ProductionEdit

DevelopmentEdit

In June 2018, ABC acquired the rights to the Australian cooking reality competition television series Family Food Fight and ordered 8 episodes. Cookbook author and food personality Ayesha Curry serves as both host and one of the judges, and executive produces alongside Robert Flutie, Shab Azma, DJ Nurre, Georgie Hurford-Jones, and Faye Stapleton. The series is produced by Endemol Shine North America and Yardie Girl Productions. It features eight American families facing off in high-pressure cooking challenges inspired by real home cooking and family food traditions to determine which is the country's top food family and win a grand prize of $100,000.[11][12] Open casting calls were held in July in Los Angeles, California, and in August in Chicago, Illinois and New York, New York. Online video submissions were also accepted.[13] In October 2018, Cat Cora and Graham Elliot were announced as judges alongside Curry.[14]

FilmingEdit

Production began at the end of October in Los Angeles.[15]
