Trailer: Netflix wants somebody to feed Phil
VOD News | On 29, Dec 2017
Somebody Feed Phil is Netflix’s cry at the start of 2018, as its new food documentary arrives.
The streaming giant has made a name for itself with its documentary output, snapping up several Oscar contenders over years. While many of its non-fiction films have focused on campaigning issues, though, Netflix’s TV documentaries have been far more diverse, from Chef’s Table to Errol Morris’ CIA LSD trip, Wormwood. Now, Netflix is adding to its edible factual line-up with Somebody Feed Phil.
The show sees Everybody Loves Raymond executive producer Phil Rosenthal travel the world to take in the local cuisine and culture. Over six episodes, he takes viewers on a goodwill eating tour that covers Tel Aviv, Lisbon, Saigon, Mexico City, New Orleans and Bangkok. Along for the ride are Phil’s friends, family and his trademark sense of humour.
The series premieres on Friday 12th January. Here’s a new trailer released today to whet your appetite – or for more on what’s coming soon to Netflix UK in January 2018, head this way.
