What is Kitchen Confidential? Get the answer here!!

It seemed to me that there is not a central thread explaining the basic premise of this show. So...



Series Premiere on FOX Monday September 19 at 8:30/7:30c

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 led 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.

FOX's offical website - Not much there now, should be updated the closer it gets to the premire.

TV.com's page on KC - Some great articles, mild spoilers involved in some.

I keep waiting for Fox to amp up the KC site, maybe they are waiting for it to be closer to the premiere date before they do!

I saw the commercial for this show last night and I already think it's going to be hilarious. Of course I'm mostly looking forward to seeing Bradley Cooper on a weekly basis again.
