Jon Favreau has a show on IFC called “Dinner For Five” that brings together an intimate gathering of guests for an evening of food and banter. The show format is a spontaneous, open forum for people in the entertainment community to let their hair down, chat about life on and off the set and swap stories about projects past and present.
