FOX SERVES UP A SUNDAY OF FOOD AND FOOTBALL!

A Special All-New Episode of TV’s #1 New Series, NEXT LEVEL CHEF, Will Air Following the NFC Championship Game Sunday, Jan. 30 on FOX!

Gordon Ramsay Returns to FOX with an All-New Culinary Competition Series… And, for the First Time Ever, He’s Not Only a Mentor but also a Competitor

An all-new episode of Gordon Ramsay’s latest culinary competition series, NEXT LEVEL CHEF, will air immediately after the NFC Championship game Sunday, Jan. 30 (10:00-11:05 PM ET/7:00-8:05 PM PT) on FOX. In this special episode, Ramsay and his fellow mentors, Nyesha Arrington and Richard Blais, serve up a Sunday Brunch challenge, during which each remaining chef must create a next-level dish that incorporates both sweet and savory elements in just 45 minutes. Find out who will rise to the occasion and who ends up with egg on their face when one aspiring chef goes home.

Following this special episode, NEXT LEVEL CHEF will continue to air in its regular time period, Wednesdays (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.

NEXT LEVEL CHEF is the next evolution in cooking competitions, as award-winning chef Gordon Ramsay has designed a one-of-a-kind culinary gauntlet, set on an iconic stage like you’ve never seen. Over three stories high, each floor contains a stunningly different kitchen. From the glistening top floor to the challenging bottom of the basement, the ingredients will match the environment, because Ramsay believes the true test of a great chef is not only what they can do in the best of circumstances, but what kind of magic they can create in the worst! With a level playing field, Ramsay has opened up the competition and scoured the country for the very best line cooks, home chefs, social media stars, food truck owners and everything in between, all competing against one another with the goal of finding the food world’s newest superstar!

Joined by two elite names in the food world, chefs Nyesha Arrington and Richard Blais, Ramsay is not only a mentor but a competitor! And these three leave no stone unturned, as they each recruit a group of the talented chefs and take them under their wings. Ramsay and his friends will attempt to bring out the very best in their cooks, as they all try to find “the one.” Although he now sits unrivaled at the top of the culinary world, Ramsay started at the bottom, washing dishes in a local takeout restaurant. He firmly believes that as long as a chef has the drive, talent and perseverance, he or she can make that climb to the top. Creativity, consistency and cunning are the recipe for success to make it to the NEXT LEVEL, as the competitors adapt to the challenges waiting for them. Only one can walk away with a life-changing $250,000 grand prize and become a NEXT LEVEL CHEF!

In Live + 7 Day ratings, the series premiere of FOX’s NEXT LEVEL CHEF, featuring Gordon Ramsay, delivered at 1.8/11 L7, marking this season’s #1 program debut, FOX’s #1 launch in more than a year and FOX’s #1 post-NFL unscripted premiere in more than seven years.

Gordon Ramsay, Lisa Edwards and Matt Cahoon serve as executive producers NEXT LEVEL CHEF.

All episodes of NEXT LEVEL CHEF are available on FOX Entertainment’s free-streaming platform, Tubi.

Original Documentary Special “Suburban Nightmare: Chris Watts” Premieres Today on Tubi

[via press release from FOX]
A HUSBAND AND FATHER DOES THE UNTHINKABLE
TUBI’S LATEST ORIGINAL, “SUBURBAN NIGHTMARE: CHRIS WATTS,” BEGINS STREAMING FOR FREE TODAY

FILM INFORMATION:

