HELL�S KITCHEN is a culinary boot camp that features a group of wannabe Cordon Bleu cooks and aspiring restaurateurs running a top-class restaurant, overseen by world-renowned but terrifying Head Chef GORDON RAMSAY. Ramsay and HELL�S KITCHEN will serve helpings of terror, tears, tantrums and triumphs in this dramatic unscripted series.
A former pro-soccer-player-turned-Michelin-starred-chef, Ramsay will cross the Pond to the United States� hotbed of haute cuisine, Los Angeles, to open the city's newest restaurant.
Adapted from the wildly successful British short-run series of the same name, HELL�S KITCHEN will follow the competing chefs 24/7, capturing the drama, intrigue and high emotion as the restaurant�s opening night approaches. These ambitious hopefuls believe they have the drive, talent and desire to run their own restaurant, and they will be tossed into the cauldron, working under Ramsay and fighting for survival.
The participants may have varying culinary experience, whether as a burger flipper, a mother of six or a barbecue wiz, but one thing they all will have in common is a passion for food. Each week Ramsay will slice and dice the contestants, keeping those who possess the right combination of ingredients to ensure success.
The contestants will believe they have what it takes to work in the adrenalin-fueled atmosphere of a busy kitchen ... but they haven't worked for the perfectionist Ramsay before. A man they may fear and respect in equal measure, he will be assessing their performance and driving them to achieve the best. For him, failure is not an option, and nothing and no one will stand in his way. So for the trainees, this means one thing � if they can�t stand the heat they�ll have to get out of HELL�S KITCHEN.
HELL�S KITCHEN is produced by Granada Entertainment and A. Smith & Co. Paul Jackson, Arthur Smith and Kent Weed serve as executive producers.
