New Zealand version of My Kitchen Rules back on the menu for TVNZ

Manu Feildel and Nigella Lawson as judges in the Australian version of My Kitchen Rules 

New Zealand broadcaster TVNZ is bringing back its localised adaptation of Australian cooking format My Kitchen Rules after a five-year hiatus.

Banijay-owned prodco Screentime New Zealand will make the culinary competition in New Zealand, which is set to screen on TVNZ 2 in 2023. The local version originally premiered on TVNZ 1 in 2014 and aired four seasons.

The format sees teams attempt to out-dine each other from their own homes by preparing family recipes under the watchful eye of judges Colin Fassnidge and Manu Feildel.

The Auckland-based broadcaster has also secured the long-term rights to broadcast the Australian version of the show, which now has Nigella Lawson and Feildel as judges.

“As a nation we’re incredibly proud of our foodie culture,” said Philly de Lacey, CEO of Screentime New Zealand (SNZ). “SNZ is set to bring creative know-how to this excellent format for TVNZ.”

Banijay Rights agreement with TVNZ will see My Kitchen Rules Australia broadcast on TVNZ and TVNZ+ from this week.
