You know you’ve arrived when your website and cookbook inspire a new TV show about your life and writing. That’s exactly what happened to Gabi Moskowitz, the creator of Brokeass Gourmet. In early 2011 the Creative Artists Agency approached her about turning her life and writing into a show – and three years later the show is launching!
Called “Young & Hungry” the season one premiere pilot airs on Wednesday, June 25 on ABC Family. Members of the ensemble cast include Emily Osment (Disney’s “Hannah Montana”) who plays Gabi, Jonathan Sadowski (“She’s The Man”), Rex Lee (HBO’s “Entourage”), Aimee Carrero (Cartoon Network’s “Level Up”) and Kym Whitley (OWN’s “Raising Whitley”).
Set in San Francisco (where Gabi also lives IRL) the plot is roughly this: Gabi (Emily Osment) is hired by a young entrepreneur turned millionaire named Josh Kaminski (Jonathan Sadowski) and has to prove herself in the world of dot com zillionaires and celebrity chefs. You can read more about the show on ABC Family– and Gabi’s account of how it all happened is also a fun read.
Check out the show preview below and tune in the pilot on June 25 8:00/7:00 Central on ABC Family.
