Anthony Anderson and Cedric the Entertainer Are the Kings of BBQ in New Series Forthcoming on A&E

Cedric the Entertainer goes from Kings of Comedy to Kings of BBQ and he is bringing fellow comedian Anthony Anderson with him.

This week, A&E Network has announced that a new series starring Cedric and Anderson will be taking place on their network. The working title of the series is Kings of BBQ and it is slated to air for ten episodes. The two will bring their black-ish ways of barbequing to The Neighborhood as the duo take their love of barbeque to the next level as they work hand in hand to start their own barbeque brand, AC Barbeque. 

“Anthony and I are very excited to take our audience into the savory, smokehouse-filled, finger-licking world of barbeque all across the United States,” says Cedric The Entertainer in a written statement. “In collaboration with A&E, we created the ‘Kings of BBQ’ series as a perfect way to share our new business venture, AC Barbeque, with all of you.”

They will be filming the adventures of starting a new business as Cedric and Anderson venture out to perfect the brand while learning all they can about the art form when it comes to the BBQ. The two friends head out on a culinary journey to find the best techniques, flavors, and traditions for “mouthwatering barbeque across America.”

“I’m thrilled to partner with A&E on this series to honor the traditions and flavors of barbeque that have been a big part of my life for as long as I can remember,” said Anderson. “The launch of AC Barbeque has been a lifelong dream for Cedric and I and we cannot wait to learn more about the craft and share our journey.”

The episodes of Kings of BBQ will follow the two comedians as they go out and meet with barbeque chefs, pitmasters, and people who are experts in the field as they share their knowledge and secrets of the trade. Along the way, Cedric and Anderson will also be highlighting Black Excellence in the industry.

The pair are also executive producers for Kings of BBQ. Cedric The Entertainer and Eric C. Rhone for A Bird And A Bear Entertainment. Anthony Anderson and E. Brian Dobbins for their company, Just a Kid From Compton.
