It’s all about the taste: Commercial broadcaster SAT.1 secured the German rights for a local remake of cooking competition “The Taste”. Premiering prime time in Fall 2013, RedSeven Entertainment produces the German version.
Originally commissioned by ABC, “The Taste” scored the channel’s highest debut in two years. The US version features famed foodies Nigella Lawson, Anthony Bourdain, Brian Malarkey and Ludo Lefebvre, a distinguished panel of judges searching for America’s most skilled cook.
Nicolas Paalzow, Managing Director SAT.1 says “‘The Taste’ is the hottest new food entertainment show at the moment. And it is only the beginning: This amazing cooking competition will kick off a whole new line-up of spectacular food shows on SAT.1.”
Henrik Pabst, Senior Vice President International Format Acquisition: “‘The Taste’ combines great entertainment with an electrifying competition and the love for food. I am sure this unique mixture will melt on the tongue of every food loving German.”
Created by Kinetic Content, Red Arrows US production company, ‘The Taste’ is executive-produced by Chris Coelen, Matilda Zoltowski, Emma Conway, Anthony Bourdain and Nigella Lawson. Sales of “The Taste” include CTV for Canada, Australia’s Nine Network and M6 in France.
