Bravo TV announced a slew of new green- lit shows that will hit the airwaves in the near future, and one of Atlanta’s own will be back on the airwaves. (Ok, two of Atlanta’s own if you count the Real Housewives of Atlanta spinoff, The Khandi Factory, but I have no time for that drivel.)
Life After Top Chef will profile four Top Chef alums and how their lives have changed after their stints on the flagship competition cooking show. Included in the series are Jen Carroll from Philadelphia, Fabio Viviani from Los Angeles, Spike Mendelsohn from DC, and Atlanta’s favorite Top Cheftestant, Richard Blais.
The announcement comes as no surprise, as the chefs have all been spotted with not-so-inconspicuous camera crews following them around as of late. It comes as no surprise that Blais made the cut, as he was immediately a fan favorite on both of his TC seasons. While the details of his portion of the show have not been released, I assume that we can expect to see a lot of time dedicated to the opening of his much-anticipated new restaurant, The Spence.
Bravo has not released the expected air dates for the new show, but I would expect that we should see the new show by the Fall of this year. And that expectation is nothing but speculation on my part, so don’t take that one to the bank.
I can’t help but wonder what, if any, kind of an impact this will have on The Spence. Are you ready for more Blais on the small screen?
