10 Orders MasterChef: Dessert Masters & Location, Location, Location


The Banijay formats MasterChef: Dessert Masters and Location, Location, Location have both been ordered for local treatments by Australia’s 10.

Produced by Endemol Shine Australia (a Banijay company), MasterChef: Dessert Masters sees a dozen of the nation’s sugar-hit specialists face off against each other in pastry-themed challenges set in the famed MasterChef Australia kitchen. The show is slated for a 2023 launch.

Daniel Monaghan, senior VP of Paramount ANZ, said: “MasterChef Australia remains much loved by Australian audiences and we are thrilled to expand the brand in the sweetest way possible with MasterChef: Dessert Masters.

“The new series will give pastry chefs a chance to take out the MasterChef: Dessert Masters title and we can’t wait to see what they create.”

Marty Benson, director of content at Endemol Shine Australia, said: “We are incredibly excited to bring this world first, new addition to the MasterChef family to life for 10 in 2023.

“Watching Australia’s best dessert and pastry chefs compete in the MasterChef kitchen in MasterChef: Dessert Masters will deliver some of the greatest sweet treats we have ever seen on Australian TV.”

Endemol Shine Australia is also working on the local version of Location, Location, Location, in which trusted property experts come to the rescue of desperate house hunters. It, too, is set for 2023.

Monaghan said: “Location, Location, Location is a well-loved format and we are thrilled to bring it back to Australian free-to-air audiences.

“This series will be shot in Melbourne and Sydney, where property is highly sought after, and we can’t wait to help everyday Australians find their next home, tree change, sea change and more.”

Peter Newman, CEO of Endemol Shine Australia, said: “We’re immensely proud
and excited to see Location, Location, Location on 10 in 2023.

“The show has a wonderful heritage in Australia and overseas, and we look forward to watching as our experts help make our contributors property dreams come true.”
