FOX just can’t get enough Gordon Ramsay, and it seems his fans can’t get enough of him either. The network announced this week that it has ordered The F Word, a new food variety show from award-winning chef and series host Gordon Ramsay.
The series will be based on his hit U.K. series of the same name, and each hour will combine good food and good cooking with Ramsay’s passion, energy and humor into a live series. THE F WORD is scheduled to premiere in 2017 on FOX.
On THE F WORD, families from across the U.S. will battle it out in an intense, high-stakes cook-off. In addition to impressing Ramsay, each team must win over the hearts and taste buds of the diners, celebrities and VIP guests whom they’re serving.
Throughout each hour-long episode, cooking competition meets variety show as Ramsay chats with surprise guests and VIPs in the dining room, hosts live remotes with people from across the country, and appears weekly in unique field segments with fans, foodies and culinary experts.
“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, President, Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company. “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.”
“We’re really ramping it up a notch with this new live cooking show each week, and I can’t wait for viewers to see the other surprises we have in store for each episode,” said series host Gordon Ramsay.
THE F WORD is produced by Studio Ramsay and All3 America. The series is executive-produced by Gordon Ramsay, Greg Lipstone, Layla Smith and Chris Brogden.
