BYUtv Unveils Three New Original Unscripted Series: "Dinner Takes All," "Show Offs" And "Battle Of The Ages" For 2019

PROVO, Utah, Sept. 5, 2018 -- BYUtv, a family entertainment network, today announced three original unscripted shows in production to air in early 2019 - the family cooking competition show "Dinner Takes All," the half-hour musical improv comedy show "Show Offs" and the multi-generational family game show "Battle of the Ages."

"We are thrilled to share these three new series that will bring families closer together through food, music and fun," said Michael Dunn, managing director of BYUtv. "Filmed in our BYUtv studios in association with our phenomenal production partners, they are all great examples of the engaging, family-focused content BYUtv offers."

"Dinner Takes All" is a family cooking competition show hosted by celebrity chef Kelsey Nixon (Food Network, Cooking Channel) in which two teams of five family members go head-to-head to cook their "best Sunday dinner." Each team uses family recipes to create an entrée, three side dishes and a dessert while simultaneously playing interactive food-centric games for bonus points. Winning families receive a year's worth of groceries or a cash prize.

"Food and family are at the heart of 'Dinner Takes All,'" said Nixon. "It is universal subject matter that nearly everyone can relate to and enjoy together. It's wildly entertaining, and aspects of the show will be perfect for bringing into your own home kitchen."

"Dinner Takes All," from Keller/Noll ("Chopped," "Chopped Junior") and BYUtv, will film beginning on Sept. 11, 2018 and will air in spring 2019.

The hilarious, interactive musical improv series "Show Offs" gives its cast, along with a special celebrity guest, the chance to "show off" by performing a spontaneous improvised play or musical, prompted by random ideas from the studio audience and accompanied by a live band. Hosted by comedian Casey Jost ("Late Night with Jimmy Fallon"), its cast features executive producers and co-creators Maclain Nelson ("The Saratov Approach") and Jake Van Wagoner ("Impractical Jokers"), as well as Lisa Valentine Clark ("Random Acts") and Hailey Smith ("Once I Was a Beehive").

"Show Offs," from Kaleidoscope Pictures ("Winter Thaw," "Instrument of War"), Good Guys Productions ("The Saratov Approach," "Once I Was a Beehive") and BYUtv, wrapped production in August and will premiere in January 2019.

The comedic game show "Battle of the Ages" pits two multi-generational family teams against each other in mental and physical challenges. With the opportunity to pick a competitor from the opposing team and test their knowledge on a specific era, this game show will get families talking and laughing while they learn more about each other.

"Battle of the Ages," from Bill's Market & Television Productions ("Ellen's Game of Games," "Fear Factor") and BYUtv, is currently in pre-production and will premiere in spring 2019.

These new shows join BYUtv's original programming slate, including the long-running sketch comedy series "Studio C," which touts over 1 billion views on YouTube, "Relative Race," the first family-history based competitive reality show that follows four teams as they meet relatives linked by DNA for the first time in a race throughout the U.S. and "Random Acts," an unscripted hidden-camera reality show that highlights the altruistic nature of human beings by featuring real people who are the recipients of random acts of kindness. BYUtv is available in every state of the country via cable, satellite and multiple digital media platforms.
