About this Show
Based on renowned chef Anthony Bourdain's best-selling autobiography and from executive producers 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 which 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 was offered an opportunity to get back in the game as head chef at a top New York restaurant. Jack hastily assembled a renegade crew of colleagues from his past. From the diners at the front of the house, to the head chef and his rock-star culinary team at the back of the house, Kitchen Confidential is a tasty look at the underbelly of the restaurant world. Created by Darren Star and David Hemingson, Kitchen Confidential is distributed by Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution.
