First LatAm Treatment for Family Food Fight


Endemol Shine Group has secured its first Latin American deal for the cooking competition show Family Food Fight, with the adaptation slated for Argentina.

Family Food Fight sees relatives compete to prepare a meal that is superior to the culinary creations of other families for a cash prize. Endemol Shine Latino has been commissioned to make a local version for Telefe. The Argentine adaptation, titled Familias Frente a Frente, Desafio en la Cocina, is now casting for broadcast later this year.

Michelle Wasserman, the senior VP of licensing and content development at Endemol Shine Latino, remarked: “Family Food Fight perfectly blends two of the ingredients that Latin Americans hold dear—family and cooking! It is a hugely warm, fun, highly spirited and addictive format, and we believe that partnered with Telefe, we have the ideal recipe for success.”
