First news from the TEN launch is trickling in….
Big Brother is to be replaced by a 10 week local version of a BBC series, MasterChef Australia.
FremantleMedia will produce the series to air six nights a week.
The show has seen a number of format changes in the UK but essentially involves amateurs cooking including inventing a dish from scratch in 50 minutes, working a lunchtime shift at a busy restaurant, cooking a final meal of two courses, with ingredients of the contestants’ choice in one hour etc. It originally ran from 1990 to 2001 and was revived in 2005 with two judges.
Rush has also been approved for a second series.
Bondi Rescue is back.
Guerrilla Gardeners and Recruits are also announced.
More to come….
