Fox has ordered “The F Word,” a live cooking-variety series starring Gordon Ramsay, based on his U.K. show of the same name.

“The F Word” will feature foodie families competing in a cooking competition in which they must impress not just Ramsay, but celebrity guests. The show will also feature Ramsay talking with VIPs, doing live remotes with guests from across the country, and appearing in field segments with fans and culinary experts.

The show is set to premiere in 2017.

“Gordon Ramsay is not only one of the biggest names in the culinary world, but his expertise, combined with his larger-than-life personality, also make for genuine event television,” said David Madden, entertainment president, Fox Broadcasting Co. “Gordon Ramsay stands tall in the line of great Fox stars, those unpredictable originals whom you simply can’t afford to miss, and ‘The F Word’ could come from no one but Gordon. Let’s face it, with Gordon live on television, the phrase ‘anything can happen’ takes on a whole new meaning.”

“The F Word” is the first show from Ramsay’s new company Studio Ramsay. It is produced by Studio Ramsay and All3 America and executive produced by Ramsay, Greg Lipstone, Layla Smith, and Chris Brogden.
