Scripps Networks Interactive-owned Cooking Channel has ordered the culinary series Sinful Sweets  from Paris-based producer Pernel Media.

The commission, which will air on the U.S. net this fall, is the French producer’s latest English-speaking production and its first deal to land on an American network.

The 6 x 30-minute program will see British chef and host Harry Eastwood (pictured, right) traversing such American cities as Chicago, Philadelphia, and Charleston, South Carolina, in search of the country’s finest bakeries and dessert makers.

Each half-hour episode documents Eastwood as she visits three stateside eateries renowned for their sweets, and finds out how they’re created in a hands-on experience.

Pernel Media president Samuel Kissous serves as executive producer.

The producer previously launched 4 Babies a Second for Nat Geo People and Baking Good, Baking Bad for Fox International, and locally adapted international formats Dinner Date for France’s Direct 8 and Great British Menu for TF1.
