Nafsika Antypas, the host and creator of A&E FYI Channel’s Plant-Based by Nafsika, recently announced plans for the production of season two of the vegan lifestyle show—the only one of its kind currently on television. The show—which first aired last July—reaches 70 million households every Wednesday and has covered vegan lifestyle topics including cooking demonstrations, celebrity interviews, cruelty-free fashion tips, and nutrition advice. Antypas independently funded the first season and has launched a crowdfunding campaign on platform Indiegogo to help with production costs of the show’s second season. “If I surpass my goal, I will then start working on bringing my show to more networks globally.” Antypas said. Several networks have taken a greater interest in vegan topics recently as evidenced by a recent episode of cooking competition show MasterChef Junior that challenged children to cook without animal products—at the behest of guest judge and vegan activist Mayim Bialik of 90s show Blossom fame.
