Passion Distribution has licensed Food Network’s Private Chefs of Beverly Hills (pictured) and Cupcake Wars into numerous territories.

Private Chefs of Beverly Hills, which follows a group of chefs who serve an eccentric clientele, has been picked up by XYZ in Australia (season one and two), TV5 in Finland (season two), Fox Latin America (season one and two), AETN Pan-Asia (season two) and Living Channel New Zealand (season two).

Food Network’s Cupcake Wars has sold to XYZ in Australia (season one and two), LiTV in Asia (season one), Living Channel New Zealand (season one and two) and CJ Media Korea (season two). Passion is also currently working on an advertising-funded terrestrial slot in the UK.

The series sees four top cupcake bakers competing to make the best creations for celebrity weddings and Hollywood parties. One baker will win US$10,000.

Emma Simpkins, director of sales at Passion Distribution, said: “The appetite at MIPTV for super-sweet primetime food entertainment content was strong. With so many successful Scripps International series returning for a new season, Passion’s sales team have been able to work with broadcasters all over the globe to build these brands into successful returning series for their own schedules.”
