David Schwimmer will find himself back in New York for a new AMC series, only instead of making Friends, he’ll be starting a haute Greek restaurant in the Bronx. 

The first promo for Feed the Beast sees Schwimmer as Tommy, who’s launching into this venture with his buddy and borderline brother Dion (Jim Sturgess) while on the verge of losing everything. The brief video offers a first look at these characters attempting to survive the heat of the kitchen and the dog-eat-dog food industry.
