Polish pubcaster TVP has commissioned a local version of reality format Chef at Your Door (pictured) from Los Angeles- and London-based formats company Small World IFT.
The 10 x 45-minutes local version of the series is being produced by Warsaw-based Rochstar and will begin airing next month on TVP1 under the title Sąsiad na widelcu. The show will follow host Łukasz Grass as he travels the country to challenge families and neighbors to create a fine dining experience using ingredients they have around the house. Celebrity chefs Ewa Olejniczak and Robert Sowa co-star.
“Chef at Your Door offers a highly cost effective production solution for local adaptation, whilst also offering broadcasters fantastic opportunities for brand integration,” Rochstar CEO Rinke Rooyens said in a statement. “It’s a perfect fit for the family viewing demographic of TVP1 and we’re delighted to play a part in bringing this great new series to Poland’s screens.”
The original version was created by Germany’s Tresor TV and has since been licensed to France’s Gulli network. In 2012, Small World IFT signed a strategic expansion deal with entertainment company Content Media Corporation to grow it into a global format sales company.
