EXCLUSIVE: Paula Deen Announces Launch Date of New Network


Paula Deen took ET on an exclusive tour of her new set and filled us in on when her new network will debut.

September 24 is the premiere date for Paula's network, which will be 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."

"As people's time becomes more fragmented and they can't sit down in front of TVs, that time that they choose to get what Paula has to offer is even better," said executive producer Gordon Elliott.

Backed by a reported $100 million private equity investment, Paula turned her former Savannah, Georgia home into a studio.

"I have to be careful that I don't do that or do this, because everywhere I turn there's a camera," said Paula. "I can't get away from them."

Fans (or as Paula calls them, "friends she hasn't met yet") can already sign up for the site at PaulaDeen.com, where she's offering a whole slew of goodies!
