My Kitchen Rules NZ coming to TV2
The heat is on and the knives are out New Zealand. The biggest show on TV is about to get even bigger with a local version of reality phenomenon, My Kitchen Rules, confirmed for TV2!
Kiwis who fancy a shot at stardom can apply for MKR NZ here.
My Kitchen Rules Australia is a multi-night ratings titan in NZ with its fourth and most recent season being by far the most watched show of 2013 by Kiwis aged 18 - 49 - TV2's core audience.
The decision to do a local version came down to this huge success says TV2 Programmer John Kelly:
“New Zealanders just couldn’t get enough of My Kitchen Rules, with 2013 being the highest-rating season yet. For this reason, we are thrilled to be teaming with format-owners Seven Network Australia, Endemol, through who the format was licensed, and Imagination TV who will produce the first local version of MKR, where Kiwi teams will battle it out in the instant restaurant rounds and create dishes and drama that will captivate the nation.”
MKR is an epic cooking competition, but it’s the chemistry between fascinating personalities thrown into dramatic challenges that has had audiences hooked for four years on TV2.
My Kitchen Rules NZ will be the television event of 2014, dishing up these twists and turns with an untapped bunch of dynamic Kiwi duos.
There’ll be more details announced soon on the local version, which goes to air later this year.
