UK buys My Kitchen Rules format
Sky Living HD has purchased the format rights to MKR from Seven.
The Reality series is a Seven-devised format, a revamp of its predecessor, My Restaurant Rules.
The British Pay TV channel also nets the rights to the Australian version to screen in coming months.
The Australian reports the UK version will be hosted by chef and author Lorraine Pascale and produced by Boundless, part of FremantleMedia UK.
Seven’s Head of Production Brad Lyons said, “With My Kitchen Rules, the show is different to the competition because it is real people at home cooking what they want. In the UK Sky Living saw that and recognised that the show operates on a parochial level and fulfils the need to have a point of difference to be a success.”
The local version continues to go gang-busters for Seven and is even knocking over the competition in New Zealand.
