Paula Deen is going digital y'all.
In Sept. 2014, the 67-year-old Southern chef is launching the Paula Deen Network, "an interactive digital experience that will allow viewers to engage and access Paula and her Southern home cooking, anytime, anywhere--on computer, smartphone or tablet."
"I'm so excited about my new online network and can't wait to show everyone what we've been working on," Deen said of her new venture. "We're going to have so much fun being together and cooking up some wonderful new and classic dishes. ...I can't wait to crank up the oven and get cooking for the people I love: my family, my friends and my fans!"
So, why the web? Paula Deen Ventures CEO Steven Nanula explains, "With 4.2 million fans on Facebook and 1.24 million followers on Twitter, it was clear to us that an interactive digital network was the way to go."
Deen's longtime producer Gordon Elliott adds, "She was always bigger than a 30-minute television show and now she has the perfect medium to share her cooking, her personality and her life with fans anytime they want to watch. Whether it's a quick delicious dinner or a family feast with games and guests, she can do it all -- when and how her fans want it."
