Food Network has greenlit a sequel of Restaurant Hustle 2020: All on the Line, which premiered to rave reviews at the 2020 DOC NYC film festival. The film received acclaim for its raw, intimate chronicling of how chefs/restaurateurs Marcus Samuelsson, Christian Petroni, Antonia Lofaso, and Maneet Chauhan navigated the unimaginable challenges their restaurants faced from the beginning of the pandemic through the end of 2020.
The Emmy Award-winning Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives tandem of Guy Fieri and Frank Matson, Founder/Executive Producer of Citizen Pictures, co-directed the documentary. The new documentary picks up with the same four chefs in January 2021 and follows them as they struggle to get back to a full house again.
“With Restaurant Hustle 2020, viewers witnessed the journey of these four courageous chefs as they struggled to keep their businesses afloat from the beginning of the pandemic. In 2021, they’re facing a whole new set of struggles and Guy and I are grateful to Food Network for giving us the opportunity to continue telling their stories,” said Matson.
Restaurant Hustle 2020: All on the Line is now streaming on Discovery+.
