The FYI Network is hoping to turn an Instagram phenomenon into a TV show viewers will be salivating over with their new series appropriately titled Food Porn.

Food Porn will follow Michael Chernow, owner of New York's famous restaurant chain the Meatball Shop, on a nationwide quest for the most pornographic #FoodPorn dishes in real life — basically the American dream reincarnated. The show kicks off Thursday on FYI at 9 p.m. Eastern. Bethenny Frankel of Real Housewives will executive produce the show.
