*Every family has that someone who can really get down in the kitchen.  It’s usually Moms and TV One is premiering its first cooking competition called, “My Momma Throws Down.”

Premiering Friday,  May 4 from 8-9pm (Eastern), watch the best of the best matriarchs battle it out in the kitchen for the title of queen of home cuisine.

The show will be hosted by comedian and actor, Ralph Harris and produced by Triage Entertainment, the creators of “Iron Chef of America.”

The competition is fierce, as each mother first provides her signature dish for both the judges and her adversary to rate, then races against the clock to create an entire meal on a moment’s notice. The families also play an important role throughout the episode, as they are presented with various challenges that can add or delete minutes from their mother’s cooking time. From a trivia quiz, to a special “smack down” challenge, to a “blind” taste-test – the results of which count towards the judges’ final decision – the families do all they can to help their mothers win.

“At its core, ‘My Momma Throws Down’ is a true celebration of the matriarch of the family, placing her passion, skills, down-home expertise, and reputation as a great cook on the line for all of America to witness,” said TV One president and CEO Wonya Lucas.
