TV briefs: "Top Chef Home Edition"

The Fresno BeeOctober 11, 2013 

Cooking up something new: Bravo Media has two new digital content offerings for fans: "Top Chef Home Edition" — a digital and social extension of the network's on-air culinary competition, "Top Chef" — and "Social Snaps," a photo stream aggregating content from various Bravo social feeds.

On "Top Chef Home Edition," fans can explore entertaining and user-friendly activities, such as theme-based games that will help novice chefs grow their culinary expertise, while enabling evolved foodies to put their cooking skills to the test via classic "Quickfire Challenges," pulling from past seasons as well as original challenges inspired by the show.

"Social Snaps" offers a real-time peek into the social lives of Bravo celebrities across the network's shows.

Back for more: The Travel Channel has renewed four series: season six of "Bizarre Foods America" with Andrew Zimmern; the second season of "Dangerous Grounds" with Todd Carmichael; season four of "Hotel Impossible" with Anthony Melchiorri; and season six of "Mysteries at the Museum" hosted by Don Wildman.

This is in addition to the previously announced renewals of season three of "Toy Hunter" with Jordan Hembrough; and season three of "Trip Flip" with Bert Kreischer.

Special guest: "ABC News Anchor" Bob Woodruff will give a keynote address at Disney's first Veterans Institute workshop on Nov. 14 at the Walt Disney World Resort. The plan is to inspire companies to employ servicemen and women transitioning to the private sector.

On Jan. 29, 2006, while reporting on U.S. and Iraqi security forces, Woodruff was seriously injured by a roadside bomb that struck his vehicle near Taji, Iraq. In February 2007, just 13 months after being wounded in Iraq, Woodruff returned to "ABC News" with his first on-air report, "To Iraq and Back: Bob Woodruff Reports."
