If you cringe when you see people’s impeccably lit brunch photos in your Instagram feed, the new TV show Food Porn will likely make your fists clench. 

Its existence, however, proves that there are actually people who would watch this show, which will be executive-produced by former Real Housewives star Bethenny Frankel. The show’s 14-episode run was announced during this week’s Upfronts as part of lifestyle channel FYI’s programming slate. 

NYC restaurant owner Michael Chernow will host the show, traveling “across the U.S. to meet today’s tastemakers—the everyday people behind the delicious online posts—and discover what made the meal so distinctive and worthy to share online. The series will also go beyond just the photo, as Michael will meet with the chefs and restaurants responsible for creating the dishes to find out what’s in them and why they are insanely popular.” 

Frankel remarked, “I am excited to be a part of a series that will showcase the decadence and obsession people have with sharing their food online.” And there’s some actual science behind why people are so obsessed with looking at and posting those photos. 

FYI also just greenlit a new show about spouse-swapping.
