Channel 4-owned UK free-to-air channel E4 is preparing to launch a celebrity-focused culinary competition series, Celebrity Cooking School (w/t), set to air in 2022.

The 8 x 60-minute series aims to test a group of kitchen-shy celebs who will be tested “emotionally and physically,” working both solo and in pairs, in an intensive cooking crash course that will have them competing in the kitchen against their fellow celebs in a series of challenges.

Celebrity Cooking School is coproduced by Sony Pictures Television’s Electric Ray and Motion Content Group, with Meredith Chambers executive producing for Electric Ray and Martin Oxley for Motion Content Group. The series was commissioned for E4 by factual entertainment commissioning editor Vivienne Molokwu, E4 commissioning editor Mel Bezalel and head of youth and digital Karl Warner. Sony Pictures Television will distribute the format worldwide.

“In this glossy new celebrity cooking show with a reality twist, we’re welcoming those whose cooking past is littered with culinary catastrophes, but it’s not all about seeing them fail (although there will be some hilarious hiccups), it’s about showing them and our young viewers that the joys of cooking aren’t actually beyond their reach,” said Channel 4′s Molokwu in a release.

Added Motion Ray’s Chambers: “This show is for everyone who can’t boil an egg and would love to see funny celebs falling apart in the kitchen just like them. But in the end, we predict some of our stars will be pulling something surprisingly delicious out of their oven.”
