Details are a little scarce -- the network might not have been quite ready for the news to break -- but based on Roy's social media message, the show will apparently be called Street Food. That seems pretty appropriate.

Roy announced the show over the weekend on Twitter:

It looks like Roy's collaborating again with director/actor Jon Favreau, who he worked with on the culinary-themed feature film Chef. Here he is on Vine, rocking a knife:

Looks like they're shooting now, so it might be a little while before the show hits the air, but I'm down.

You could say things are pretty hot right now for Roy, who also opened yet another new restaurant, the "vegetable-focused" Commissary, in Los Angeles last week. Looking forward to chowing down.
