NEW YORK, May 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Everyday Health, Inc., the leader in multi-platform content focused on health and wellness proves healthy entertainment is truly engaging audiences as its syndicated television shows, Recipe Rehab and Everyday Health, received nominations for the 40th Annual Daytime Entertainment Emmy® Awards as announced Wednesday by the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS). Both programs are in excellent company alongside programs from Food Network and PBS. Winners will be announced at the Awards ceremony to be held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on June 14 and will be telecast on the Turner Broadcast Networks, HLN on Sunday, June 16.
Everyday Health's YouTube series turned syndicated program, Recipe Rehab, is honored in the Outstanding Culinary Program category alongside four Food Network programs: Best Thing I've Ever Made, Bobby Flay's Barbecue Addiction, Giada At Home, and Trisha's Southern Kitchen. Nominated for the second time – the 2012 nomination marked the first time a TV series inspired and produced by a digital company has earned this prestigious honor – for Outstanding Children's Series alongside a PBS program and two HUB programs, Everyday Health averaged one million viewers per episode on ABC stations.
"At Everyday Health, we have an unwavering commitment to making original healthy content accessible to families anywhere, anytime decisions are being made," said Mike Keriakos, President and Co-Founder, Everyday Health. "We appreciate the industry recognition for our namesake series, Everyday Health, and Recipe Rehab—one of the best rated healthy cooking shows to date."
Co-produced by Everyday Health and Trium, a global independent multi-platform production company, Recipe Rehab reigns as the first series to launch from a YouTube Original Channel to broadcast television. In each 30-minute episode, airing Saturdays on ABC stations in 95 percent of the country as part of Litton's Weekend Adventure, Danny Boome hosts two renowned chefs through a recipe recreation during which they transform a family's favorite decadent dish into a more healthful version. Chefs such as Spike Mendelsohn, Govind Armstrong, and Candice Kumai each create their interpretation of the dish, slashing fat, sodium, and calories in the process. After weighing the healthiness, skill level, and flavor of the chef's dishes, the family becomes the judge and declares which rehabbed dish wins.
The show's new cookbook, RECIPE REHAB: 80 Delicious Recipes That Slash the Fat, Not the Flavor, will be released by HarperWave, a division of HarperCollins, on May 14 featuring 80 recipes that transform nutritional nightmares into healthy and delicious weeknight meals. Show content and recipes can be accessed at RecipeRehab.com.
"The larger take-away message from the show's success and industry recognition is that health oriented programming has a firm place in the broadcast landscape," said Recipe Rehab Executive Producer Mark Koops of Trium, the former Executive Producer of The Biggest Loser. "We hope that it's just the beginning in terms of providing families across America everyday solutions and be a real voice in combatting the health crisis this country is facing."
