New TV show on fixing up US hotels

Chef turned U.S. television personality Gordon Ramsay is setting his sights on the hospitality industry for his new show on the Fox Broadcasting Co., tentatively dubbed “Hotel Hell.”

In a press release posted to its Facebook page, Fox says the unscripted series will feature Ramsay and a team of experts as they travel the U.S. to fix hotels, motels and bed & breakfasts.

According to the casting website, hotels, motels and bed & breakfasts can apply to be in the show if they have been open for at least a year, over overnight accommodations in at least eight guestrooms and are privately owned.

“These are stories that everyone can relate to, because virtually all of us have had a bad hotel experience that’s turned a holiday or business trip into a total disaster,” Ramsay said in a statement. “It’s time to put the hospitality industry to the test.”

Hotel Hell is Ramsay’s fourth show on Fox. The show will be produced by One Potato Two Potato Inc., which is part of the All3Media group, with Ramsay, Adeline Ramage Rooney, Patricia Llewellyn and Ben Adler on board as executive producers
