Fans of the beloved cooking competition show The Great British Bake Off were shaken to their reality TV-watching core when it was announced the show would be moving from its home on the BBC to another station for the next season. This move prompted the exit of three of the show's four hosts. However, those wary about the future of the cheeky competition might have hope for a new television obsession– created by the same people who oversaw the production of Bake Off itself.
The drama around the baking competition first began when it was announced the show would be moving to Britain's Channel 4 after the BBC was unable to come up with the $33 million annual fee for its airing rights. Now, the creation department at the publically funded network has announced a new cooking showdown for which they would own the rights: The Big Family Cooking Challenge.

The new show, which has yet to cast judges or begin production, will run for 12 episodes and focus on family teams of amateur cooks in their own homes facing different culinary challenges from week-to-week. Just like Bake Off before it, one family will be eliminated each week based on the quality of the food until one surname reins supreme.
