Keshet International’s Help! I Can’t Cook has been optioned by Shine France, the local producers of Masterchef, prior to its official MIPCOM launch.
“The culinary competition is definitely a genre that we know very well at Shine France. Help! I Can’t Cook fits into the DNA of our programming perfectly: a great quality entertainment show combined with ‘feel-good TV’. We look forward to working on the project” says Thierry Lachkar, CEO Shine France.
The premiere of Help! I Can’t I Cook on Keshet Broadcasting was the second highest-rated original reality launch ever in Israel (after Rising Star) and the highest of 2014 peaking with a 46.2% share. The show has held its audience week on week with its fourth episode on Saturday 4 October attracting an average of 41% share – an increase in ratings of 16% for the slot year on year.
The next generation of reality-cooking shows has a delicious and hilarious flavor. Take 10 “kitchenophobe” celebrities, who haven’t the slightest clue about cooking, mix in some large egos and diehard competitive streaks, add a sprinkling of spicy tasks, and a lot of star quality. Stir it all up and bake for three weeks in a closed doors culinary institute and you get Help! I Can’t Cook the new hit recipe for a stand-out reality show: food, celebs and comedy. Best served hot and hilarious.
