Food Network has given a straight-to-series (13 episode) order to “Family Food Showdown,” which is described as a unique, family-centric culinary competition. Hosted by Valerie Bertinelli, the upcoming series pits one family against another in a fast-paced, action-packed culinary competition that unfolds over three rounds of cooking challenges in which earned advantages, team strategy and family dynamics up the ante in the final round of the contest.
Each episode culminates with a $10,000 grand prize awarded to the winning family that must first endure twists, turns and the unpredictable but always entertaining aspect of family members communicating, collaborating, and cooking on the clock in a high-stakes showdown. “Family Food Showdown” will debut at an undisclosed time in 2019.
Along with the new series order, the network announced it has reached an agreement with Bertinelli which spans multiple projects in daytime and primetime. Included are new episodes of “Kids Baking Championship.”
