Pilot Discussion (9/19/05)

The pilot episode will air September 19, 2005 at 8:30pm after the season premiere of Arrested Development.

Here's how FOX describes it:

Warning: Possible SPOILERS

Based on renowned chef Anthony Bourdain's best-selling autobiography and from executive producer Darren Star ("Sex and the City") and Dave Hemingson ("Just Shoot Me," "American Dad"), KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL exposes the secrets of the restaurant business through the delectable story of a talented chef who's determined to climb back to the top of the food game.

Chef JACK BOURDAIN (Bradley Cooper) found enormous success at a young age. Unfortunately, Jack's culinary genius also let to a lifestyle of boozing, womanizing and drugs - excesses that eventually landed him in the gutter. After hitting rock bottom and deciding to sober up, the only job he could get was slopping soggy pasta for the masses at a tacky opera-themed restaurant.
Out of the blue, Jack is offered an opportunity to get back in the game as head chef at a top New York restaurant. There's just one problem: the owner gives Jack a mere 48 hours to fully staff his kitchen and prepare to dazzle over 300 customers - including the food critic for the New York Times (who also happens to be a jilted ex).

Jack hastily assembles a renegade crew of colleagues from his past, including chefs STEVEN (Owain Yeoman), SETH (Nicholas Brendon) and a rookie pastry chef named JIM (John Francis Daley). Also along for the ride are TANYA (Jaime King), the hostess, and MIMI (Bonnie Somerville), the owner's gorgeous daughter who can't wait for Jack to fail.

Everything Darren Star does is a lot of fun so I'm looking forward to seeing what he does with this show. Especially since he recruited one of his former Grosse Pointe stars to be in it.

Thanks for the link ReachOut. I'll have to watch the clip later when I get the plugin.

This show can't go wrong with it's cast and orginality. The pilot sounds like it's going to be a blast.

I just saw the Pilot Episode, and with not giving away any spoilers, all i can say is that it was "Great".
The number of diverse and interesting characters is possibly the highest point, whilst the entire storyline isn't far behind. It also had a nice small hint of Drama, produced by Bradley Cooper. And of course, the entire episode was hilarious, and really gives me the intention of returning for Episode 2.

Yep, and i just read that Paramount Comedy have picked up the show. But i don't think i'll be able to wait until January to watch it. And so, i have to take the unethical approach (i.e. downloading...).

I'm pretty sure Season One only has 13. Atleast that's all that's planned for now.
