Meet the Private Chefs of Beverly Hills

Food Network is set to premiere one of it’s most highly anticipated and hyped series in quite some time.  Taking a cue from Bravo’s Real House Wives franchise they have developed Private Chefs of Beverly Hills.  An inside look at Tinsel Town shindigs from the point of view of the culinary teams that put them together.

Here’s how describes it:

Skilled chefs in Hollywood, some of them gay, some of them foreign. High-end, demanding clients, most of them assholes. When the two worlds collide, it sounds like the recipe for success, right? Maybe!

Here’s the premise: The show follows around a company called Big City Chefs, which specializes in private catering. And guess what, all of their employees can not only cook, but they are just like, totally crazy. Not like your office. Your office just thinks it’s fun and unique and wacky. Just because Linda from accounts receivable got drunk and sang karaoke on the bar during the holiday party does not make your office unique. These guys put your stupid office to shame. Does your company have enough zany characters and conflict to have a television show? Yeah, didn’t think so. Well this one doesn’t really, either. But still! It’s on TV somehow!

So who are the Private Chefs of Beverly Hills (aka PCO90210)?
