Fallen food TV star Paula Deen is launching her online network Wednesday at her official website, and to celebrate, she's bought the rights to all 440 episodes of her Food Network show Paula's Home Cooking. For Deen fans who want to watch reruns from the show's 13-year run, plus previously unaired footage, it'll require a $9.99-per-month subscription.
Or, for an annual $120 subscription, viewers will also be able to watch a "self-produced" documentary, which focuses on Deen's struggles since 2012.
"We feel like America needs to know the true story, and everything that happened," Ms. Deen said in a recent phone interview. "I'm bound by the courts, so I can only say so much. But there's nothing to stop others from talking about it."
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. In addition to the reruns and documentary, the network will feature a series of shows that follow day-specific themes like "Leftover Mondays" and "Taco Tuesdays." There will also be "lifestyle segments" that will include things like decorating tips for the holidays
