Endemol Shine Group has inked its first international deal for the culinary competition format Family Food Fight, with American broadcaster ABC.
Endemol Shine North America will produce an eight-episode version of the hit Aussie show. The adaptation will be hosted by restaurateur and cookbook author Ayesha Curry. The format, created by Endemol Shine Australia, was developed with Channel Nine, where it is getting a second season.
Lisa Perrin, the CEO of Creative Networks at Endemol Shine Group, commented: “We are incredibly proud of Family Food Fight at Endemol Shine Group. It is a fresh, fun and diverse show that celebrates all the best aspects of a successful family-friendly format. We’re sure that the deal with ABC in the U.S. will supercharge interest in the series in other territories and look forward to seeing what the teams do with it for the ABC audience.”
Mark Fennessy, the CEO at Endemol Shine Australia, added: “We’re delighted that Family Food Fight is set to go international with a new home and partner in ABC with the very fabulous Ayesha Curry. As the second Australian series ramps up, we’re confident this is the first of many new territories taking on such a unique format that puts passionate multi-cultural and multi-generational foodie families to the test.”
