Run DMC Frontman to Star in Cooking Series
NEW YORK (PRNewswire) — Iconic musician and seminal hip-hop front man of Run-D.M.C, Rev Run, stars in the new Cooking Channel series Rev Run's Sunday Suppers, premiering Sunday, June 8 at 10 p.m. ET/7:00 p.m. PT. Exemplary father of six, Rev Run finds his true joy in family, good friends, and great food. But with some of their children off on their own, Rev and his wife Justine have a near empty house and long for the days of a full table. Determined to get the family back together for weekly Sunday dinners, they will use simple, heartfelt recipes to lure the kids back to the house for the Sunday tradition. From Justine's Famous Lasagna, to Rev's BBQ, each episode will unveil a new recipe to be shared with both new and old guests. Over six episodes, Rev and Justine will show that the perfect family meal isn't just about the food, it's about who is sitting at the table to share it!
"Rev Run is not only a legendary musician and pop-culture icon, but also a dynamic lifestyle figure with his love for home renovation and keen fashion sense," said Michael Smith, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Cooking Channel. "Rev's belief in family, and the simple traditions that go along with it, make him a great addition to the Cooking Channel family."
In the premiere episode Justine invites her parents over for Sunday supper. After a week of eating all of his veggies, Justine grants Rev a cheat day but Rev isn't sure what he will choose to go with the loaf of homemade bread that Justine's father brings. Taking some time to think about it, Rev finally decides on Justine's Famous Lasagna. But first, Justine enlists daughter Miley to both help and learn the family recipe in an effort to pass it on for years to come. Witness fun, food and family at Rev's house from Sunday to Sunday, including breakfast for dinner with chicken and waffles, a Sunday vegetarian sit-down with veggie tacos, and a visit from the Simmon's family food police!
