Original Netflix Documentary Series… Rotten
Local farming is fading as profit margins decide what food makes it to our plates. The new Netflix documentary series Rotten exposes the fraud, corruption, and the consequences on our health of today’s global food industry. Nobody’s hands are clean.
“New York City-based production company Zero Point Zero has been behind a number of popular food-oriented television shows including both Anthony Bourdain’s No Reservations and Parts Unknown as well as The Mind of a Chef—series that have celebrated culinary experiences. But for its latest project, Rotten, as the name implies, the production house has taken a much different approach, diving instead into the food world’s seedy underbelly. “The truth is hard to swallow,” the tagline states.
Set to debut on Netflix on January 5, Rotten is described as giving food “the true crime treatment, diving deep into the food production underworld to expose the corruption, waste and real dangers behind your everyday eating habits. In a world where huge global supply-chains are increasingly intertwined and consolidated, this series starts on your dinner plate… and follows the money to the shocking consequences—intended or not—of regulation, innovation and greed.” – Mike Pomranz, Food & Wine.com
