Fox’s “Masterchef” gets a July premiere date, and a panel of chef judges

Gordon Ramsay continues his march toward eventually programming all 15 hours of Fox’s primetime schedule. (WATCH OUT, SEACREST.)

Fox has confirmed a summer premiere date for Ramsay’s latest food-centric entry, the U.S. adaptation of U.K. hit “Masterchef.” Show will bow on Thursday, July 29 at 9 p.m. — behind Ramsay’s “Hell’s Kitchen.” (Ramsay is also behind Fox’s “Kitchen Nightmares.”)

Ramsay will be joined by restaurateur/wine maker Joe Bastianich and four-star chef Graham Elliot Bowles to coach contestants and serve on the show’s judging panel.

“Masterchef” follows a collection of amateur chefs and looks to turn them into culinary masters. Contestants compete head-to-head to create dishes.

“Masterchef” comes from Reveille, Shine TV and One Potato Two Potato and is based on a format created by Franc Roddam and Shine TV.
