Food Network is cooking up more “Iron Chef America,” greenlighting production on a series that will extend the life of Kitchen Stadium.
Food Network will premiere the 10-episode skein in January. Triage Entertainment will produce in association with Food. Production will begin in Gotham Oct. 7.
The “America” specials, which premiered the weekend of April 23, collected 12 million viewers for all four hours.
Bobby Flay, Mario Batali and Masaharu Morimoto have signed on to be the American Iron Chefs. Alton Brown (“Good Eats”) will reprise his role as the resident commentator, and Kevin Brauch (Fine Living’s “Thirsty Traveler”) will report from the floor of Kitchen Stadium.
Judges on board for the series include Dana Cowin, editor-in-chief of Food and Wine magazine; Barbara Fairchild, exec editor of Bon Appetit magazine; Jeffery Steingarten, food writer for Vogue; food writer Victoria Riccardi; and Vishakha Desai, president of the Asia Society.