When Shannan Watts and her two young daughters disappear in August 2018, everyone looks for signs of trouble in the picture-perfect life she and her husband, Chris, prolifically projected through their social media. Any hope of a happy ending comes crashing down when the 33-year-old husband makes a shocking confession, admitting he strangled his pregnant wife and their two little girls before secretly disposing of their bodies at a remote work site. Now, the Tubi two-hour special SUBURBAN NIGHTMARE: CHRIS WATTS explores this shocking, ripped-from-the-headlines true story in gripping detail. Supported by a trove of the Watts’ own social media posts, news and archival materials, as well as a chorus of key voices with intimate knowledge of the case (the investigators who worked it, the journalists who covered it and the close friends who suffered the heartbreak), and buttressed by a cadre of expert insight (psychologists who can unpack the seemingly incomprehensible actions, and social media experts/influencers who can analyze the double-edged sword known as the internet), the true story behind one of the most unspeakable crimes ever committed is revealed. From FOX Alternative Entertainment and Streetcar Entertainment, the film is executive-produced by Robert Twilley (“Snapped”) and Michael Welsh (“Drug Lords”), along with co-executive producer Maggie Mock (“Fresh Meat: Jeffrey Dahmer”).

ALL-NEW SINGLE-CAM COMEDY “WELCOME TO FLATCH,” FROM WRITER AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCER JENNY BICKS





ALL-NEW SINGLE-CAM COMEDY “WELCOME TO FLATCH,” FROM WRITER AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCER JENNY BICKS AND DIRECTOR AND EXECUTIVE PRODUCER PAUL FEIG, PREMIERES THURSDAY, MARCH 17, ON FOX
FOX To Release First Seven Episodes on Premiere Day,
Exclusively on Hulu, FOX Now and On Demand

All-new single-cam docu-com WELCOME TO FLATCH premieres Thursday, March 17 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. That same day, FOX also will unlock the first seven episodes of the series across non-linear platforms, including Hulu, Fox Now and On Demand.

Inspired by BBC Studios’ BAFTA-winning BBC format, “This Country,” WELCOME TO FLATCH is a half-hour comedy written and executive-produced by Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Jenny Bicks (“Sex and the City,” “The Greatest Showman”) and directed and executive-produced by DGA Award winner and Emmy Award nominee Paul Feig (“The Office,” “Bridesmaids”), who also wrote two episodes.

When a documentary crew sets out to explore the lives of residents in a small American town – their dreams, their concerns – they stumble upon the midwestern town of Flatch, which is made up of many eccentric personalities. It’s a place you want to visit and maybe even stay. If there was a decent motel. Which there is not.

The documentary crew finds worthy subjects in cousins and best friends KELLY MALLET (newcomer Holmes) and LLOYD “SHRUB” MALLET (Sam Straley, “The Kids Are Alright”) who let the documentary crew in on their lives and local current events. JOSEPH “FATHER JOE” BINGHOFFER (Seann William Scott, “Lethal Weapon,” “American Pie” franchise) is the local minister who also attempts to guide Kelly and Shrub. He moved to Flatch with his former girlfriend, CHERYL PETERSON (Aya Cash, “The Boys,” “You’re The Worst”), who is the editor of the local newspaper, “The Flatch Patriot.” Other Flatch residents include MICKEY ST. JEAN (newcomer Justin Linville), who relentlessly attempts to become Shrub’s best friend; Kelly’s frenemy, NADINE GARCIA-PARNEY (Taylor Ortega, “Succession”), who runs the Flatch Historical Society; and MANDY MATTHEWS (newcomer Krystal Smith), a magnetic force of nature who lives life on her own terms.

WELCOME TO FLATCH is produced by Lionsgate, BBC Studios’ Los Angeles production arm and FOX Entertainment. It is executive-produced by Perkins Street Productions’ Bicks, Feigco Entertainment’s Feig, BBC Studios’ Angie Stephenson and Charlie Cooper and Daisy May Cooper, who created the original BBC series.

The first seven episodes of WELCOME TO FLATCH will be released on Hulu, Fox Now and On Demand on Thursday, March 17 at 12:01 AM. On Demand episodes are available for customers of AT&T TV, Cox, DIRECTV, DISH, Hulu Live, Optimum, Spectrum, Verizon FiOS, Xfinity, YouTube TV and many more.

