Syfy orders a cooking show, laughs and laughs
The network is announcing "Marcel's Quantum Kitchen," "Paranormal Witness" and "Face Off."
And, no, despite throwing "Quantum" in the title, the show isn't about cooking on a space ship. Or cooking while time traveling. It's just an ex-"Top Chef" contestant catering parties for wealthy jerks by making dishes with lots of foam.
Yeah, "Farscape," it ain't coming back.
In each episode, Marcel and his new catering and event company will be hired by a demanding client to produce an extraordinary celebration or event. Based on the client’s requests, Marcel will dream up a theme and cuisine for the event, which range from a fairytale graduation party and a Goth-rock fashion show to a birthday dinner held on a platform suspended in mid-air. He and his team of party planners and chefs will tap the depths of their imagination and culinary talents to create everything from the immersive décor to a delicious menu that emphasizes Marcel’s unique brand of avant-garde cooking.
Marcel’s Quantum Kitchen is a production of Intuitive Entertainment. Executive Produced by Kevin Dill and Mechelle Collins.
From Dimitri Doganis and Bart Layton, the acclaimed creative team behind Locked Up Abroad, this tense, cinematic, high-octane drama-documentary series brings to life the stories of people who have lived through paranormal experiences that defy explanation; from poltergeists to alien encounters. Using the mixture of intimate first-hand testimony and gritty realistic drama that the producers are known for, Paranormal Witness will take the audience into a world turned upside-down by extraordinary and terrifying events.
Paranormal Witness is a production of Raw TV. Executive Produced by Dimitri Doganis and Bart Layton.

It all culminates in one winner and one grand prize that will launch a career!
