Shot in Hamlin’s home kitchen, the 30-minute cooking show is a unique combination of cooking, dinner party, and documentary … all with a dash of comedy and ‘feels’ along the way. It arrives just in time for the holidays as the duo prepares a festive meal, putting their own spin on classic beef bourguignon, and celebrates the labor of love that is holiday cooking. They’ll be joined by close family and friends, including Hamlin’s wife, actress Lisa Rinna, saxophone legend Kenny G, Hamlin’s daughter model, Delilah Hamlin, Hamlin’s son model and actor, Dimitri Hamlin and others.

“I’m passionate about a lot of things… acting, non-radioactive fusion energy, Lisa Rinna’s lips, and of course, my Bolognese sauce! But, the golden thread woven through them all is family which is why I’m so excited to partner with my immensely talented chef, author, entrepreneur niece, Renee Guilbault, on ‘In the Kitchen with Harry Hamlin,’” says host and executive producer, Harry Hamlin. “Each episode will invite viewers into our culinary happy place… the kitchen… where we’ll host a bunch of guests from across the pop culture spectrum beginning with sharing traditions from our own family for the holiday-themed premiere episode. Join us as we go beyond Santa’s usual plate of cookies to create a fun-filled, delicious, and heart-warming seasonal experience.”
