Plot Synopsis

From chef David Chang and documentary filmmaker Morgan Neville, THE NEXT THING YOU EAT is a six-episode docuseries that explores the seismic changes happening all around us and what they mean for the way we'll eat in the future. Chang and a diverse cast of characters -- including "Los Angeles Times" food columnist Gustavo Arellano and "New York Times" food reporter Priya Krishna -- dive headfirst into what lies ahead, including everything from robots, to lab-grown fish, to insect farms, to artificial intelligence calling all the shots. All six episodes of THE NEXT THING YOU EAT drop on Thursday, October 21, 2021 on Hulu:

"Delivery: Rise of the Machines": You'll be able to eat anything you want, wherever you are... for a price. Robot pizza. Drone delivery. Technology is coming for the restaurant industry, but what's the cost of convenience? Featuring: Anderson .Paak, Nyesha Arrington.

"Burgers: Balanced Diet": The burger will never die. Long live the burger! But the proliferation of cheap meat has thrown our environment out of balance. What does the next burger you eat look like? Featuring: Priya Krishna, Gustavo Arellano, and a bunch of cows.

"Restaurants: A Reckoning": COVID accelerated an upheaval that was a long time coming for the restaurant industry. So what comes next? And will the future be more equitable for all? Featuring: Kwame Onwuachi, Helen Rosner, Corey Lee.

"Breakfast: An illusion of Choice": Big Breakfast is pulling the strings on what we eat for the most important meal of the day, from coffee to Captain Crunch. The future of breakfast needs to embrace diversity and optimization. Featuring: Candace Parker, Osayi Endolyn, David Choe.

"Sushi: Say Goodbye": So much of what we know about sushi is a lie -- and it's causing us to destroy this beloved food. How do we change our eating habits in order for sushi to survive? Featuring: Wesley Morris, Masuhiro Yamamoto, Yumi Chiba.

"2050: Look Ahead": Pop culture loves to imagine the future of food, but it rarely gets it right. What will life be like in 2050? We'll probably have a lot more sporks but will fast food take over? Will food be gross, or delicious? Featuring: Eddie Huang, Jonathan Nolan, Lisa Joy
