FROM THE PRODUCERS OF CHOPPED AND SURVIVOR COMES NO KITCHEN REQUIRED

Adventure cooking competition series is BBC AMERICA's first primetime original

BBC AMERICA's new original adventure cooking competition series, No Kitchen Required, follows three chefs as they are dropped into the most exotic and remote places on earth. There they must work with the locals to hunt, fish and forage for ingredients to create locally-inspired meals that will be judged by the communities. The three fearless chefs are Michelin-starred New York restaurateur Michael Psilakis, first ever Chopped Grand Champion chef Madison Cowan, who has roots in London, Detroit and Jamaica, and elite personal chef from New Zealand, Kayne Raymond. The trio leave the comforts of their kitchens as they are dropped into ten locations around the world including Dominica, New Zealand, Belize, Fiji, Chiang Dao - Thailand, Koh Lanta - Thailand, Hawaii, New Mexico, Louisiana and Florida. The series is hosted by British presenter Dr. Shini Somara (BBC's The One Show, BBC World News' The Health Show), who joins the chefs on the adventure. BBC AMERICA's No Kitchen Required premieres Tuesday, April 3, 10:00pm ET/PT.

Integrating themselves in the communities, the chefs are exposed to all of the flavors and traditions of the locals. Challenged with the task of putting their own spin on the traditional cuisine, they are eagerly guided by locals who demonstrate the best techniques for catching their protein, including diving for crayfish and crabs, hunting for iguana with a slingshot, using a bow and arrow to hunt turkey and spear fishing for trout. It's up to the chefs to combine their skills with the techniques and flavors of the locals to create a delectable feast for their hosts in just three hours. While all three chefs must face the hardships of the environment, only one can win the vote of their toughest critics - the locals.

Executive producer/director Chachi Senior (Chopped, Rocco's Dinner Party) says: "No Kitchen Required is definitely the first of its kind. We're introducing the viewing audience to cultures they may not be familiar with and using food as the vehicle for them to learn about these cultures. Along the way they get to engage in a rocking adventure through the eyes of our chefs."

"No Kitchen Required completely redefines what reality television can and should do," commented executive producer Kevin Greene (Survivor). "In the process of combining cooking and extreme adventure, we documented amazing stories that will keep viewers riveted and wondering what's going to happen next. I feel lucky to have shared the experience with the team at Notional and BBC AMERICA."

No Kitchen Required joins BBC AMERICA's stable of all-new original programming, along with Richard Hammond's Crash Course, Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan and scripted drama Copper, which all premiere later this year.
