INSP Announces Premiere Date for
New Original Series State Plate


Press Release via INSP:

Hosted by Platinum Selling Artist and Popular American Idol® Winner, Taylor Hicks

Premieres Friday, October 21st at 9:00PM ET

(Indian Land, SC – July 19, 2016) – INSP has set the premiere date for its newest original series, State Plate. The culinary travel series, which is hosted by Taylor Hicks, will debut on the network on Friday, October 21st at 9:00PM ET. The announcement was made by Doug Butts, SVP of Programming at INSP.

In each episode of State Plate, Hicks goes on an unforgettable culinary tour across a particular state to assemble a plate of that state’s most emblematic foods. As he makes his way from coast to coast, Taylor will sample everything from crab cakes in Maryland; to peaches in Georgia; to chili in Texas; to potatoes in Idaho. In the process, he will visit farms, ranches, markets, festivals, and other diverse and unusual locales to uncover the rich details and history behind each state’s unique food traditions.

“When we made the announcement that we were greenlighting State Plate a few months ago, there was an overwhelmingly positive response on our social media platforms from our viewers,” said Butts. “In this series, Taylor brings us the stories of the people who grow, catch, raise, and make the food we eat every day. And who better to bring us their stories than Taylor Hicks? He’s funny, witty, engaging and, he’s a die-hard foodie who is also a restaurant owner. We are confident our viewers will thoroughly enjoy taking these journeys with Taylor”

State Plate is produced by RIVR Media. For additional information, please visit
