Gordon Ramsay launching live cooking competition show on Fox
Censors get ready: Fox is launching a live cooking competition show with Gordon Ramsay.
Titled The F Word, the hour-long series has foodie families competing in a prime-time cook-off. The amateur cooks will try to impress Ramsay and celebrity guests with their skills. The show is based on a U.K. show of the same name and format.
“Gordon Ramsay is not only one of the biggest names in the culinary world, but his expertise, combined with his larger-than-life personality, also make for genuine event television,” said David Madden, Fox entertainment president. “Gordon Ramsay stands tall in the line of great Fox stars, those unpredictable originals whom you simply can’t afford to miss, and The F Word could come from no one but Gordon. Let’s face it, with Gordon live on television, the phrase ‘anything can happen’ takes on a whole new meaning.”
The F Word will mark Fox’s sixth series with the celebrity chef; the show follows Hell’s Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, Hotel Hell, MasterChef, and MasterChef Junior.
The F Word will premiere in 2017.
