Flavio Insinna announces the return of "Lunch is served", with many great news
Although he is still busy with L'Eredità, the successful Rai1 game show, Flavio Insinna is already at work for a great return: we are talking about Lunch is served, a historic program conceived by Corrado and aired for 11 seasons, at the turn of the 80s and 90s. And it is Insinna who, ready to take over the reins of the transmission, has revealed all its secrets.
In a long interview with Tv Sorrisi e Canzoni, the presenter told how his 12th season of Il cena è SERVED will be, revealing some background: apparently, he has already been working on it for 10 years. "The idea was born from a friendly chat with Marina Donato, Corrado's wife, during the rehearsals of La Corrida in 2011" – explained Flavio Insinna – "Speaking of Lunch is served, we said to each other: 'Have you ever seen that can we do this too? '. Ten years later we decided to propose the idea to the director of Rai1 Stefano Coletta, who in turn forwarded it to the managing director Fabrizio Salini. And here we are ".
The show, which Corrado brought to the fore in the early 1980s, will therefore soon be back on TV. The date is already in place: this new edition will debut on Monday 28 June, which will prove to be full of surprises. Insinna was inspired by the original format, of which he was a huge fan: “It was a regular appointment. That music was the soundtrack of the return from school, I could already hear it from the stairwell ”- admitted the conductor. As for the news, at the moment he preferred not to overreact too much.
"I don't know what it will be like" – in fact confessed Flavio, who is currently busy shooting L’Eredità. However, the first details have emerged, and it is already clear that the show will be a tribute to the great Corrado: “The structure will be the same as always. What is certain is that we will try to give the public the joy of the original version, which we badly need, while also making those who come to play with us win something. " Although the debut date has already been set, work is still in progress: "We are thinking of introducing a small game for those who follow us from home".
This seems to be a really busy season for Flavio Insinna. For years now at the helm of the Rai1 game show, he is now preparing for the great return of Il lunch e serve. Moreover, as he himself announced on Tv Sorrisi e Canzoni, he will soon be back on the small screen in the role of captain Anceschi in the fiction Don Matteo: “They say it every new season, but this time it's true. In recent days I went to try on the new uniforms. I should be in an episode… if the production doesn't change its mind ”.
