So, this happened. What hovers above is a still from this upcoming Sunday night's episode of Treme, David Simon's New Orleans-based HBO show, featuring chefs David Chang, Tom Colicchio, Eric Ripert, and Wylie Dufresne.
We heard rumblings a couple of months ago that Chang was down in NOLA for the shoot but had no idea the cameo would prove this epic. One of the leading characters of the show, which begins three months post-Katrina, is a chef, so it plays. But still, weird. Tune in on Sunday to see these chefs gain their first TV credits outside of Top Chef Masters and those FCI and Diet Coke commercials.
