About The Series:

Celebrity chef, author and restaurateur Vivian Howard, who previously hosted the award-winning series A CHEF’S LIFE, returns to PBS on SOMEWHERE SOUTH. The new six-part series is a culinary tour, exploring dishes that are uniting cultures and creating new traditions across the American South.

“Shooting SOMEWHERE SOUTH has made me look at what we call Southern food with a new set of spectacles. The home kitchens I learn in, the stories I hear people share, the food I watch them make — it has lit a fresh fire under me,” Vivian says. “I’m excited that, as Southerners, we can tell these complex stories through food and culture, and not shy away from our past or present.”
