It might be hard to believe that headline, given that Ramsay currently stars in four — count ‘em — shows on Fox: Kitchen Nightmares, Hell’s Kitchen, Hotel Hell, and MasterChef. But, according to the Post — which shares an owner with the network — Fox head Kevin Reilly passed on an American version of Ramsay’s British show Gordon Behind Bars, a show “in which burglars, drug dealers and other nonviolent offenders run a small food business inside a jail.” But the show may yet grace our shores: Ramsay’s free to shop the project around to other networks.
