Fremantle & Hulu Pact for Jamie: Keep Cooking and Carry On


Fremantle has secured a new deal with the streaming service Hulu to bring Jamie: Keep Cooking and Carry On to the U.S.

The series sees Jamie Oliver share easy-to-follow recipes, tips and ingredient swaps, specifically tailored for the challenging times we’re living in, with many people staying at home amid the global coronavirus pandemic. Keep Cooking and Carry On, which launched on Channel 4 in the U.K. earlier this year, will debut on Hulu in the U.S. on July 27.

Throughout the series, Oliver demonstrates how to make the most from kitchen staples and show viewers how they can be creative with whatever ingredients they have at home and whatever their budget. He offers ideas for frozen food and recipes drawn entirely from the store-cupboard to make nutritious and tasty food using simple ingredients for the whole family. He also showcases how to make a simple bread dough and pasta from scratch, as well as how to make an easy fish pie using frozen ingredients and simple egg-less brownies.

Caroline Kusser, executive VP of co-production and distribution for international at Fremantle, said: “We are proud to be partnering with Hulu to bring Jamie Oliver’s latest series to audiences across the U.S. Given the unique situation that we are experiencing, there has never been a better time to inspire viewers to get creative in the kitchen with Jamie’s fun and simple recipes. It is the perfect addition to Hulu’s extensive catalog of quality British programming.”

Samantha Beddoes, executive producer at the Jamie Oliver Group, said: “I am so excited that Keep Cooking is going to be shared with a new audience in the U.S. The series was produced extraordinarily quickly as a direct response to people looking for help in these unprecedented times. People who were looking for useful and practical advice to respond to the fluctuating availability of ingredients as well as inspiration for new ways to cook for the family. Jamie was in exactly the same boat as all of us watching, and his simple and flexible approach to cooking is just what we all need right now.”
