LONDON — Jamie Oliver’s Fresh One Productions has been given the greenlight to produce a spin on its live-action kids cooking series “First Class Chefs” for the Disney Channel U.K. and Ireland.

The new show, “First Class Chefs – Family Style,” will air in short form across multiple Disney digital platforms including disneychannel.co.uk, Disney Channel You Tube and Disney Life and will also air later on the Disney Channel this fall.

The new season will consist of 10 five-minute episodes, where first season contestants aged 10-12 will return with a family member as their teammate. Two teams will go head-to-head with just £5 ($6.45) to spend and one hour to prepare and create a healthy and tasty meal.

“First Class Chefs” was the highest-rated children’s cookery show on pay-TV in 2015.
