By Christopher Rocchio, 11/23/2009
TLC has announced it has ordered Craving Comfort, a new reality series that will take a look at some of America's favorite comfort foods and the obsessions associated with them.
Each half-hour episode of the tentatively-titled series will follow chef Art Smith as he travels across the country and focuses on a specific comfort food -- from fried chicken to apple pie -- while exploring the dish and what has engrained it so much in American culture.
In addition, three different stories about the specific comfort food will be told in each episode.
"Craving Comfort celebrates the great personal stories behind America's classic comfort foods," said TLC programming executive Nancy Daniels.
"Art Smith's passion for great food and its ability to bring people together makes him the perfect host for this journey."
TLC has ordered eight episodes of the series, which is being produced by True Entertainment.
