Cover your ears. Foul-mouthed British chef Gordon Ramsay is getting another television show on Fox. The network announced Friday it has picked up an American version of The F Word, Ramsay’s show that ran on Channel 4 in the United Kingdom from 2005 to 2010.
Scheduled to premiere sometime in 2017, The F Word will showcase "foodie families from across the U.S." in a live cooking competition/variety show. Contestants will take to the kitchen and try to wow Ramsay, celebrity guests, and other VIPs. Specific details on how the competition will work, or potential prizes, were not immediately available.
"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," Ramsay said in a prepared statement.
The F Word will be notoriously loud chef's seventh series to air on Fox, following Hell’s Kitchen, Hotel Hell, Kitchen Nightmares, Masterchef, Masterchef Celebrity Showdown, and Masterchef Junior. He’s also hosted Best New Restaurant on Bravo and Food Court Wars on Food Network.
"Let’s face it, with Gordon live on television, the phrase ‘anything can happen’ takes on a whole new meaning," David Madden, president of entertainment for Fox Broadcasting Company, said.
