BBC America cooks up ‘Chef’

Jamie Oliver to exec produce competition skein

BBC America has ordered 10 episodes of hourlong cooking competition series “Chef Race: U.K. vs U.S.,” with Jamie Oliver exec producing.

The program will follow eight British and eight American chefs as they travel from Los Angeles to New York in pursuit of a $100,000 prize. Claire Robinson will host, while Richard Corrigan (“MasterChef”) will serve as mentor and judge.

“The restaurant business is one of the toughest in the world,” Oliver said, “and to be successful in it these days takes so much more than just being able to cook. You’ve got to have a good business sense, vision, leadership and so much more. This series is the first time that anyone has really dug deep into what it takes to be successful, and it’s going to take an incredible individual to win it.”

Via his Fresh One Prods. shingle, Oliver is exec producing “Chef Race” with Amy Chacon (“The Amazing Race”), Stef Wagstaffe (“Undercover Boss”), Roy Ackerman (“Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution”), Sebastian Grant (“Lily Allen and Friends”) and Jo Ralling (“Jamie’s American Road Trip”).

BBC America is targeting a fall premiere.
