Mexican broadcaster TV Azteca has ordered a localized adaptation of the live culinary format Mexican Chefs from FremantleMedia Latin America.

The series, known locally as Cocineros Mexicanos, will shadow four professional chefs as they journey across the Mexican countryside and explore the gastronomic offerings of each state.

FremantleMedia will oversee all aspects of the production and creative development of the series, which will be filmed within TV Azteca Studios.

The format was originally created by Argentina-based producer Kapow as Cocineros Argentinos for broadcast across Argentinian pubcaster Televisión Pública Argentina, with a Chilean version of the series - Cocineros Chilenos – being screening across Chilevisión.

Cocineros Mexicanos is scheduled to premiere October 17 on Azteca 7.
