The recently launched Discovery+ streaming service is rolling out original content, and coming soon is Luda Can’t Cook. The cooking original follows Ludacris– franchise star and a self-admitted terrible home cook–whose endgame is to be able to make an edible dinner for his mother. Is there anything more wholesome than that?
Premiering on Discovery+ on February 25, Chris Bridges–also known as Ludacris–will star on the one-hour long special. He can’t cook, and he’ll be the first one to tell you that. “I have a wife, and she does all the cooking, which is part of the reason I can’t cook because I’m lazy and whenever I’m hungry, I want to eat,” Ludacris said during a panel at the TCA winter press tour. “I don’t want to cook. It’s a timing thing because I’m so busy. My kitchen is pretty fully equipped. I just rely on her to cook everything.”
That doesn’t mean Ludacris hasn’t tried to cook in the past. “I don’t even know how to cook rice,” he admitted. “I’m gonna be honest with you guys, like if I tried to put some rice in there, it’s gonna stick to the pot.”
