Plot Synopsis

SOMEBODY FEED PHIL is a one-hour docuseries that follows Phil Rosenthal, the creator of EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND, as he takes viewers on a goodwill eating tour of the world, visiting a different city in each episode. Along for the ride are his friends, family and his trademark sense of humor. Phil's journey in Season 1 starts in Bangkok, where he tours a floating market by boat, samples the world's best street food in Chinatown and takes on a 25-course tasting menu with a futuristic twist. Then, Phil travels to Saigon, kicking off his visit with pho and banh mi; then, Phil gets up at dawn to harvest lotus stems and learns how real Vietnamese coffee is made. On his third stop, Tel Aviv, Phil reconnects with old friends over shakshuka, visits a synagogue-themed hummus shop and meets "the princess of soup." Continuing his trip to Lisbon, Phil savors the city's famed pasteis de nata tarts, tours the city in a motorcycle sidecar and dines with a chef at his Michelin-starred restaurant. Then it's on to New Orleans, where Phil learns how to eat crawfish, goes hog-wild at a butcher shop and meets up with friends for a Monday night tradition: red beans and rice. Phil's journey ends in Mexico City, where, after a mezcal-soaked meal, he tries his hand at tortilla making and introduces a stranger to the wonders of tacos al pastor.

Phil's adventures start in Italy, where he devours a sublime pork chop, pilots a gondola, dines with a famous chef, and marvels over gelato, aged cheese and balsamic vinegar. Then in Ireland, with wife Monica along to trace her Irish roots, Phil feasts on boxty and seaweed, warily plays beekeeper, and learns how to pour and drink Guinness. Next, Argentina delights Phil as he swoons over dulce de leche delicacies, wild boar choripan and divine cuts of beef. Bonus: He tangos and rides a horse. Traveling to Copenhagen, Phil relishes new interpretations of Nordic classics such as smorrebrod and frikadeller before joining his family for fun and games at Tivoli Gardens. In his penultimate stop, Cape Town, Phil gamely tries ostrich and antelope, eats with Nelson Mandela's grandson, tucks into BBQ and a family meal, and taste-tests coffee and flowers. Then, Phil ends his trip in New York City with steak, pizza, hot dogs, egg creams, and more.