FOX ENTERTAINMENT AND ZEALOT INTERACTIVE FORM TECHNOLOGY PARTNERSHIP





FOX ENTERTAINMENT AND ZEALOT INTERACTIVE FORM TECHNOLOGY PARTNERSHIP ON FOX’S ALL-NEW COUNTRY MUSIC DRAMA, “MONARCH”
Interactive Guitar Education System to Feature Original Songs from Upcoming Drama,
Beginning with Today’s Release of “The Card You Gamble”

MONARCH to Premiere Sunday, January 30, Immediately Following NFC Championship Game

FOX Entertainment and Zealot Interactive, creator of leading interactive guitar education system Fret Zealot, have formed a technology partnership on FOX’s upcoming new drama, MONARCH.

Under the agreement, Zealot Interactive will develop interactive guitar lessons, vis-à-vis its streaming video service with instructor-led sessions and patented guitar neck instructional LED device, for original songs and select covers featured in MONARCH. The multi-generational musical drama stars Academy Award winner Susan Sarandon (“Thelma & Louise,” “Dead Man Walking,” “Feud”), multi-Platinum country music star and three-time Academy of Country Music Award winner Trace Adkins and Golden Globe winner Anna Friel (“Pushing Daisies,” “Books of Blood,” “The Girlfriend Experience”).

Fret Zealot will unveil its first MONARCH song lesson today to coincide with the release of “The Card You Gamble,” written by Hillary Lee Lindsey, Lori McKenna and Liz Rose. Throughout the series’ inaugural season, Fret Zealot will unveil additional lessons of select songs from the show, including those specifically written for MONARCH and cover versions of other artists’ work.

The official MONARCH play-along to learn songs from the series is available via the Fret Zealot app for Android, iOS and on Chrome web browsers as part of an all-access subscription for $14.99 per month. MONARCH fans who subscribe to the service will receive the first month free of charge by signing up at fretzealot.com/monarch and receive $20 off any Fret Zealot LED system purchase, using the promo code “MONARCH.”

MONARCH is a Texas-sized, multi-generational musical drama about the Romans, a powerful family that rules the country music industry. The series, 100% owned by FOX Entertainment, will debut with a special two-night event beginning Sunday, Jan. 30, immediately following the NFC CHAMPIONSHIP, and continuing on Tuesday, Feb. 1 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT).

“Interactivity is an important tool to attract and engage with fans; and Fret Zealot’s popular guitar lesson system is a perfect way to promote MONARCH and the amazing music that will be featured throughout the series,” said Laura Caraccioli, Senior Vice President, Head of Strategic Creative Partnerships, of FOX Entertainment.

Zealot Interactive CEO Shaun Masavage added, “Our data and research show budding guitarists learn five times faster with the Fret Zealot system. The combination of streaming video and LED technologies help them play the songs they like sooner and increases their desire to keep learning guitar. In addition to the songs from MONARCH, Fret Zealot users have access to over 3,000 video lessons.”

In MONARCH, the Romans are headed by the insanely talented, but tough as nails Queen of Country Music DOTTIE CANTRELL ROMAN (Sarandon). Along with her beloved husband, ALBIE (Adkins), Dottie has created a country music dynasty. But even though the Roman name is synonymous with authenticity, the very foundation of their success is a lie. And when their reign as country royalty is put in jeopardy, heir to the crown NICOLETTE “NICKY” ROMAN (Friel) will stop at nothing to protect her family’s legacy, while ensuring her own quest for stardom.

MONARCH is produced by FOX Entertainment. Screenwriter Melissa London Hilfers serves as creator, writer and executive producer. Jon Feldman (“Designated Survivor,” “The Newsroom”) is an executive producer and showrunner. Gail Berman and Hend Baghdady (The Jackal Group) and top music manager Jason Owen (Sandbox Entertainment) also serve as executive producers. Jason Ensler (“The Passage”) directed and serves as a producer on the series premiere.

About Zealot Interactive
