Mr Williams demonstrated his excitement about the project as he enthused, “What can I say? We are both excited and humbled to be offered and to take on this opportunity. I’ve known the “Chef Max’s Kitchen” team for years and I’m pleased as a co-creator that we have reached this point in the series’ development. Chef Max brings with him an all-star roster of clientele which includes Amar’e Stoudemire (as personal chef), Hip-Hop & R&B Artists including Fabulous and John Legend, a wide array of well-known actors, and a star-studded list of professional athletes and celebrities including Chris Bosch, J.R. Smith, the Prince of Dubai and the Prime Minister of Turks and Caicos, to name just a few. Chef Max is a seasoned and talented entrepreneur and just a great person to work with. His company trains and employs other amazing chefs who showcase amazing culinary skills throughout Los Angeles, New York and Miami and he has personally appeared on shows including The Food Network’s “Chopped”, “Beat Bobby Flay” and “BBQ Brawl”. He also maintains an enviable rolodex of associates within the food series TV space.
“When you combine the aforementioned personnel to our Executive Producing lineup and then include Amar’e “STAT” Stoudemire to the mix, you can’t help but realize the scope of potential professional athletes and celebrities that might appear on the “Chef Max’s Kitchen” series. The nod we’ve been given to pitch and possibly produce the series going forward presents a great moment of opportunity for us and an important addition to the additional initiatives we already have in place for increasing awareness of our BMEP brand and Intellectual Property. We believe the combined momentum of these efforts will help push the “Chef Max’s Kitchen” series to greater heights as well.
