Twofour Rights, the in-house distribution arm of UK prodco Twofour, is sending its cooking format with a twist, The Diner, to Amsterdam-headquartered broadcaster SBS Netherlands.

The series will be produced locally by Vincent TV Producties and will premiere later this year on the Dutch broadcaster’s Net5 channel.

Originally commissioned for UK pubcaster Channel 4 as Kitchen Impossible with Michel Roux Jr (pictured), the series features a world-class culinary expert taking a group of young people with disabilities under his wing as they attempt to break into the hospitality industry.

The deal was brokered by Twofour Rights senior sales exec Eniela Bella.

The Diner is a unique project that challenges perceptions and transforms lives,” said Bella in a statement.
