With millions of followers and a loyal fanbase, comedy group The Try Guys are well-known for their curiosity, humor and willingness to try anything under the sun, often with hilarious results. The four fearless best friends and business partners also love food and trying to cook new dishes with zero instruction and in the new one-hour series No-Recipe Road Trip with the Try Guys, they test their culinary instincts to recreate signature menu items in restaurants across the country – and the final dishes are all over the map. In each episode, the guys hit a new city and visit two local establishments where each must attempt to make the restaurant’s best-known dish with no recipe or instruction. In the end, the Try Guy with the most successful dish as determined by a local chef and guest judge wins and gets the chance to have their dish put on the restaurant’s menu. Kicking off in Nashville, the series also visits Los Angeles, Charleston, Atlanta and Santa Barbara. No-Recipe Road Trip with the Try Guys, starring Ned Fulmer, Keith Habersberger, Zach Kornfeld and Eugene Lee Yang, premieres Wednesday, August 31 at 10|9c and will stream on discovery+.

“The Try Guys believe taking risks and trying things outside of your comfort zone is a way of life – and we are thrilled to bring their irreverent sense of humor, culinary creativity and joy of food to our viewers,” said Jane Latman, President, Home & Food Content and Streaming, Warner Bros. Discovery.

"We're so excited for the world to see No Recipe-Road Trip! It's a wonderful blend of comedy and deliciousness that combines our passion for food and trying new things,” said the Try Guys. “Viewers will see all of our hilarious fails and at least a few stunning successes. We can't wait for everyone to see how much fun we had on the road and bring our unique brand of comedy and cooking to Food Network and discovery+.”

In the premiere episode, the Try Guys get a taste of Nashville, where they battle each other to see whose food hits the high notes and who falls flat, all under the watchful eye of guest judge Kalen Allen. First, they’ll unintentionally redefine dosas at Chaatable with Chef/Owner Maneet Chauhan. Then, they try their best not to spill any tiers making wedding cakes at Triple Crown Bakery, where they hope to make the menu of Chef/Owner Alena Vaughn. The trip then hits Los Angeles for tamale and donut battles; chicken wing and pizza making in Charleston; vegan burger and Thai noodles challenges in Atlanta and finally, a seafood showdown and croissant contest in Santa Barbara.
