BBC America into cooking competition

Notional-produced 'No Kitchen' to bow in spring

BBC America is dipping its spoon into the red-hot cooking competition arena.

The cabler has ordered 10 episdoes of “No Kitchen Required,” an original unscripted series that sends three chefs out to remote locations around the world to prepare meals that will be judged by locals.

The series is part of BBC America’s push, under g.m. Perry Simon, to serve up home-grown originals along with its Brit imports from the Beeb and other outlets. “No Kitchen Required” hails from Notional, the shingle behind Food Network hit “Chopped,” and will be exec produced by Kevin Greene, Chachi Senior and Dave Noll.

Series will feature New York restauranteur Michael Psilakis, “Chopped” champion winner Madison Cowan and New Zealand chef Kayne Raymond. The three will be dispatched to exotic locales ranging from Thailand to Louisiana bayous and challenged to cook a meal using local ingredients, food-gathering and cooking techniques. The final dishes will be judged by community members who will crown one winner.

BBC America is poised to roll out a wave of originals starting Dec. 3 with the bow of comedy panel show “Would You Rather…? with Graham Norton.” “No Kitchen” is targeted for a spring bow.
