Gordon Ramsay food series Kitchen Nightmares is to be remade in Italy after Fox International Channels Italy struck a deal for the format.
The format is distributed by Optomen International.
The Italian version of the US series will air on female skewing network Fox Life. The network has ordered the 10x1hour series from Endemol Italia and will launch it in April 2013.
The series, which will be renamed Cucine Da Incubo Italia, will star renowned Italian chef Antonino Cannavacciuolo as he visits failing restaurants and tries to bring them back to life in one week.
This is the latest international format to be brought to Italy by Fox International Channels following deals for Wife Swamp, Nanny 911, Sex Education Show and Honey We are Killing the Kids. Fox Italy has also found success with local productions including Boris, Non Pensarci, Il Mostro di Firenze and Donne Assassine.
