No, this is not a racial comedy- at least we don’t think it is. Whites refers to the lead character Roland White, as well as the dress code in a kitchen, where this new NBC comedy is set.
The fact paced kitchen at a beautiful upstate New York restaurant, where Roland White, super-chef from the New York culinary scene has spent three years in exile after some event led to disgrace. Enter Emily, a gluten-free, farm to table, gender-neutral pronoun kind of pastry chef who will probably clash with and learn a few things from. Is that you Mario Batali?
Okay, so maybe Whites has a triple meaning after all.
The new series comes from Will Arnett and Matt Tarses and is based on a UK series that starred Alan Davies as the chef at a country house hotel. The series ran on the BBC.
