IFC sets table for ‘Dinner’

Cable network orders up episodes

IFC is getting into the rock and rolls biz.

Cabler has ordered six episodes of “Dinner With the Band,” a half-hour series that will have Gotham chef Sam Mason cooking a meal for top indie bands. Show premieres Nov. 24 and will air 11 p.m. Tuesdays.

Based on a Web series, “Dinner” will mix three musical performances and chat over a fine meal; skein will be shot in a Brooklyn loft. The bands booked are Les Savy Fav, Kid Sister and Flosstradamus, Men, Final Fantasy, Yacht and Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings.

According to Debbie DeMontreux, IFC senior VP of original programming, skein will help attract the net’s male-skewing 18-34 demo.

“We seek guys who embrace indie ways of thinking,” she said. “This show felt very much in that space.”
