Germany set for Great Bake Off

A German broadcaster has become the latest to commission a local version of UK cooking competition format The Great Bake Off.

ProSiebenSat.1 has licensed the format from BBC Worldwide (BBCWW) whose Tower Productions joint venture with All3Media Germany will make the show.

The format comes from UK indie Love Productions and has now been remade in 14 countries.

The German series, called Das große Backen, was filmed last month in the park of a moated castle near Dusseldorf, Schloss Dyck, an important cultural site in the Lower Rhine.

The show will see 10 amateur bakers compete across 4×90’ episodes to be named Germany’s best home baker. It will air on ProSieben’s flagship channel Sat.1 later this year.

“As the nation with the most types of bread and cake, Germany is a perfect market for The Great Bake Off,” said Sat.1 MD Nicolas Paalzow.

The format is one among the slate BBCWW will be offering at Mipcom in Cannes next week.
