“We have such great teams and partners on these shows, and I’m really excited we’re able to offer this new opportunity to young budding chefs across the country with ‘Junior Masterchef,’” said Ramsay.  “Having my own children who love to cook, I know firsthand the skill and passion these kids can have at such a young age, and what they can do with it. It’s just extraordinary to watch them in action.”

Shine America and One Potato Two Potato are producing “Junior Masterchef.”

“Junior Masterchef” folds into a new multi-year agreement between Fox and Ramsay, whose fiery personality and cooking expertise are already leveraged in Fox programs “Masterchef,” “Hell’s Kitchen,” “Hotel Hell” and “Kitchen Nightmares.”

As a part of Ramsay’s deal, Fox has also renewed “Hell’s Kitchen” and “Masterchef,” taking “Hell’s Kitchen” to its 13th season, and “Masterchef” to its fifth and sixth.

Gordon brings an incredible level of energy and passion to each of his series that our viewers absolutely love, so we are thrilled that he will continue building his brand here on Fox,” said Fox’s alternative chief Mike Darnell. “He’s a global superstar, and the success and longevity of his unprecedented five series on our network proves that America just can’t get enough of Gordon.”
