Food meets music in revolutionary new series from MTV

2015-03-19 06:00

Cape Town - MTV, DStv Channel 130, is to revolutionise the traditional cooking series for today’s youth audience with a piquant pinch of added millenial infused spice. 

Brothers Green: EATS!, a new half-hour series features Brooklyn-based brothers Mike and Josh Greenfield as they dish up ‘food for the people, by the people’, drawing inspiration from across New York City and around the world, and featuring cameo appearances from surprise guests and A-list musicians.

Brothers Green: EATS! will premiere exclusively on MTV in sub-Saharan Africa weekly from Friday 17 April at 21:15 CAT (repeats Saturdays at 19:00 CAT from Saturday 18 April).

While the Brothers Green, comprising real-life siblings Mike and Josh Green, were building up a cult following on their YouTube channel with their unique, irreverent "dorm room-style" cooking tips, MTV was searching for the perfect blend of cooking, comedy and fun for its youth audience - and hey presto: the dream recipe was born.

"This programme will be our answer to the traditional cooking show, MTV-style," said Dillon Khan, Channel Director, MTV & VH1 Classic, Africa.

"Mike and Josh are a unique duo – they’re super passionate, highly creative and custom-made for the MTV audience. They’re resourceful, 'make something outta nothing' kind of guys. And our viewers are going to love them."

"It’s been one heck of a time working with MTV," said Mike. "We’re so freaking excited to share what we’ve been creating in our kitchen – we’ve been gathering inspiration from around the world to create meals that are absurdly delicious and incredibly easy to make."

"Our show is going to be unlike anything you’ve ever seen before," added Josh. "It’s a perfect blend of epic food, quick and easy eats you can make at home, and music from around the globe. Come hang out with the Brothers Green for an endless eating adventure!"

Here's the history of the Brothers Green and how they started cooking:
