DRG has lined up a slew of international deal for food series My Swedish Kitchen. The international distributor has struck deals for the Rachel Khoo fronted series with NHK in Japan, RTL in Germany, AMC in Central and Eastern Europe, SBS in Australia, Choice TV in New Zealand, CBC in Canada, and with BBC Studios for its pan-Asia footprint.
My Swedish Kitchen follows Khoo as she puts her own twist on traditional Swedish dishes in the kitchen of a ‘stuga’, an old-style wooden house. Across the eight episodes, Rachel spends time immersed in nature in the local countryside, making the most of her new way of life, as well as meeting with food producers and other local craftspeople. There’s also a sprinkling of witty anecdotes, charming stories and entertaining observations about her new homeland. Splay one are producing.
“DRG’s early involvement with co-commissioning this series points to our strong belief that this gorgeously shot programme would be a hit. We are delighted to have concluded these early deals with such major broadcasters and are confident that many more will follow the anticipated positive ratings and reviews after transmission”. said Elin Thomas, DRG’s Executive Vice-President of Sales. “Rachel is an accessible and gently energising host, with a passion that inspires viewers to try something different. The food and culinary history of Sweden has seldom been explored in this way before, but its long-standing focus on simplicity and fresh, healthy ingredients make it a perfect choice for a contemporary lifestyle show”.
