New local health TV show coming

CELEBRITY chef Charles Mattocks is preparing to launch a local television show about diabetes with former Third World percussionist Irvin ‘Carrot’ Jarrett.

Production on the project will reportedly start next week.


“I am involved with the entity that is putting on the show, but there is not much details I can give you at this time,” Jarrett told Splash.

The show was conceptualised by Mattocks and has Reversed as a working title.

Mattocks’ culinary skills have been showcased on top-rated American television shows such as ABC’s Good Morning America, CNN’s Dr Oz and NBC’s Today Show.

He is also a best-selling author who works with organisations such as the American Diabetes Association and the International Diabetes Federation.

Jarrett, a member of the classic Third World line-up from the 1970s and early 1980s, is a naturopathic — one who utilises the healing attributes of music.

He hosts a weekly programme, Living Well, on Radio Jamaica.
