New Jamie Oliver series on A

The channel welcomes the British celebrity chef as he tackles the eating habits of obese America in a new series starting March 26.

Jamie Oliver is looking to stage a food revolution, and it will soon be coming to Canada on CTV’s A channel.

Starting Friday, March 26 at 9 p.m., Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution finds the British chef in Huntington, West Virginia, which is supposedly the unhealthiest city in America. The series premiered on ABC on Sunday night, with Oliver’s first attempts at trying to change Virginians eating habits. Media reports pegged the show’s audience at 6.2 million, considered a not-so-hot debut for the show.

This is Oliver’s first foray into US television. American Idol host and West Coast radio personality Ryan Seacrest is executive producer.

A channel will be promoting the 60-minute episodes with on-air promos.
