Paris Hilton Lands Cooking Show At Netflix
WASHINGTON — Paris Hilton has teamed up with Netflix for a new show called “Cooking With Paris,” inspired by her successful YouTube video of the same name. The video went viral in January 2020, when Hilton made lasagna at home. The video has over 5 million views till date.
As per a media organization, the cooking show will feature the hotel heiress and business mogul learning her way around the kitchen with the help of her famous friends.
Hilton announced her reality show via her Instagram handle on July 13, 2021, and expressed her excitement about the same.
“I’m so excited!!” she wrote.
“Next month, I’m returning to television, and this time I’ll be taking over the kitchen! My new show #CookingWithParis premieres on August 4, only on @Netflix. Stay tuned for more announcements!”
Friends and fans showered the personality with love and best wishes for the show in her comments section.
“I can attest your cooking is as tasty as it is cute and funny to watch!” commented Carter Reum, her fiancé.
“This is going to be awesome,” commented director Chris Applebaum.
“Queen of TV shows is coming back to the throne!!!” a user commented.
The series will take a spin on the traditional cooking show, as Hilton is not a trained chef and doesn’t know how to cook, but she certainly knows how to entertain viewers at home.
“Cooking With Paris” will launch globally on the streamer on August 4 with six half-hour episodes.
Hilton will invite her celebrity friends into her kitchen in the series as she navigates new ingredients, new recipes, and exotic kitchen appliances. Hilton will take viewers from the grocery store to the finished table spread.
Hilton will embrace her “very newly domesticated side” as per the streaming giant. At the same time, she “learns to saute, sear and zest” and show off her “culinary expertise (or lack thereof), glam kitchen wardrobe and party-throwing skills with some of her fab celeb friends.”
Hilton will serve as an executive producer, along with Aaron Saidman, Eli Holzman, and Rebecca Hertz. The series hails from The Intellectual Property Corporation, an Industrial Media company.
“Cooking With Paris” is the latest project for Hilton, who launched her own production company, Slivington Manor Entertainment, and signed an overall deal at Warner Bros.
She also has a wedding reality show coming up at Peacock, tentatively titled “Paris in Love,” which she will also executive produce. The series follows her as she prepares to get married to venture capitalist Reum.
The heiress to Hilton hotels, she first rose to fame in the early 2000s as a socialite whose life played out in the tabloids.
Hilton first got Hollywood’s attention with her hit reality show, “The Simple Life,” with Nicole Richie.
Last year, Hilton released a YouTube documentary, “This Is Paris,” which explored her childhood trauma and received rave reviews, showing a very raw, different side of her life. The documentary premiered at the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival.
