born, and now Los Angeles-based, The Fung Brothers have always had a passion for comedy, hip-hop and food. After college, they decided to share these passions by making original sketches, rap songs and food videos. Today, their YouTube fan base is nearly one million strong.
“What the Fung?!” is produced for FYI by BSTV Entertainment. Beth Burke and Blake Swerdloff are executive producers for BSTV Entertainment. Executive producers for FYI are Gena McCarthy and James Bolosh.
