Mediapro Working with Chef José Andrés on TV Content


The Mediapro Group has entered into a creative collaboration with The ThinkFoodGroup, the restaurant and culinary company run by chef José Andrés.

The two companies will be working together to develop and potentially co-produce projects for TV. The content will primarily focus on food and is being positioned with an eye toward the international market.

Andrés has developed and starred in three series over the past few years, including the Spanish cooking program Vamos a Cocinar.

“Television has always been a natural medium for me because at my core, I am a storyteller,” said Andrés.  “My team and I tell stories in our restaurants, and TV allows us to reach so many more people. Mediapro is the perfect partner to help me and my team bring more of these stories to life, both food-focused and beyond, with their international reach and amazing resources. I am looking forward to creating some great shows with them!”

Javier Méndez, the head of content at Mediapro Group, added, “We are very excited and happy to have closed this agreement with ThinkFoodGroup. The fusion of José Andrés’ talent with our creative team is going to allow us to generate extraordinary projects and ideas that will show the transforming power of food and cooking.”
