Nine Original Series to Be Featured

Fox will feature four nights of original programming this summer care of series “Mental Samurai” (season premiere on Tuesday, May 25), “Crime Scene Kitchen” (Wednesday, May 26, season premiere), spin-off “Hell’s Kitchen: Young Guns” (Monday, May 31, series premiere), “LEGO Masters” (Tuesday, June 1, season premiere), spin-off “Masterchef: Legends” (Wednesday, June 2, series premiere) and “Beat Shazam” (Thursday, June 3, season premiere). These shows join the lineup alongside the previously announced series premiere of animated comedy “Housebroken” and the second season time-period premiere of animated “Duncanville” (May 31).

Additionally, the modern take on the classic drama “Fantasy Island” will premiere this August. Additional details to be announced.

“Mental Samurai”, hosted by Rob Lowe (“9-1-1: Lone Star”), will have a two-hour season two premiere on Tuesday, May 25 before making its time period premiere on Tuesday, June 1 at 9 p.m. ET. The series is a combination of game show, sporting event and thrill ride, in which contestants mentally battle each other – and a ticking clock – as they attempt to stay focused and answer a wide variety of fun and interactive

Produced by Fox Alternative Entertainment and Fly on the Wall and hosted by actor and comedian Joel McHale, “Crime Scene Kitchen” is a culinary guessing game in which bakers are tasked with decoding what type of dessert was made, when all that’s left are the crumbs, flour trails and a few elusive clues. They must then recreate the recipe for celebrity judges, chef Curtis Stone and cake artist Yolanda Gampp, who will determine how closely their sweet treat matches the missing dessert – and how good it tastes!

“Hell’s Kitchen: Young Guns” will feature Chef Gordon Ramsay back in Las Vegas as 18 aspiring chefs from across the country and all aged 23 years old or younger at the start of the competition will challenge Lady Luck in the hopes of winning big.

Animated “Housebroken” features the voices of Lisa Kudrow, Tony Hale, Will Forte, Sam Richardson and Clea DuVall. And “MasterChef: Legends” with Gordon Ramsay, chef Aarón Sánchez and restaurateur Joe Bastianich invites the most respected, iconic culinary legends, including Emeril Lagasse, Paula Deen, Roy Choi, Nancy Silverton and Morimoto to raise the “steaks” of the competition.

This August, Fox travels to “Fantasy Island”, with an all-new version of the classic show. From Liz Craft and Sarah Fain (“The 100,” “The Shield,” “Lie to Me”), the reboot takes place at a luxury resort, where literally any fantasy requested by guests is fulfilled, although they rarely turn out as expected.
