Beatriz and Her “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” Team to Serve as Celebrity Judges on Bravo’s “Top Chef Duels”

Stephanie Beatriz is about to get served

The Argentinean actress and her Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-stars are slated to appear on Top Chef Duels, another Top Chefseries from Bravo. 

Stephanie Beatriz

Top Chef Duels pits 18 of the best and most talked-about personalities frompast seasons of Top Chef and Top Chef Masters for a “battle royale” in the kitchen.

The 10-episode Top Chef Duels, hosted by celebrity chef Curtis Stone, will premiere on Wednesday, August 6, at 10:00 pm ET, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Stone will serve on the judges’ table withGail Simmons, with chefs like Wolfgang Puck and Hugh Acheson rounding out the panel on a rotating basis.

Beatriz and her Brooklyn Nine-Nine team (Andy Samberg, Melissa Fumero, Chelsea Peretti and co-creator Dan Goor) will serve as celebrity guests for one episode.

Other celebrity guests this season include Shailene Woodley, Pink, Scott Ian Rosenfeld, Gary Holt, Rob Zombie and the Grey’s Anatomy gang (James Pickens Jr., Sarah Drew, Camilla Luddington, Jerrika Hinton and Kevin McKidd).

As the title suggests, Top Chef Duels will have two chefs facing off in three rounds of head-to-head battles, with the competitors picking “mini duels,” targeting the other’s perceived weaknesses. The third challenge then decides who moves on to compete in the season finale, which will crown the sole winner of the $100,000 grand prize and a Food and Winefeature.

Bravo is also borrowing from its Top Chef online companion series Last Chance Kitchen, which pits eliminated contestants against each other for a chance to compete in the finale, with the Top Chef Duel equivalent: The Knockout, hosted by Puck.The same essential rules apply, though there is one twist. Unlike Last Chance Kitchen, a chef only needs one battle win to quality for a place in The Knockout online finals, though the more wins a chef has, the better their chances are in earning the sole return spot on the show.

Fox Renews Beatriz’s “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” for a Second Season

It looks like Stephanie Beatriz will protect and serve for another season…

Fox has given an early renewal to its Golden Globe-winning freshman comedy series Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which stars the Colombian-Bolivian-Spanish American actress and former Saturday Night Live cast member Andy Samberg.

Stephanie Beatriz

Beatriz portrays Detective Rosa Diaz on the sitcom, which has been picked up for a complete second season.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which earned the Best Television Series – Musical or Comedy earlier this year, is set in the fictional 99th Precinct of the New York City Police Department in Brooklyn. Her character is described as a smart, tough, and mysterious detective with anger management issues, which leads to most of the precinct being scared of her.

The single-camera series follows a precinct team of detectives and a newly appointed captain.

In addition to Samberg and Beatriz, the series also stars former One Life to Live star Melissa Fumero as Detective Amy Santiago.

Beatriz’s previous credits include television appearances on The Closer, Modern Family and Southland.

Stephanie Beatriz is joining the force…

The Latina actress has been cast in Fox’s still-untitled police comedy pilot starring former Saturday Night Live star Andy Samberg and former One Life to Live alum Melissa Fumero.

Stephanie Beatriz on Modern Family

The comedy from Parks and Recreations Dan Goor and Mike Schur centers on a diverse group of detectives at a New York City precinct.

Beatriz, who most recently guest-starred as Sofia Vergara‘s hermana on ABC’s Modern Family, will play Meghan, a sexy and frightening police officer who is tough, opinionated and unpredictable and scares the bejesus out of the other police officers just as much as she does the criminals she detains.

Samberg will play the station’s top, with Fumero recently landing the co-starring role of Amy, a smart cop and former middle-school teacher. Newsroom‘s Terry Crews also co-stars.

Beatriz’s credits include The Closer and the ABC comedy pilot The Smart One last season.

Fumero Cast in Fox’s Andy Samberg Comedy Pilot

Melissa Fumero is joining Samberg’s force

The 30-year-old Cuban-American actress has been named the female lead in Fox’s untitled Mike Schur and Dan Goor comedy pilot, starring former Saturday Night Live star Andy Samberg.

Melissa Fumero

The comedy pilot centers on a diverse group of detectives in a precinct at the edge of New York City.

Fumero, best known for for her role as Adriana Cramer on One Life to Live, will portray Amy, an attractive and smart police detective who was raised in the outskirts of Manhattan. Before joining the force, she was a middle-school teacher. When it comes to dating, she doesn’t date fellow police officers, even though there are a ton of prospects in the line of fire.

Along with her One Life to Live stint, Fumero’s credits include appearances on Gossip Girl, The Mentalist and CSI: New York.

She’s married to her former OLTL co-star David Fumero, who portrayed Cristian Vega on the soap opera.
