BBC AMERICA MARCH HIGHLIGHTS

NO KITCHEN REQUIRED - WORLD PREMIERE

BBC AMERICA's new original adventure cooking competition series, No Kitchen Required, follows three chefs as they are dropped into a remote location where each must work with the locals to hunt, forage and collect ingredients to create a locally-inspired meal that will be judged by the community. The three fearless chefs are award-winning New York restaurateur Michael Psilakis, first ever Chopped Grand Champion chef Madison Cowan, who has roots in London, Detroit and Jamaica, and New Zealand chef Kayne Raymond. The trio leave the comforts of their kitchens and are dropped into ten locations around the world including Belize, Dominica, New Zealand, Fiji, Chiang Mai, Thailand, Phuket, Thailand, Hawaii, Arizona, Louisiana and Florida. The series is hosted by British presenter Shini Somara (BBC's One Show, BBC World News' The Health Show), who joins the chefs on the adventure. The world premiere of BBC AMERICA's No Kitchen Required is Tuesday, March 20, 10:00pm ET/PT. Twitter: #NoKitchenRequired

DRAMAVILLE'S WHITECHAPEL - US PREMIERE

The critically acclaimed drama, Whitechapel, returns with three distinctive, dark and chilling crime stories. In season one, the intrepid team tracked down a blood-thirsty Jack the Ripper copycat and faced off against the gangster brutality of a new generation of Krays. But now they are faced with a whole new set of challenges... The new season will find Detective Inspector Joseph Chandler (Rupert Penry-Jones), Detective Sergeant Miles (Phil Davis) and Edward Buchan (Steve Pemberton) spreading their investigations beyond the boundaries of Whitechapel, as they peel back the layers of the London's East End and its most gruesome history. The East End will once again provide fertile ground for murder, body-snatching, poisoning and grisly discoveries, as the team's present day investigations echo three hundred years of crimes committed in the city's darkest recesses. Whitechapel premieres Wednesday, March 28, 10:00pm ET/PT as part of BBC AMERICA's Dramaville. Twitter: #Whitechapel
