The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a massive loss of jobs across the nation. One of the sectors that faced a significant disruption because of the health crisis was the restaurant industry.

Many organizations had to shut down, leading to their employees being without a job. Amid the struggle, some establishments managed to keep their companies afloat and engage their workers.

Fieri's documentary is aimed at highlighting the challenges the industry has faced this year with its focus on four chefs— Antonia Lofaso, Maneet Chauhan, Samuelsson, and Christian Petroni,

One of the chefs, Lofaso, revealed in the documentary clip that she had spent more than a decade building her career only for it to get torn in a week. Fieri, who serves as a co-director and executive producer, said in a statement:

"I've traveled coast to coast visiting thousands of restaurants across the country [...] and after all the time on the road, it's clear that restaurants are the heart and soul..."

Speaking about the project in an interview, Fieri confessed that making the documentary wasn't easy. He admitted it was difficult watching colleagues he respected go through such struggles in their businesses without being able to help them.

Despite the hope of a vaccine, Samuelsson noted it was a long road of recovery before restaurants could return to the norm. Nevertheless, they want restauranteurs worldwide to collectively come together through the documentary and heal.

It is set to premiere on December 27 on Food Network. The news of the documentary comes after it was announced that restaurants, pubs, and hairdressers in the Republic of Ireland had been instructed to shut down on Christmas Eve.

The new protocols were set up after Irish Prime Minister Micheál Martin disclosed that the novel coronavirus was increasing at a rate of 10% daily. Back in May, Fieri made headlines when he lent a helping hand to restauranteurs.

Via a partnership with the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation, the Food Network star raised more than $20 million for the Restaurant Employee Relief Fund to help workers out of a job.
