In the last decade or so, drugs have been on cable a lot, whether it’s the A&E show Intervention, Breaking Bad, or the new mini-series Snowfall, which deals with the rise of crack cocaine.
Now Deadline reports that ITV is developing a two-hour docuseries, which is tentatively titled Gordon Ramsay’s Gordon on Cocaine. Yes, the infamously volatile chef is working on a series about the dangers of cocaine addiction.
Proving that addiction happens in all walks of life, Ramsay has seen cocaine destroy people’s lives in the restaurant business, and one of his closest friends and protégésdied from the drug in 2003.
As Ramsay told Deadline, I’ve wanted to understand the world of cocaine ever since I lost one of my chefs at my flagship restaurant in Chelsea and I wanted to learn why it’s becoming such an epidemic not just globally but specifically in the culinary world. Understanding and seeing how it’s made, transported, distributed, abused and prevented, has opened my eyes to the dreadfully dark side of cocaine that is simply not talked about and shown me it’s far from glamorous and harmless…I dare anyone to watch this series and not think again about taking cocaine.”
