    Has anyone ever seen this show on TV?

    I've been asked to be a guest chef on the show and have never seen, nor heard of it. I've asked a # of friends and they are very familiar with it,apparently it's a movie of the week format that has a chef do 3 or 4, 90 second spots before the commercial break. The demo is supposed to be somehow tied in with the theme of the movie.I will be shooting this month on the 27th and 28th. I'm actually pretty excited. This may turn into something I can do quarterly.What do you think?

    so what's the movie?....usually there's an interviewer, sometimes they can be total bubbleheads. If the people you're working with are good then go for it! What an opportunity!

    Yes!!! I've seen it, although some years ago. It's a fun format. Brad, your personality is perfect for this. I do think you should wear a name tag so no one thinks Billy Joel is doing the show. :p

    I couldn't agree more! It's one of my wifes favorite shows!!! Will your head get big after this? Will we recognize you or will you be walking around like this:smokin afterwards?
    The dish usually ties into the movie and they have the 2 hosts helping to make the dish with the expertise of the real chef who kind of acts like the straight man. It's not a time for teaching anything about cooking so much as teaching about the dish itself and the tie ins from the dish. Like where the item comes from, how it's grown etc. It's a chance to joke around and have fun... I'd kill for an opportunity like this! No really....I mean it! You need anyone bumped off?:crazy:

    Goodfellas would be a great movie to do, you could cut the garlic with a razor blade.
