Bobby Flay And Giada De Laurentiis May Team Up For A Daytime Talk Show

Could celebrity chefs Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis be teaming up for a syndicated daytime talk show? That's the word on the internet today, though it doesn't sound like anything's official yet. But given the success of their Food Channel talk shows, and their popularity among foodies it seems like it might be the next logical step for both of them.

Deadline is reporting that CBS TV Distribution is finalizing a deal with Flay and De Laurentiis to develop a syndicated daytime talk show, which is expected to be "in the vein of Live With Regis & Kelly. By that, perhaps day time chatter with a food focus? It seems likely that their appreciation for the culinary arts will factor into the show in some way. The aim would be to get the series on the air during Fall 2013.

As the site notes, Bobby Flay and Giada both received Daytime Emmy nominations for their Food channel series. While Flay's currently battling a barbecue addiction at the cable network with Bobby Flay's Barbecue Addiction, Giada continues to share her flare for Italian cuisine with Giada at Home. They've also served as judges on Food Network's Food Network Star, which might have helped them test their on-screen chemistry together. Both are certainly charismatic and knowledgable enough in their craft to make for great TV show hosts, so it should be interesting to see what happens when they're paired up to host their own show, should this all work out.
