Jamie is out in the United States this autumn making his next prime time series for American TV on ABC. It's set in the lovely town of Huntington, West Virginia, which has been called the unhealthiest city in America. But frankly, Huntington has the same kind of problems with bad health, obesity and diet that people have all over the United States, and back home in the UK.
Jamie wants to take a look at what kids are eating at school and what families are eating at home. His big challenge will be getting the whole community to rally together and be able to cook with fresh ingredients. He's seen how, with a little bit of confidence, people can quickly start to change the way they eat and live.

New leadership at the Los Angeles Unified School District sparks hope for the Revolution. Jamie is invited to meet with John Deasy, the incoming superintendent, and is heartened by developments. Meanwhile, Jamie also puts together a cooking competition with high school students who will be mentored by notable chefs, including himself, as well as Joseph Gillard, Eric Greenspan, Ben Ford, Evan Funke, Seth Greenburg, Amy Pressman and Suzanne Tracht, while the results are judged by Jonathan Waxman and Michael Symon. The winners' school will receive an amazing prize package presented by Jamie Lee Curtis. And Jamie revisits West Adams School to see how the seeds of change have literally sprouted into the school garden.
