CENTURY CITY, Calif. - Exposing 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, Fox Home Entertainment serves up laughs with "Kitchen Confidential" The Complete Series, debuting on DVD May 22, 2007. Based on the hilarious bestselling memoir by real-life New York chef Anthony Bourdain and brought to life by director Fred Savage ("The Wonder Years") and executive producer Darren Starr ("Sex & The City"), "Kitchen Confidential" is a recipe for hip, chaotic fun, with its outrageous ingredients taken from the fast-paced world of the Big Apple's crazy kitchen culture. The series features a dynamic young cast, including Bradley Cooper (Wedding Crashers) as Bourdain, Nicholas Brendon (Xander from "Buffy The Vampire Slayer") as pastry chef extraordinaire and model Jaime King (Sin City 2) as their restaurant's sexy hostess, as well as a full-service menu of Hollywood's most talented up-and-comers such as John Francis Daley ("Freaks And Geeks") and Bonnie Somerville ("NYPD Blue"). Nominated for an Episodic Comedy writing award by the Writer's Guild of America, "Kitchen Confidential" is an irreverent entrée offering a tasty mélange of spicy comedy and sweet satire, set against the backdrop of the big city's most competitive sink-or-swim industry. The two-disc DVD collection features all 13 episodes from the series, as well as interview from the series premiere and a "Kitchen Confidential" trailer. The "Kitchen Confidential" DVD Collection will be available for the suggested retail price of $29.98 U.S./$37.98 Canada.

Jack Bourdain is a talented chef whose bacchanalian lifestyle has effectively ended his career: Too much wine, women and song has made Jack a has-been. But, when he's given a second chance and just 48 hours to staff and open an upscale restaurant, Jack assembles a hilariously dysfunctional and wildly libidinous staff, and things really start cooking, both in the kitchen and in the bedroom!
From the executive producer of Sex and the City comes yet another fresh and sophisticated take on sitcoms. Kitchen Confidential is an outrageously sexy and uproariously delightful comedy treat...Bon appetit!
