The first trailer for chef Masaharu Morimoto’s sushi competition show “Morimoto’s Sushi Master” has dropped.
Best known as one of the original Iron Chefs, Morimoto will serve as a judge on the show, which will purportedly be the first cooking competition TV series exclusively focused on sushi.
Presented on the Roku Channel, “Morimoto’s Sushi Master” will run for six episodes and feature eight chefs from around the country in a series of challenges ranging from whole fish butchery to handling conveyor-belt-style sushi service, known as kaitenzushi.
The victor will win a cash prize of $25,000.
Joining Morimoto as judges are cookbook author and content creator Kenji Lopez-Alt and chef Dakota Weiss.
The series is hosted by Marvel’s “Runaways” star Lyrica Okano.
Competing chefs include Eric LeVine, Venoy Rogers III, John Sugimura, Frances Tariga, “Hell’s Kitchen” and “MasterChef” alum Lauren Lawless, Michael Collantes, Debbie Lee and Jason Minoda.
“Morimoto’s Sushi Master” will be available to stream on Roku on June 16. Check out the trailer below:
