Omnivore will be narrated by Redzepi, of Noma, Copenhagen, which is currently at number one on the World’s 50 Best Restaurants list.
Each episode will take viewers to destinations around the world, exploring different ingredients that have "built societies, shaped spirituality, and forever altered the human story”.
Omnivore was developed by Redzepi, Fukunaga, and James Beard & Emmy Award-winner Matt Goulding, of Roads & Kingdoms.
