U.S. net FYI is getting high-end chefs out of their kitchens and into food trucks in the forthcoming series Late Nite Chef Fight, which is set to debut on November 22.

Based on a real after-hours chef competition in Las Vegas, the 8 x 60-minute series sees two top Vegas chefs competing against one another in a food truck they have never worked in before, in front of an audience. Over the course of a challenge, the chefs must create three unique dishes in three rounds, which are then presented to two expert judges.

The series’ hosts will include athlete and wellness expert Laila Ali (pictured), and chef and restaurateur Vic “Vegas” Moea. Guest judges will include Spike Mendelsohn, Michael Chernow, Casey Lane and Chris Oh.

Late Nite Chef Fight will premiere on November 22 at 9 p.m. EST/PST.

The series is produced by Relativity Television and The Jay & Tony Show. The latter’s Jay Blumenfield and Tony Marsh, and Relativity’s Tom Forman will serve as executive producers on the show, along with FYI’s Gena McCarthy and Toby Faulkner.
