Fox International Channels Italy is producing a local version of Gordon Ramsay’s culinary format Kitchen Nightmares.

The 10 x 60-minutes series is being produced by Endemol Italia and will air on the female-skewing entertainment channel Fox Life in April under the title Cucine da incubo Italia.

Italian chef Antonio Cannavacciuolo will star as the troubleshooting host who visits troubled restaurants and attempts to turn around the business in a week’s time.

Kitchen Nightmares is the latest format Fox International Channels has brought to Italy. The network has also aired local versions of unscripted series such as Wife Swap, Nanny 911, Sex Education Show and Honey We are Killing the Kids.
