CNN renews food show ‘Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy’


CNN has renewed Stanley Tucci’s travel and food show “Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy” for a second season, the cable outlet announced Wednesday.

The show features the actor traveling throughout various regions of Italy, sampling local delicacies and interviewing chefs, restaurateurs and other people involved in the country’s food industry.

The show is seen as a successor to CNN’s “Parts Unknown,” the travel, culture and food program hosted by the late Anthony Bourdain that launched in 2013. That show won multiple Emmy awards before it ended in 2018 after Bourdain took his own life.

Tucci has been a vocal advocate for the arts, testifying in a 2012 hearing of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on the Interior.

More recently, he was one of several celebrities included in a public service announcement last year calling on Americans to “take responsibility” for addressing racism and injustice that aired following nationwide protests over the death of George Floyd.

Tucci has been nominated for several awards, including an Academy Award. He has starred in movies such as “The Devil Wears Prada,” “Captain America: The First Avenger” and “The Hunger Games.”
