Actor Isaiah Washington, who formerly starred in Grey’s Anatomy, is bringing a new travel-cooking show to your television screens.
Washington will host the new cooking show, which is currently untitled, for Fox Nation, Fox News’ streaming service, according to TheWrap.
The show format will feature Washington traveling across America to cook with celebrities and ordinary folk right inside their kitchens. As they cook and dine, Washington and his guests are expected to talk about 2020 presidential politics and other hot-button news stories.
The show came about after Washington approached Fox Nation about an “idea for a talk show,” according to TheWrap.

That Fox’s streaming service is running the show is interesting considering Washington has been vocal in the past in his criticism of police brutality and he has blamed police brutality on “America’s broken judicial system that is oppressing” people of color, TheWrap reported.
These aren’t exactly issues that Fox News traditionally embraces.
In 2007, Washington was ousted from Grey’s Anatomy after directing a gay slur at a castmate. He later apologized and has backed many LGBT issues since that time. For example, he helped to get Blackbird, a feature film about a boy who struggles with his sexual identity in Mississippi, made.
