A new documentary will follow two teenage girls from the bottom of the culinary food chain as they take on the world’s best chefs and their palates, in this one-woman show.
‘Pumped Up,’ a new comedy from Amy Poehler, Will Ferrell and Amy Schumer, will be broadcast on PBS starting on January 23.
Amy Poehlman stars as the new series’ host, a young mom in a tough place.
She’s got a tough childhood, and the only thing she can do to keep her kids out of trouble is stay in the spotlight.
But she doesn’t have any idea that there’s something about the people who make it on her show, the people she’s known all her life.
‘What are the secret recipes of a successful restaurant?’ she asks her daughter, Olivia.
‘I have no idea.’
Poehler says the show is not about a chef’s career.
It’s about a girl growing up in the most privileged household in America, in the midst of a food revolution.
‘The people in my life are my heroes,’ she says.
‘And it’s about the struggle of growing up and how to do what you love.
The show is about being a mom, growing up as an immigrant, being a black mom.
The whole point of the show, it’s not about that.
It was about a person who is the best-looking person on the planet, and yet, in her own unique way, she’s not a normal person.
‘When I was growing up, I had a really difficult time in terms of my race.
My mother was a very beautiful person, but she was not a white person.
And that’s how I got into the food world.
And I’m really grateful to have that privilege.
‘That privilege is what makes it fun.
And there’s a lot of pressure in our culture to be what you are.
But you can be who you are and you can go the other way.
I’ve always thought that I’m the best cook on Earth, and I don’t know why.
‘So I think it’s really important that we continue to fight for people who don’t look like us and for people of color.
I think we can all make it in this world.’
The show stars Amy Poehls brother, Ben, and her boyfriend, Ben Esposito.
‘A Bigger Picture’ airs every Tuesday on PBS.
