Endemol Shine Group’s MasterChef returns to Portugal 

Portugal’s TVI will debut 13 episodes of MasterChef following the series three-year hiatus.

MasterChef Portugal, produced and distributed by Endemol Shine Group, will see the return of host Manuel Luis Goucha (pictured center left), with chefs Rui Paula (center right), Miguel Rocha Vieira (left) and Nuno Bergonse (right) as judges.

The format challenges 15 contestants to find the best amateur cook in the country. Created by Franc Roddam, the worldwide MasterChef series has more than 60 local versions airing in more than 200 territories.

BBC2 to air political program The Andrew Neil Show 

Andrew Neil, journalist and former host of the BBC’s Politics Live, is set to helm a primetime political program on the pubcaster.

The Andrew Neil Show, which debuts Sept. 4 on BBC2, will offer political analysis and interviews as Oct. 31, the date of the UK’s scheduled departure from the European Union, approaches.

The 30-minute program airs 7 p.m. every Wednesday, rounding up events of the political week, such as the Prime Minister’s Questions or the party leaders’ conference speeches.

“Andrew’s special programme with the Conservative leadership candidates was hailed as a masterclass of political interviewing,” BBC news director Frans Unsworth said in a statement. “As Britain moves towards the Brexit deadline, this show will be a must-watch for anyone who wants to understand what’s going on.”
