Another week, another YouTube original channel launch.
Uncommon Content on Thursday launched the Reserve Channel on YouTube, which is aimed at the upscale insider crowd that might want to better get to know the tastes and interests of, say, Mario Batali.
Incidentally, Batali will be one of the guests on a new cooking show from celebrity chef Eric Ripert called “On the Table,” which focuses on Ripert’s closest friends and their favorite food and drink. Each episode will be a conversation and cooking collaboration between Ripert and his guest in a kitchen. The first “On the Table” guest is Anthony Bourdain, followed by Batali and actor Stanley Tucci.
Other Reserve Channel shows launching Thursday include a health and wellness program called “Be Well Week, Be Well Weekend” with health guru Dr. Frank Lipman, “Capture,” a look at the stories behind famous photos taken by celebrity photographer Mark Seliger and his photographer buddies, and “Ex-Pats,” a series about the lives of people who have chosen to live in a foreign country, hosted by Jimmy Buffett’s daughter, Savannah Jane Buffett.
