MIPTV Spotlight: Parade


CANNES: MasterChef Australia alums Andy Allen and Ben Milbourne serve up a multiplatform adventure down under in Parade’s Andy & Ben Eat Australia.

“Food just got cool,” says Matthew Ashcroft, the CEO of Parade. “Andy and Ben are back to discover their version of Australia’s menu from the ground up” as they explore the eating culture in Oz. “Andy & Ben Eat Australia is real, raw and outlandish.”

Parade’s MIPTV slate also includes Chris Humfrey’s Animal Instinct, which sees the eccentric Aussie set out on a journey of discovery to understand how important it is to protect every living creature. In the six-part Around the World with Manu Feildel, the titular host travels the route of Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days and sees whether he can do what Phileas Fogg did on only $20,000.
