Speaking of local peeps' television deals: One-time Private Social chef/Top Chef alum Tiffany Derry is getting a regular TV gig on Spike TV via a new show called Hungry Investors. The series will feature Derry alongside New Orleans chef/dreamboat John Besh and reality TV dude Jon Taffer, who is also the star of the network's Bar Rescue (on which Derry had a recent guest spot).
According to SpikeTV, the show "puts two struggling restaurants to the test to prove they deserve a second chance at success. The enterprise that shows the most promise of turning things around earns a significant cash investment." The network has ordered 10 hour-long episodes of the show, which will begin airing in the spring.
