Ayesha Curry, Jussie Smollett and Jurnee Smollett Get Cooking Show on Food Network
Ayesha Curry, Jussie Smollett and Jurnee Smollett are heading to the Food Network, according to Vulture.
The basketball wife will star in Ayesha's Homemade, while the Smollett siblings (including Jake, Jocqui, Jojo, and Jazzwill) will take to the silver screen in Smollett Eats. Six episodes of both shows have been ordered.
Ayesha and Jussie went to Instagram to share their excitement about the big news.
"Something to smile about. Proud to be executive producing and appearing with my siblings in #SmollettEatsfor @foodnetwork. This has been a dream of @jakesmollett for so long and I'm hyped for the world to see what baby bro and the rest of us have up our culinary sleeves. Here we go," read an Instagram post by the Empire actor.
"Dreams do come true! Excited to join the @foodnetwork & Scripps family w/my new show "Ayesha's Homemade!" Can't wait for us to gather in the kitchen to cook up a few things together! Look for the show around October. Thank you for all of your love and loyalty!" read Ayesha's post.
This won't be the first time that Curry flexes her culinary skills for the camera. Since 2014, she's hosted a YouTube show, Little Lights of Mine, where she often cooks and shares recipes. Curry's first cookbook, The Seasoned Life, is also slated to arrive on Sept. 20. It contains "100 of her favorite recipes" including cast iron biscuits, homemade granola and her staple chicken soup.
The Smollett siblings have been busy as well. Jussie Smollett, who stars as the middle Lyon son on FOX's Empire, had a harrowing storyline during its final episodes. The Smollett sister is also starring in a show of her own, WGN America's critically-acclaimed, Underground.
