What do you get when you pair a modern girl from the streets of Queens with a food purist from the hills of Tuscany? A modern day Lucy and Ricky with a passion for food, family and each other.

Actress Debi Mazar and her husband Gabriele Corcos invite you into their kitchen in the new series Extra Virgin, premiering Wednesday, January 19th.

Mazar is most recently known for her role as Adrian Grenier's character's publicist, Shauna, on Entourage (but if you haven't seen her role in Martin Scorsese's Goodfellas, you're missing out!).

Debi Mazar and Gabriele Corcos from Extra Virgin

Gabriele Corcos is a musician by trade and cook by nature. He was born in Florence, Italy, where his grandmother and mother taught him everything he knows about Tuscan food and traditional farmer’s cuisine. He has an insatiable fascination with food, a love for organic ingredients and a determination to feed his family in the healthiest, most natural way – the Tuscan way.
