UnchainedTV Set to Stream PEELED™ as the Trailblazing, All-Vegan Cooking Competition Show Debuts with a Red-Carpet Premiere at the DGA on 9/24/22  

Hollywood, CA. - September 8, 2022 - UnchainedTV, the transformative new streaming platform, announced today that it will carry the very first streaming of Vkind Studios’ trailblazing new, all-vegan cooking competition show titled PEELED™. The streaming debut will take place concurrently with the Premiere Screening at the Directors Guild of America (DGA) on September 24th. 
UnchainedTV will also stream highlights from the star-studded, Red Carpet Premiere event, including step and repeat fanfare and vegan samplings prepared by PEELED™’s chef contestants and a post-screening Q&A with show producers. 
“We are excited to make history as the first platform streaming Peeled,” said Jane Velez-Mitchell, Founder/CEO of UnchainedTV. “The show advances interest in compassionate, healthy, low-carbon-footprint lifestyle choices, which our audiences will appreciate.”
The debut streaming will feature all three episodes of the initial limited series, which producers anticipate are the first of many. Four talented vegan chefs cook to raise money for worthy causes while competing to impress four discerning celebrity judges without being “Peeled” to the compost. In the end, only one will be named “Hottest Vegan Chef” and win a chance to have their winning dessert featured by the international vegan restaurant chain, The Copper Branch. (
Leading the panel of celebrity judges is Chef Josie Clemens, whose experience being the first vegan chef to compete in the hit series “Hell’s Kitchen” influenced her decision to co-create the show. Other judges include Chef Chris “Southern Baker with a Twist” Tucker, Sophie’s Kitchen founder Dr. Miles Woodruff and Plant-based Business Hour host Elysabeth Alfano. Two vivacious hosts, celebrity chef Babette Davis and Dr. Shabnam Islam, guide contestants throughout the competition. 
Created by vegan advocate and Vkind founder Star Simmons, PEELED™ was conceived to meet the demand for cooking shows that feature innovative, Michelin-worthy, plant-based cuisine. The show is the first of its kind to embody vegan principles both on screen and behind the scenes, with an all-vegan cast, producers and creative team.
“Sophisticated culinary arts can also be compassionate and climate-friendly,” says Velez-Mitchell, adding, “I started UnchainedTV to reach the many millions of people out there who are desperately looking for ways to be part of the solution to save the planet. Peeled is precisely the kind of smart entertainment they want.”
PEELED™ Red Carpet Premiere begins at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 24th at the Director’s Guild of America in Los Angeles, CA at 7920 Sunset Blvd. Limited VIP tickets to attend the screening can be found at UnchainedTV streaming will be available to stream by 6:00 p.m., PST.
