Food Network is developing Eat the Clock, a new reality series billed as a cross between The Amazing Race and an eating competition, The Hollywood Reporter reported Monday.

The tentatively-titled series would follow two teams of contestants as they race from one Los Angeles eatery to another and participate in different challenges that will see them quickly consuming various foods, according to The Reporter.

Eat the Clock's pilot is currently slated to film in the near future and it is slated to debut early next year should Food Network order the series, according to The Reporter.

Eat the Clock is produced by Pie Town Productions, the same company behind Food Network's Rachel Ray's Tasty Travels and HGTV's Design on a Dime.

Kobayashi is the most decorated contestant in recent competitive eating history, having claimed the Nathan's International July Fourth Hot Dog Eating Contest title for six consecutive years.  The event, which is broadcast annually on ESPN, has been won by Chestnut for the past two years.
