Gordon Ramsay and James May head to BBC America in dual food-and-drink series

Oz and James' Big Wine Adventure
Gordon Ramsay of “Hell’s Kitchen” and James May of “Top Gear” are headed to BBC America in new-to-the-U.S. series for foodies.

The cabler, with a reach of 68 million homes, has acquired U.S. broadcasting rights for 11 hourlong episodes of “Ramsay’s Best Restaurant,” in which the popular TV chef travels around Blighty in search of the best place to dine.

In addition, BBC America procured three seasons (22 halfhours in all) of “Oz and James’s Big Wine Adventure,” in which May joins wine critic Oz Clarke (pictured above) on a France sojourn that takes them to local events, markets and festivities. A worthy quote from a press release supporting the show: “Oz’s mission (in season one) is to educate and enthuse James about French wine while James’ mission is not to get too drunk and by the end of the trip be able to walk into a wine shop and buy something good on a budget.”

Season two takes “Oz and James” to California wine country, while season three (called “Oz and James Drink to Britain”) returns the pair to the U.K.

“Ramsay’s Best Restaurant” premiered in Britain in September, while “Oz and James” has been on in the U.K. since 2006.
