FIVE NEW U.S. PREMIERE LIFESTYLE SERIES ON BBC AMERICA

Five brand new series take viewers into the high-octane worlds of the restaurant, retail, and car industries with BBC AMERICA's latest acquisitions:

� Mary Queen of Shops (Season 1 & 2, 4 x 60 & 6 x 50), produced and distributed by Optomen Television.

� Top Gear (Season 10, 10 x 50), produced by BBC Production and distributed by BBC Worldwide.

� Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares (Season 4, 8 x 60), produced and distributed by Optomen Television.

� Gordon Ramsay's F Word (Season 3, 9 x 49), produced and distributed by Optomen Television.

� Last Restaurant Standing (Season 1, 15 x 60), produced by BBC Production and distributed by BBC Worldwide (U.K. title, The Restaurant).

MARY QUEEN OF SHOPS � U.S. PREMIERE

In Mary Queen of Shops, retail expert, branding and marketing supremo, Mary Portas, helps independent boutique owners rediscover their passion for fashion and puts their struggling shops back on the road to recovery. Mary tackles it all � whether it's window dressing, the clothes on the racks or the staff behind the counter. She uses her contacts to take shop owners behind the scenes, revealing the techniques retail giants use to get customers through the door. BBC AMERICA premiere date to be announced.

TOP GEAR, SEASON TEN � U.S. PREMIERE

Irreverent, witty and refreshingly honest, the award-winning Top Gear seeks out the hottest new cars on the market. Top Gear features dare devil stunts, time trials and grueling road tests, but it's the sharp wit of its hosts, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, that makes Top Gear so much more than the ultimate car show. Season ten features Formula One racers, a contest between a fighter jet and the Bugatti Veyron, a battle between bio-fuelled cars, an African safari, a challenge to create amphibious vehicles and a visit from Academy Award-winning speed-demon, Helen Mirren.

Top Gear, season ten premieres Monday, February 25, 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.

RAMSAY'S KITCHEN NIGHTMARES, SEASON FOUR � U.S. PREMIERE

Multi-Michelin-starred chef, Gordon Ramsay, returns to BBC AMERICA in a fourth, U.S. premiere season of the BAFTA-winning and Emmy-nominated series, Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares. In the series, failing chefs are given the chance of a lifetime � to have their restaurant rescued by one of the best in the business. In the brand new season, Gordon is pushed to the limit as he faces a succession of worst-ever restaurants. There will be walk-outs, shut-outs, shouting matches and one obstinate chef who just won't leave until he's physically removed. The irrepressible Gordon actually fails to turn around one restaurant, but succeeds with the rest, making vegetarian food sexy for the French, using sustainable seafood to reinvent fish and chips and making authentic regional Indian food to replace oily slop.

Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares premieres Thursday, January 24, at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.

GORDON RAMSAY'S F WORD � U.S. PREMIERE

Ramsay's food magazine show is big, bold and fast-paced, fuelled by the irrepressible energy and passion of its host. A typical menu might include three simple Ramsay recipes which viewers can try at home, a trip to an exotic locale in search of delicacies, a visit to Gordon's garden and celebrity foodies challenging Gordon to make their favorite dish better. In the third season, Gordon is joined in the kitchen by amateur cooks, who line up to experience the white heat of cooking and serving a three-course dinner for paying customers, including celebrities. The brigade of amateurs that scores highest in the series-long challenge wins the chance to cook at Ramsay's flagship restaurant, Claridge's. BBC AMERICA premiere date to be announced.

LAST RESTAURANT STANDING � U.S. PREMIERE

The recipe for Last Restaurant Standing features one world-renowned chef � Michelin-starred chef, Raymond Blanc � and nine couples with a dream, but sadly, only one restaurant. Each couple in the show will start with a restaurant, which they'll have to make their own and open to the public in a week. The emotional rollercoaster of chasing a dream � every painstaking decision, every argument, every mistake � is caught on camera, as the couples work together under enormous pressure. Each week, the restaurants are visited by a panel of judges, Lee Cash, Sarah Willingham and John Lederer. The three lowest-rated restaurants will get a special challenge, and the one that fails the task will be shut down. After fourteen episodes, only one couple will remain. The winner will open their own restaurant, with Blanc's financial and personal backing.

Last Restaurant Standing premieres Tuesday, February 12, at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.
