In this year in which his TV show launches in the United States, we look forward to helping him achieve even greater impact.”

The television show mentioned is Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution USA, which will start in 2010 on ABC, and be produced by Ryan Seacrest. The series will show Oliver giving healthy makeovers to places around the U.S.

As part of the award, the TED community has also offered to Jamie one wish which the entire body will work to grant through their collective efforts. As TED members include some of the most influential people in the world, Oliver will get quite the backing when his wish is revealed this coming February.
