Bomanbridge Media Announces Deal with NBCU Asia for Diva channel

Singapore – February 2, 2016: Leading Singapore-based production/distribution agency, Bomanbridge Media, announced a deal with NBCU for Pan-Asian broadcast on its Diva channel of the hot Canadian cooking show, Chef In Your Ear (CIYE).

NBCU acquired the finished Canadian program which enjoyed the # 1 spot on The Food Network in Canada in Fall 2015. The show is also available as a format.  CJ E&M from South Korea recently renewed the Format for a second season, and is currently on air with Season 1 (locally known as Avatar Chef). Mongol TV Mongolia also licensed the format.

Chef in Your Ear is a brand-new, stand-alone format, all about hands-off cooking. Every week, two award-winning Chefs are challenged to deliver a dish (or dishes) as good and as tasty as the food they make themselves. But there’s a twist. Each dish must be prepared, cooked and plated by a complete kitchen novice, wearing an earpiece, and taking instructions – or not!  The Chefs can see, hear and talk to their rookies. But they can’t smell, taste or touch the food – let alone chop, slice, sizzle or drizzle! For the novices, it’s in at the deep end, as they get the cooking lesson of a lifetime – but down their ear, against the clock, and on TV!

“Bomanbridge is pleased to bring NBCU the entertaining hit series, Chef In Your Ear. This hot cooking competition show, which is also a format, is enjoying tremendous success on important channel brands such as Food Network in Canada, and CJ Media in South Korea.  This unique take on the cooking genre will be sure to please viewers in the region,” said Sonia Fleck, CEO of Bomanbridge Media.

“The Format People are delighted that Chef In Your Ear is reaching an even wider audience in the Asia region.  At the heart of every episode is an amazing journey where regular people with no cooking skills or confidence discover the secrets and the joy of producing tasty food, and want to share it with their families – all thanks to the chef in their ear!”, said Justin Scroggie, CCO & Partner of the Format People, creators of the format.  “We are confident that NBCU will enjoy as much success with the show as the Food Network has.”
