WATCH: Netflix Series "Replacing Chef Chico" Starring Piolo Pascual, Alessandra de Rossi, and Sam Milby Releases Main Trailer

For Filipinos, romance and food make a sizzling combination, and the first local Netflix production in a series format serves up a zesty love triangle set against the backdrop of a high-end fine dining restaurant. "Replacing Chef Chico" is the brainchild of director Dan Villegas, assistant director Joi Bayan, and showrunner Antoinette Jadaone. It stars three of the biggest veterans in the local entertainment industry — Piolo Pascual, Alessandra de Rossi and Sam Milby. 

Offering a glimpse into the high-stakes and competitive culinary world, the series’ trailer introduces viewers to the main characters whose lives become intertwined at Hain, a fictional up-and-coming fine dining restaurant that specializes in customizing each dish to mirror their diners’ unique life stories. But things take an unexpected turn when titular character Chef Chico (Sam Milby) gets into an accident, leaving him in a coma. The fate of Hain is suddenly left in the hands of his sous chef Chef Ella (Alessandra de Rossi) and a newly hired consultant Raymond (Piolo Pascual), who has more than just the restaurant on his mind.

Speaking to a panel of press and outlets in the “See What’s Next” event held last September 18, acclaimed showrunner Antoinette Jadaone shared that her inspiration for "Replacing Chef Chico" came from her love for food-related shows. Recommending the series  for holiday viewing, she added: “I think it’s perfect for the Christmas season because, at its core, it’s about love, friendship, and acceptance. Each episode tells a story of family, friendship, and love, all celebrated over food.” 

"Replacing Chef Chico" was produced for Netflix in association with CS Studios and Project8. Catch it on November 24, only on Netflix.
