Awhile back it was announced that Magical Elves, the company behind Top Chef, is bringing a new Amazing Race–style cooking-competition show, Around the World in 80 Plates, to Bravo. Now a release from Bravo indicates that Commander in Chef is also on the horizon. No host has been named, but here’s the pitch.
COMMANDER IN CHEF (wt)
This self-contained, weekly one-hour competition series tests established chefs with a series of intense culinary challenges before a live studio audience. The chefs must survive five consecutive head-to-head battles, ultimately taking on the chef host in a final showdown. The longer they stay in the game, the more money they can win. But with just one single defeat, they are out. This series is being developed by Stone & Co. Entertainment with executive producer Scott Stone.
Think of it as Iron Chef meets The Next Iron Chef meets Top Chef meets Top Chef Masters meets Hell’s Kitchen meets Throwdown meets Chopped.
