From a media release:


Who has the best fast food in your town? Time to find out. Working with Calgary’s Pyramid Productions, CMT (Canada) has commissioned three new partner series — Burger Wars, Taco Wars and Pizza Wars. Slated to air on the network in 2013, the series touches down in Vancouver, Toronto, Phoenix, Los Angeles, Chicago, Calgary and Las Vegas and features five Burger Wars episodes, five Taco Wars episodes and four Pizza Wars episodes.

In each episode, host Cris Nannarone, a veteran road warrior and standup comedian, scours restaurants, diners, food trucks and everything in between, to find the best burger, pizza or taco. It’s a quest to find the top three contenders who will ultimately go to battle. Nannarone learns their trade secrets and discovers if their dish has what it takes to win the war.

“It’s a dream job,” says Cris Nannarone. “I mean, think about it. I get to eat my way across the continent.”

Filming of the series starts in Los Angeles this December, where Cris will begin with a search for the best burger in Hollywood.

  5. The host, Cris, has got to be the most annoying T.V. Personality I ever had to bear to watch. He’s a stand up comedien?
    Sure buds! Most people on the show seem to avoid engaging him for fear of awkwardness.
    Right on buddy!
    Keep making people feel uncomfortable.

Leave a reply, eh?
