Bravo announced a new development slate of four series, including the food show Roblé & Co (working title). It stars the hippity-hopping chef Roblé Ali, who attempts to "conquer the catering world with his innovative cuisine and style" from his Brooklyn loft by throwing "world-class events for New York socialites to media moguls" with the help of a "ragtag crew of old friends and unique characters." Hip-hop meets catering? There had better be some rapping about wine.
Here's the full description of the new Bravo show plus a video trailer and episode one of Roblé Ali's 2008 cooking show "What's Really Cooking?":
Chef Roblé Ali has established his reputation cooking for some of the biggest celebrities at New York hot-spots like Avenue. Now, viewers can follow Roblé’s attempt to conquer the catering world with his innovative cuisine and style. Based out of his Brooklyn loft, his new company is guided by Roblé’s bossy big sister, Jasmine, and relies on the skills of a ragtag crew of old friends and unique characters. They produce world-class events for New York socialites to media moguls, but pulling them off is never as smooth as they want it to be. Roblé has mastered the art of cooking, but running a business is a whole different story.
