UK distributor DCD Rights has sold 13-part cooking series Bitten: Sarah Graham Cooks Cape Town to Multicanal Spain, Discovery Middle East, Germany’s TV Gusto and Ananey Israel.

The Okuhle Media and Sunrise Productions-made show follows South African food blogger and cook book author Sarah Graham (pictured) as she prepares dishes for friends and family.

Multicanal Spain acquired the show for its Cocina channel, Discovery Middle East took Bitten for Takhayal and Ananey Israel picked up the series for The Food Channel.

DCD Publishing will also represent Graham for international merchandising and rights.

Bitten is a real life cookery series which has wide international appeal,” said Nicky Davies Williams, CEO at DCD Rights, in a statement. “It is bright and fun and focuses on the creation of unintimidating dishes for real people in real social situations. We look forward to further series from Sarah to build on this initial international success.”
