AMC’s upcoming restaurant drama Feed The Beast has a new premiere date. According to AMC’s webpage for the series, the first episode of the show will now debut on Sunday, June 5th at 10 p.m. instead of its original air date of Tuesday, May 31st.
In a move that will probably end up causing some confusion for people trying to watch Feed The Beast, the series will switch to airing on Tuesdays starting with its second episode and continue to do so for the rest of the season. Basically, the first episode will air on Sunday, June 5th, and then the second episode will air on Tuesday, June 7th with the subsequent episodes also airing on Tuesdays.
The reasoning behind the premiere change could be to try and have a strong lead-in from AMC’s upcoming, highly anticipated drama Preacher, which will air on Sundays starting May 22nd.
Feed The Beast, based on the Danish series Bankerot from Kim Fupz Aakeson and Malene Blenkov, stars David Schwimmer and Jim Sturgess as best friends attempting to open a restaurant together as they navigate the corruption, violence and drama of the New York restaurant world.
The series is written and executive produced by Clyde Phillips (Dexter, Nurse Jackie) who, according to Deadline, has described the show as being “about damaged people” and the “underbelly of trying to open a restaurant in the last frontier of New York City, which is the Bronx.”
