"Knife Fight" (TV show) on the Esquirte Network is a gritty reality cooking competition series, hosted by "Top Chef" Season 2 winner Ilan Hall, that features underground, after-hours cooking bouts between Los Angeles' most exciting chefs at The Gorbals, Hall's downtown restaurant.

Each episode features an undercard and a title bout. For each battle, two chefs go head-to-head, making at least two dishes in one hour, from a combination of two to three secret ingredients. As the chefs face off in The Gorbals' kitchen, they feel the heat as they're cheered and heckled by a rowdy crowd — including friends, neighbors and an eclectic group of celebrities, food professionals and die-hard foodies that serve as judges and timekeepers for each bout. Among them: Drew Barrymore (who also serves as executive producer), Elijah Wood, Jason Lee, Bijou Phillips and Erika Christensen, food writers Jeanne Kelly and Evan Kleiman, and Hall's "Top Chef" friends like Elia Aboumrad and Michael Voltaggio. World-renowned skateboarding photographer Giovanni Reda acts as master of ceremonies for the series.

With new contestants each week, this season features exciting and acclaimed chefs, including James Beard nominees, Food & Wine "Best New Chefs," "Top Chef" competitors, chefs who've worked at Michelin-starred restaurants, and more.

Actor and comedian Eric Wareheim ("Tim and Eric Awesome Show") and award-winning food writer/author Jeanne Kelley join Hall on the panel of judges.

"Knife Fight" is produced for Esquire Network by Flower Films and Authentic Entertainment. For Flower Films, Drew Barrymore and Nancy Juvonen are executive producers; co-executive producers are Ember Truesdell and Chris Miller. For Authentic Entertainment, Lauren Lexton, Tom Rogan and J.C. Begley are executive producers. Ilan Hall, Rich Kim and Kevin Johnston are executive producers. For Esquire Network, Matt Hanna and Laura Civiello are series network executives.
