Pilgrim Media Group and Craig Piligian are excited to announce that we have teamed up with oscar-winning director Roger Ross Williams (Music by Prudence) to produce High on the Hog, a docuseries chronicling African American history through the lens of food. The series, which is based on the book High on the Hog: A Culinary Journey from Africa to America by Dr. Jessica B. Harris, will also be produced by Karis Jagger and Fabienne Toback who initially optioned the book.
“All of us at Pilgrim are honored to work with Roger Ross Williams, whose artistry and vision will bring to this series the depth and gravitas it warrants; and Karis and Fabienne, who embody the spirit of this inspiring project. We are eager to share our collaborative creative with the marketplace,” said Piligian about the project.
