AN MC PRODUCTION  

Wild Food follows Georgia Pellegrini as she travels the globe in search of her next great wild to table meal. Through adrenaline-pumping experiences led by the locals, she explores not only the food but it's place within the culture. 

Georgia and I both love adventure and food so creating Wild Food came natural to us. We wanted to be a part of something that brought people together and inspired us all to slow down and live a connected life.

ABOUT  

Interviewing His Holiness the Dalia Lama 

I began my television career in news and quickly transitioned to the wild world of reality television. Now, almost eighteen years later, I’m an Executive Producer and Content Creator with over 60 television credits, 300+ episodes produced and a passion for story telling that has allowed me to lead teams in 27 countries. I’ve garnered partnerships with Lionsgate, Scripps and production companies in Los Angeles and NYC for my own show concepts.  I had the honor of partnering with NATPE as an Executive Producer of their inaugural Omni Cultural TV Fest. 

 

Over the years I’ve gratefully played a key role in all aspects of production. From vetting and hiring all above and below the line staff, overseeing and analyzing budgets, production calendars, to supervising all aspects of pre, pro, and post production, while maintaining the creative integrity of every project. 

 

My diverse career in television has given me a comprehensive understanding of the industry. From building a production company, to show development, casting the perfect talent, scouting and planning shoots, to negotiating millions in branded integrations, to writing scripts, directing, conducting interviews, providing notes on all editorial cuts, to working with networks to meet deadlines, I’ve been able to create world-class content but there is always more to learn and do. 

 

From the Emmy- nominated series, Dancing with the Stars, to Secret Millionaire and The Bachelor and Bachelorette franchise, I’m honored to have helped pioneer and launch many popular shows for networks like, ABC, NBC, FOX, A&E, Comedy Central, E! Entertainment, MTV, VH1, Food Network, Dand TVLand. 

 

I’ve had the honor of telling stories for some of today’s most influential people. From His Holiness the Dalai Lama to President Bill Clinton, Donna Karan, Kevin Costner, William Shatner, Terry Bradshaw, Harry Connick Jr., Sir Elton John, and many more. 

 

Story telling is an amazing medium to change lives and I’m grateful to be a small agent of that change.
