Rive Gauche To Debut (13x30) Series At MIPCOM 2013
The 13-episode series will see Canadian musician, and former Barenaked Lady, Steven Page tread into shadowy culinary locales in New Orleans, Atlanta, Mississippi, Los Angeles and Chicago, as well as a Canadian jaunt through Ottawa and Toronto.
Page will guide viewers into the alternative food scenes of various cities, where underground eateries skirt the rules to offer specialty delicacies, and illicit restaurants serve the goods without oversight or advertisement. Sometimes it’s Korean cuisine sold directly from an elderly woman’s kitchen, or a well-regarded local chef having a one-night stand cooking an ambitious array of dishes at an unlicensed “pop-up” supper club. There’s a whole uncharted gastronomical world out there to explore! Although these eateries are unlawful, Page loves "the fact that there is this labyrinthine effort that [chefs] have to make in order to make their products. That’s really the essence of it. It’s about the quest for real food and, unfortunately, it’s pushed underground sometimes.”
Naturally, as a professional musician, Page will play a role in the sound of the show. He penned the theme song and will help select the incidental music for each episode, hoping to include indie music from each city to underscore the underground theme of the show.
