MF Natives to Star on "Playing with Fire"

March 1, 2013 - Kim Collette
E! is again rolling out a new reality show. This time, however, Ohio Valley residents should tune in. Identical twins Derek and Daniel Koch, who grew up in Martins Ferry, are being featured in the show Playing with Fire. From what I understand, Playing with Fire will look inside the professional and personal lives of chefs, stars and taste makers who make up the hot New York City Culinary scene. To quote E! Entertainment President Susan Kolb, "Playing with Fire embodies a world in which a combination of talent, ambition, a lot of charm and a little gamesmanship are needed to reach the ultimate goal---long term success in a high stakes industry." Derek and Daniel Koch are part of an ensemble cast. Other members of the cast include Hostess/Author Anna Boiardi, Pastry Chef Julie Elkind, and Chef/Author Candice Kumai. There are rumored special appearances from Chef/Restaurateur Todd English and Actress/Baking Connoisseur Jennifer Esposito. David Klein, President and Executive Producer of Atlas Media Corp. says, "This ensemble cast has explosive passion and creativity---together they represent the best of what's happening in the world's greatest food city." Derek and Daniel Koch actually started their careers as models, but have seamlessly transitioned into the New York City food scene. They made a name for themselves with their fun and buzz worthy parties, boutique events and hospitality company. The twins are now growing their business into ownership of restaurants, such as Toy at the Gansevoort hotel in New York's Meatpacking district. I quickly learned about Playing with Fire on Facebook. Word spread, no pun intended, like fire. From what I can find out online, Playing with Fire will be a six episode one hour series. The E! tv show will premiere on March 17.
