Rocco's Dinner Party will have the celebrity chef judging four aspiring chefs every episode. The cheftestants must create their favorite dish, a themed appetizer and then a complete menu for a dinner party for guests of DiSpirito's choosing. One cook will be eliminated after each part of the challenge.
The series joins Bravo's other cooking competition series, including the Emmy-winning Top Chef. The reality series will launch its third spin-off, Top Chef All-Stars, in December.
Bravo is ramping up its development as it prepares to expand to a fifth night of original programming.
DiSpirito, 44, has served as a judge on Top Chef multiple times. This will be his second reality series, following NBC's The Restaurant in 2003.
Rocco's Dinner Party is expected to debut sometime next year.
