"Eric Greenspan Is Hungry" is a reality series on National Geographic Channel featuring the titular chef who is, without a doubt, one of the funniest, loudest, most innovative chefs on the planet. But there's really only one thing you need to know about Eric: He's no vegetarian.

Eric and his trusted friend and carnivorous gastronome, Captain Mauzner, travel on the meatiest road trip, discovering Americana through rare homegrown family recipes, to satisfy their wildest imaginations and to get inspiration for Eric's critically acclaimed restaurants in Los Angeles.

The series takes viewers on a cross-country, off-the-beaten-path adventure, looking for wild hog in Warren, Arkansas, for wild turkey in Tunica, Mississippi, for Buffalo in Jasper, Arkansas, and for goat in Grand Coteau, Louisiana, just to mention a few of his stops. Traveling in the heartland, Eric goes directly to the source of local recipes to meet the people who farm, raise, nurture, hunt and butcher animals such as bison, prehistoric gar, goat, crawfish, pig and wild turkey. It's meat unlike what you get from a purveyor. Eric and his cohort will break down the animal, butcher it and prepare the recipe all on location to crank out the best dishes imaginable.

Journey with Eric and Mauzner as they get deep into the rich history of these family recipes — the meaty goodness — waiting to be discovered in America. The homegrown, mouthwatering recipes — whole roasted goat flambéed with sugarcane vinegar, "bang-bang" turkey, bacon-wrapped gar balls, whole smoked hog with "squealer dust" rub — will be sure to leave viewers hungry and wanting more. Never far from one another, Eric and Mauzner like to call their time together "an orgy of food and drink," and are content to wine and dine their way to happiness and hedonism.
