The singer-actress will headline the cooking series, where she will be putting her culinary skills to test with the help of a different master chef in each episode. The singer will also serve as executive producer on the show for streaming platform HBO Max.

The 10-episode series is inspired by Gomez’s kitchen adventures during the coronavirus pandemic.

“I’ve always been very vocal about my love of food. I think I’ve been asked hundreds of times in interviews if I had another career, what would I do and I’ve answered that it would be fun to be a chef,” said Gomez, adding: “I definitely don’t have the formal training though! Like many of us while being home I find myself cooking more and experimenting in the kitchen.”

HBO Max is set to launch May 27. It will feature many originals, and come with a wide library including “Friends”, “The Big Bang Theory”, “Game of Thrones” and “The Sopranos”.
