Anthony Bourdain's best-selling exposé of the world of fine dining became a failed sitcom starring Bradley Cooper in 2005! KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL also starred John Cho, Nicholas Brendon, John Francis Daley, Jaime King, Bonnie Somerville and Sam Pancake, and only aired for four measly episodes on Fox.
It had the stars, it had the cuisine, but was KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL really... CANCELED TOO SOON? Film critics William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold break down this failed series that went on to build a large fanbase, to see what worked, what was so problematic that Anthony Bourdain eventually apologized for it, and how difficult it is to do an episode of this show without making any Star Trek references.
