Young & Hungry is an American sitcom created by David Holden and based upon the life of San Francisco food blogger Gabi Moskowitz which follows a well-off young tech entrepreneur who hires a feisty young food blogger to be his personal chef despite the misgivings of his personal aide, who would prefer a celebrity chef for the job instead.
In Young & Hungry, two worlds collide when Josh (Jonathan Sadowski), a wealthy young tech entrepreneur, meets Gabi (Emily Osment), a feisty young food blogger, looking to be his personal chef.
Gabi is desperate for the job and must prove herself, mostly to Josh's aide (Rex Lee), who prefers a famous chef for the job. When Josh enlists Gabi to prepare a romantic meal for him and his girlfriend, the dinner goes awry and Gabi finds herself in a very awkward position.
With the help of her best friend Sofia (Aimee Carrero) and Josh's housekeeper (Kym Whitley), Gabi turns a difficult situation into an opportunity for employment and maybe even love.
Young & Hungry stars Emily Osment (Hannah Montana), Jonathan Sadowski ($#*! My Dad Says), Rex Lee (Entourage), Aimee Carrero (Blue Lagoon: The Awakening) and Kym Whitley (Animal Practice) with Annie Potts (GCB, Designing Women) as a recurring guest star.
The series is executive produced by Eric Tannenbaum and Kim Tannenbaum (Two and a Half Men), CBS Television Studios, Relativity Television, Jessica Rhoades (Sharpay's Fabulous Adventure) and Ashley Tisdale (High School Musical). The pilot was written by David Holden (Accidentally on Purpose).
Gabi Moskowitz, a San Francisco based food blogger, of BrokeAssGourmet.com, contributed to the development of this project.
