BBC America has greenlit a new adventure cooking series, No Kitchen Required, to debut next spring.
No Kitchen Required will see three chefs -- Michael Psilakis, Madison Cowan and Kayne Raymond -- dropped into 10 different locations including Thailand, Belize, Trinidad and Tobago, Jamaica, New Zealand and Louisiana Bayou to work with the locals to collect ingredients to make locally-inspired cuisine. Each chef's entree will be judged by the local community.
"No Kitchen Required is a unique hybrid food/travel/adventure show that gives our audience fascinating insights into diverse cultures, making it a perfect fit for the BBC America brand and an exciting addition to our ever-expanding original programming slate," said Perry Simon, general manager, channels, BBCA, in announcing the pick-up.
The series will be produced by Notional, with Kevin Greene and Notional's Chachi Senior and Dave Noll serving as executive producers.
