(Newser) – Paula Deen is taking the next step into reinserting herself into your life: The fallen Food Network star is going digital in her quest for a comeback, announcing plans today for the Paula Deen Network, a paid subscription-based network set to launch in September that will be accessible by computer, smartphone, or tablet. The network will feature daily programming in an unscripted format with new recipes, episodes, and cooking tools. The rundown:

  • What Deen says: "Y'all can get my recipes, tips, and cooking anytime you want—this is for you. I can't wait to crank up the oven and get cooking for the people I love: my family, my friends, and my fans!"

  • What's not new: Production for the network began last month at a new studio in Savannah that has been designed to look like the set of her first television show, Paula's Home Cooking. The set was built to accommodate a live studio audience, and guest appearances are planned.
  • What's sort of new: In addition to the dishes Deen is known for, she'll also include healthy and budget-friendly meals. The programming for the digital network will include both short-form and long-form content, including shows like 20-Minute Meals, Paula Cooking Light, and One Dish, Three Ways.
