Interactive Chef from Bravo, Time Warner

New original Bravo series Top Chef is going interactive thanks to Time Warner Cable and Navic Networks.

The MSO’s viewers will be able to respond with their remote control to a series of topical questions and voice their opinions about the contestants, using Navic’s interactive-TV application.

The interactive component will begin with the series’ debut Wednesday, March 8 at 11 p.m. (EST) and continue throughout the season when Top Chef settles into its regular time at 10 p.m.

Bravo said Top Chef “features 12 aspiring chefs who head to San Francisco for their shot at culinary stardom and the chance to earn the prestigious title, $100,000 cash prize and a feature in Food & Wine magazine.”
