NBC official: “offer on the table” for second season of The Restaurant.
An NBC official says “[t]here’s an offer on the table” for a second season of The Restaurant, which concludes its six-episode first season on Sunday night. Rocco tells The New York Post he’s down with the idea, and says the show still has potential. “We had a dining room at times with 12 cameramen in there. And people still did things that you just can’t believe they did on television.”
+ also: “promos interfere with key educational matters associated with starting and running a business.”
