“Double Dare,” Food Network Star Marc Summers Talks with Entertainment Heavy Hitters in Revealing New Podcast

Press Release · Los Angeles, CA, USA ·

Marc Summers has built a remarkable career as the quintessential American television host. From “Double Dare” to “Unwrapped,” with scores of additional credits, Summers has seen and been through it all. One of the lucky few not to be pigeon-holed into one area, Summers is thrilled with the many types of programs he has been able to host, produce and create. Now he’s ready to expand his hosting skills into the world of podcasts in his new show, Marc Summers Unwraps.

Launching Feb. 13, 2023, the show will be available on Apple, Spotify or wherever you get your podcasts. Produced by Believe Limited, the podcast will feature candid, honest and often humorous conversations with Summers and his friends and fellow entertainment heavy hitters, going deep into the major challenges and milestone decisions that have led to each of their unparalleled careers in "the biz.” “I never want it to be about me, I want it to be about the person sitting on the other side of the table, cause I figure I can learn from them,” said Summers.

On the first episode, Summers talks with acclaimed actor/singer Anthony Ramos, Emmy-nominated for Best Supporting Actor (Limited or Anthology Series or Movie) for “Hamilton,” and a Golden Globe nominee for Best Actor (Motion Picture - Musical or Comedy) for “In the Heights.” They discuss keeping faith in pursuit of achieving your dreams, colorblind casting in Hollywood and reconnecting with family - despite turbulent years.
