[via press release from FOX]


Hell hath no fury like an angry chef, and no chef has a sharper temper than Gordon Ramsay when things go wrong in the kitchen. The star of the highly rated culinary boot camp HELL�S KITCHEN returns to FOX with another sizzling unscripted series, KITCHEN NIGHTMARES. This time, Chef Ramsay hits the road, in each episode tackling a restaurant in crisis and exposing the stressful realities of trying to run a successful food business. KITCHEN NIGHTMARES starts production in February, while the third season of HELL�S KITCHEN starts production later this month and will premiere on FOX this spring.

For restaurant owners in crisis with lazy chefs in the kitchen, temperamental wait staffs and few and unhappy diners, it�s time to call in the restaurant industry�s equivalent of 911.

Inspired by one of the UK�s biggest hits, KITCHEN NIGHTMARES is seen in more than 50 territories around the globe, and the series reveals a whole new side to Ramsay. He�s still prone to the explosive outbursts and spectacular confrontations familiar to fans of HELL�S KITCHEN, but he also shows his sensitive and nurturing side � a unique blend of fury, passion, inspirational leadership and tough love that can turn a small spark of talent into a roaring flame.

Feared and revered in equal measure, Ramsay has to galvanize owners, chefs and their kitchen brigades as he attempts to turn around the fortunes of each restaurant in just one week and save them from their living nightmares.

There�s no time for polite small talk as Ramsay embarks on his mission to turn things around. If the wine waiter�s service isn�t up to par, he�ll be out the door before he can say �merlot.� If the head chef doesn�t match up to Ramsay�s expectations, Ramsay will hammer him into shape, and if he can�t stand the heat, he may quit the kitchen.

Ramsay�s reputation is on the line, so there�s bound to be high blood pressure, raised voices and serious clashes as he attempts to do the impossible: turn a deserted dining room into the most sought-after venue in town in just a week.

KITCHEN NIGHTMARES is from Granada America based on a format by Optomen Television. Executive producers are Arthur Smith, Pat Llewellyn, Kent Weed, Gerry McKean and Curt Northrup.
