Mojo renews ‘After Hours’

Celebrity cooking show to return for a second season

High-def cable network Mojo has renewed “After Hours With Daniel” for a second season, with celebrity chef Daniel Boulud to make a round of visits to 10 well-known L.A. restaurants and cook elaborate latenight meals for celeb guests.

The first restaurant visited earlier this month was the pizzeria Mozza, where Boulud and restaurant chef Nancy Silverton whipped up the meal.

Premise of the half-hour series is that cordon-bleu chefs have a tradition of “gathering after work to cook for each other and wind down.” Behind-the-scenes cameras follow Boulud as he shops for ingredients and he and the restaurant’s chef prepare the food, which is a surprise to the guests.

During the meal, the chefs regale their guests with stories of some of the legendary meals they’ve prepared.

Diane Nabatoff, exec producer of “After Hours” for her own company Tiara BluFilms, is shooting the 10 separate half-hours all over Los Angeles this month; the series kicks off on Mojo in October. The first season of eight episodes saw Boulud visiting restaurants throughout New York City.

Other L.A. eateries on the “After Hours” menu include Hatfields, Father’s Office, Sona and Ford’s Filling Station.
