Chopped 420 Taps Into Cannabis Culinary Trend for Discovery+

The streaming service aims at younger, broader audience with weed-centric series


Fans of the Food Network’s long-running competition show, Chopped, are familiar with its celebrity story arcs. Martha Stewart will drop in for a handful of episodes this month and the show will offer cross-over kitchen battles—can anyone beat Bobby Flay? 

But an upcoming, limited-run series on the new Discovery+ streaming service aims to blow audiences away with a cannabis-spiked version of the linear TV favorite. Chopped 420 premieres, fittingly, on April 20.

Actor and comedian Ron Funches hosts the five hour-long episodes of Chopped 420 alongside a judging panel that will include drag performer and cannabis activist Laganja Estranja, comedian Tacarra Williams and chefs Esther Choi, Sam Talbot and Luke Reyes.
