Playing with Fire (TV show) cast
"Playing with Fire" (TV show) is a reality docu-series on E! Entertainment that dishes up an exclusive look inside the lives of the driving personalities who are at the forefront of New York's world-renowned culinary scene. The series showcases the movers and shakers of New York's exciting restaurant industry as they work to strike a balance between busy professional and personal lives in a city known for its cut-throat competitiveness, vigorous pace and of course delectable cuisine.

The series features a cast of New York's star "foodies" that includes well-connected Chef Boyardee heiress, brand ambassador and cookbook author Anna Boiardi; devilishly handsome nightlife impresarios-turned-food-entrepreneurs Derek and Daniel Koch; Julie Elkind, a pastry chef extraordinaire with a little edge to go along with her sweet touch; Candice Kumai, a former model and "Top Chef" competitor who aims to keep foodies' waistlines trim with her calorie-conscious cuisine. Actress Jennifer Esposito, who lives with Celiac disease and has committed herself to advocating for those in her position and cooking Gluten-free food will also make appearances in the series, as will celebrity Chef/Restaurateur Todd English.

This fascinating bunch is a cross section of players who reside atop New York's glamorous food scene. Reservations at an elite chef's dining room are as sought after as tickets to the hottest Broadway show, and writers covering food, gossip and business wield tremendous power as they keep close tabs on the volatile professional and personal lives of the revered leaders. This all results in a city that brims with a variety of delicious food choices, from haute cuisine to simple fare that inspires the palates of food lovers around the world.

The series will feature the Koch brothers' fun and buzz-worthy parties; Boiardi's intimate dinner gatherings overflowing with succulent fare and celebrity faces; Elkind's intensely active pastry kitchen where the delicate delights on display belie the stressful atmosphere, and former Los Angeleno Candice Kumai's quest to make a name for herself in New York. Playing with Fire illustrates what New York City's food scene is known for — big helpings of high energy and the drive for success, with a side of drama.

"Playing with Fire" is produced by Atlas Media Corp., with Bruce David Klein serving as Executive Producer, Joseph Eardly and Lorri Leighton as Co-Executive Producers.
