Kevin Sbraga has been working on a TV show for a year now, and it's ready to hit the small screen.

But keep in mind that this is a pilot.

On Get Trucked - commence groaning - the Top Chef Season 7 winner plays troubleshooter on food trucks - "their menus, their service and their curb appeal," says Sbraga, who worked with Nancy Glass Productions.

He said the Travel Channel had asked for the show; when that didn't pan out, the show was also shopped to Spike and Cooking Channel's sibling, Food Network.

Though Sbraga is a fine-dining kind of guy, his past happens to be in food trucks. He worked on one with his father dispensing bakery items, hot dogs and sausages, and coffee.

Schedule is here.
