Stanley Tucci is the king of our (and Colin Firth's) hearts.
This Valentine's Day, CNN will air two original series. One is Lincoln: Divided We Stand, narrated by Sterling K. Brown, and the other is ... Stanley Tucci roaming Italy in a button-up. Did we, as a nation, collectively manifest this?
The new six-part show airs at 9 p.m. ET/PT on February 14 and will feature Stanley Tucci, who is proudly of Italian heritage, eating his way through Tuscany, Sicily, Milan, Rome, Bologna, and Naples/The Amalfi Coast. Fitting for a man/minor deity with two cookbooks (The Tucci Cookbook and The Tucci Table: Cooking with Family and Friends), an upcoming food memoir, Taste: My Life Through Food, and the sexiest/most soothing Instagram live we've ever seen—the now-infamous negroni how-to.

Of the upcoming series, the actor, writer, director, and producer said, “During a time when everyone wishes they could travel, the series will transport you through Italy’s cultural past and present through its extraordinary cuisine. The food tells the story of this country’s unique history and I’m thrilled to serve as a guide through this journey.” Did you hear that? Stanley is our guide. Nature is healing.
I appreciate what it says about our country that on Valentine's Day, couples across the nation will be presented with two options: wine, dine, and canoodle, or thirst watch Stanley Tucci eat pasta—and they will choose Stanley. I look forward to Stanley becoming the new St. Valentine, and as we inevitably rebrand the holiday around him, might I suggest the following promotional images?

Suffice it to say, Stanley Tucci: Searching for Italy is exactly what we're looking for.
Are you going to watch his new show? Do you prefer his striped apron or his polka dot apron? Just how many button-ups do you predict he'll wear on "Searching for Italy"? Let us know in the comments.
