Bush’s Gavin Rossdale is launching a new cooking and entertainment show called EAT.
The leader, as Deadline reports, “will invite celebrities to his home in the Hollywood Hills where he will design, prepare and serve them a three-course meal.”
Rossdale will eat the food with his guests, discuss their careers and generally ask them what makes them tick. He can also jam with guests.
Tom Jones and 30 Rock alumni Jack McBrayer are the first confirmed guests on the program.
While EAT hasn’t found a streaming network or platform yet, filming for the show is said to be “in progress.” Roundtable Entertainment produces the series.
Rossdale said, “Roundtables are exactly the partners I was looking for to produce this project. They understand my vision and will help execute a compelling series in which we can see behind the public persona of people we know and admire for their work.
“This show is about connecting more deeply with them, listening to their stories, walking in their shoes. It’s hard to be surprised anymore; but the simplest surprises are the human revelations that occur around food and drink.
Like strong wire points out, the project has been an idea for some time. In 2010, IMDB wrote that Rossdale was in talks with the Food Network to host his own show.

During the COVID pandemic, Rossdale has made a series of instructional cooking videos for Peopletv.com (see videos above).
Meanwhile, the Bush and Stone Temple Pilots canceled their planned US tour last year, citing “unfortunate and unavoidable COVID-related circumstances”.
The joint venture was to start on September 30, 2021 and end on October 16, 2021.
“We are of course saddened by this news, but it is a sign of the times at the moment. We are so looking forward to returning to all canceled markets as soon as possible,” the pilots said in a statement.
