Fred Sirieix is taking on a huge hospitality challenge for a new E4 series.
Giving back to the industry that made him, the French maître d’ will recruit 10 young people for tough roles in a high-end hotel.
Located on the French Riviera in the area where Fred himself trained as a youngster, the team will cater for demanding clientele from around the world.
Across the eight episodes, the recruits must abide by strict rules and face all types of challenges to live up to the hotel and Fred’s high standards. If they make it to the end, they will learn invaluable life skills, and one will also receive a life-changing internship at a top tier hospitality group. But if they don’t step up to the plate, Fred may have to say “au revoir.”
Karl Warner, Head of Youth and Digital at Channel 4 said: “Viewers are going to be treated to seeing Fred like never before. Pushed to his limit and well and truly out of his comfort zone, he’ll be marshalling his wet behind the ear and naive assistants as he tries to transform them into an elite hospitality team.
“The series promises all the intense drama and humour our audiences love on E4 and All 4 – bonne chance, Fred."
