Spike TV has announced that they will premiere a new series called Hungry Investors with a ten episode season starting in the Spring of 2014. New Orleans chef John Besh and former Top Cheftestapant Tiffany Derry will join Bar Rescue's Jon Taffer as the show's " all-star squad of restaurateurs." Spike TV had previously announced that they were developing this series earlier this year, though at that time it was not confirmed who would be joining Taffer in the cast.
According to the press release, the Hungry Investors team will help "'diamond in the rough' failing restaurants meet their potential." They plan to do this by putting two such restaurants in head to head competition each episode for the chance to win "a significant cash investment." Besh, Taffer, and Derry will be on hand to figure out which restaurant "deserves a second chance at success." It all seems a bit like Kitchen Nightmares with a competition thrown in for good measure. The show begins filming in the Fall.
