It’s all about the taste at MIPCOM! Nine Network Australia has secured rights to cooking competition show “The Taste” for both a local remake as well as for the US version.
Yan He, Regional Sales Director Australia at Red Arrow International, says, “I am absolutely thrilled ‘The Taste’ has been picked up by Nine Network. ‘The Taste’ truly takes cooking shows to the next level – the feedback from buyers here at MIPCOM is terrific.”
In the US, ABC has ordered eight episodes of “The Taste” in which famed foodies Nigella Lawson and Anthony Bourdain head a distinct panel of four judges to pit America’s most skilled cooks against one another.
“The Taste” was created by Kinetic Content, Red Arrow’s US production company led by Chris Coelen.
