Bravo Invites 'Rocco's Dinner Party' To Its Series Table

Bravo is inviting a new show to its original production party.

The NBC Universal network has given the green light to Rocco's Dinner Party, with celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito.

Casting for the series is currently underway, and production will begin in 2011.

 The series will be produced by Bravo in partnership with Notional, an IAC company. Dave Noll, Chachi Senior and Christopher Stout are executive producers, with Dispirito serving as producer.

A self-contained competition series, Rocco's Dinner Party will pit four highly skilled chefs, whether restaurateurs, caterers or self-taught foodies, who will try to cook up the perfect evening for DiSpirito and his hand-picked celebrity guests each week, with the winner taking home a cash prize. The chefs will be challenged to invent an appetizing menu and then execute it to perfection, as well as set the table and the mood to create an ambience that makes the dinner party guests want to stick around for seconds.

Chefs who think they have the proper ingredients to join the dinner party should email for more information.
