Writers around the world over the age of 18 are welcome to submit their work, but all submitted scripts must be in English.

TUBI SET TO PREMIERE SPECIAL VETERANS DAY EPISODE OF “KITCHEN COMMANDO”

November 6, 2023

TUBI SET TO PREMIERE SPECIAL VETERANS DAY 

EPISODE OF “KITCHEN COMMANDO” 

Chef Rush Returns for this USAA Sponsored Episode 

Focused on a Veteran Owned Restaurant 

SAN FRANCISCO, November 6, 2023 – Tubi (www.tubi.tv), Fox Corporation’s ad-supported video-on-demand service, will premiere a special episode of KITCHEN COMMANDO, sponsored by USAA on Veterans Day.

In this emotional and powerful Veterans Day special, the greenhorn owners of “Neighbors Bar & Grill” in Broadlands, Virginia are determined to make their restaurant work even as they may be merely days away from having to close their doors. Chef Rush steps in to try and revive their restaurant, but his most lasting impact may be reminding this veteran owner of the power of teamwork and how his veteran community is there to embrace him in hard times.

“Tubi is proud to partner with USAA on producing this impactful Veterans Day episode of  KITCHEN COMMANDO,” said Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer at Tubi. “The collaboration was a natural synergistic opportunity for Tubi and USAA to authentically tell a compelling story about what it means to be part of the Veteran community.”

Together, on Veterans Day and every day, we salute the individuals who have defended our freedoms and proudly served our country.”
