Big Restaurant Bet

Chef and restaurateur Geoffrey Zakarian is looking to invest $250,000 of his resources for the next rising star in the restaurant world.

Through six one-hour episodes, Geoffrey presents eight talented chefs with the opportunity to take the next step in their culinary career with challenges to determine who has what it takes to run their first restaurant.

When it comes to developing and operating a successful restaurant, there is no one with more knowledge than Geoffrey, and he is putting his reputation on the line to lift up a new generation of chefs competing to make their restaurant vision come true.

Throughout the competition the aspiring restaurateurs must prove they can develop a restaurant and make it profitable from the ground up in real world challenges that put their culinary and business expertise to the test, including the creation of a full menu for their proposed restaurant in a grand tasting to impress Geoffrey and his advisors.

In the series premiere, "You Can't Phone in a Chicken!": The promising chefs are invited to Geoffrey's home base in beautiful seaside Florida as they take on their first test - create a simple, one-bite dish that best showcases who they are and what their restaurant concept is.

Geoffrey needs to know each chef, not just on a skill level but also on a personal level, to be certain that the person he chooses is the right fit for him and his hospitality group.

With the help of his wife and business partner Margaret Zakarian and hospitality consultant and renowned executive chef Eric Haugen as judges, the chef whose dish is not up to par is sent home.

Next, the chefs return to the kitchen to prove they are capable of cooking the basics, as defined by Geoffrey.

Another chef is eliminated while the chefs that can impress the judges with their dishes are one step closer to working with Geoffrey to become tomorrow's restaurant mogul.

In another episode, the chefs tackle the challenges associated with running a restaurant's front of house as they each take turns helping the guests.

But what the chefs don't know is Geoffrey has filled the restaurant with actors meant to cause havoc and see how the competitors react on their worst day.

The two chefs who advance to the finale take on the hardest test of their life, operating their dream culinary concept in a restaurant takeover, complete with overseeing staffing and cooking for real diners.

Which chef will Geoffrey decide to invest his time and energy into and make their dreams come true?

Walker will attempt to reconnect with his creative and thoughtful son and his headstrong, somewhat rebellious teenaged daughter and navigate changes with the rest of the family.

His ADA brother returned home from New York and stepped in during Walker's absence, making it all the more difficult for Walker to resume his place in the family.

The perceptive matriarch of the Walker clan, Abeline, doesn't hesitate to speak her mind to keep everyone in line and their traditional rancher father, Bonham, isn't much for long winded, sentimental prattling, but voices his opinion when it counts most.

At work, Walker's former colleague, Larry James, is now his Ranger Captain and both men need time to adjust to their new dynamic.

Walker finds unexpected common ground with his new partner, Micki Ramirez.

She knows there's a lot at stake for her in this new job and is quick to school Walker on curbing his maverick ways.

Sea Hunters

When science and film team-up to explore the Einsteinsof the oceans.

Humpback Gang

Every spring in Norway, whales use a clever hunting technique called “bubble feeding” to catch quantities of herring.

When they spot a shoal of herring, they begin to encircle the herring, periodically releasing streams of bubbles that form a curtain of air, surrounding the fish.

Marine biologists Eve Jourdain and Richard Kaoliussen have spent two years studying the orcas in Norway, where they have adapted the carrousel technique to their habitat.

In the depths of the ocean, swift and agile sea lions perform incredible underwater maneuvers to outwit their enemies.

Whales vs. Gulls

In the heart of the Valdees Peninsula, in Patagonia, whales are regularly hunted by a predator whose diminutive size hides its gruesome intentions: the seagull, forcing whales to dive deep into the depths, away from essential oxygen and light.

With a new apartment and the addition of a furry friend, Leah McSweeney is on a mission to continue elevating her life.

Embarking on a journey to convert to Judaism, Leah's newfound spirituality helps guide her as she faces the challenges of co-parenting her daughter and the devastating loss of a family member.

No longer the new girl on the block, Leah is delighted to welcome Eboni to the group and have a good time with a fellow boss.

The Upper East Side welcomes back Luann de Lesseps, who is excited to settle into her new space, be closer to friends, and even spark up a new romance.

After spending much-needed quality time with her family in Florida, Ramona Singer has returned to the city and is gearing up for her latest venture in real estate.

She once again plays host to the women at her house in the Hamptons and finds herself at the center of old and new tensions among the ladies.

Sonja Morgan is embracing a new chapter centered on self-love and self-care.

With her friends by her side, she is encouraged to discover all she has to offer, and what the future looks like when she commits to prioritising positive energy.

After going off the grid for a bit, Sonja is back in the Townhouse to ground herself, move forward, reconnect with old friends and explore her dating options.

New housewife Eboni K. Williams is the definition of a multi-hyphenate as a successful attorney, broadcaster, producer and author.
