Universal Networks International has secured the format rights to create an Asian original of Hot Guys Who Cook to be broadcasted on its female-focused entertainment channel, DIVA Universal.
Hot Guys Who Cook is a deliciously offbeat cooking show, which originally aired on Style in the US. Audiences will get up close and personal in the kitchen with 18 hot guys from all around Asia.
Each week, three hot men show off their cooking skills in an attempt to whet audience’s appetites. They each prepare a signature dish under seven minutes, whilst sharing stories about the recipes and their lives.
Produced by Beach House Productions, Hot Guys Who Cook will boast an eye-candy lineup of guys such as E! News Asia guest host Jason Godfrey, actor and DJ Tom Price and veteran TV host Utt.
David Gunson, Vice President of Channels, South East Asia, Universal Networks International says, “DIVA Universal viewers can’t get enough of the original, high-quality programming that we are investing in for the channel and we can’t wait to introduce our audience to Hot Guys Who Cook — our newest series that is, quite literally, hot. We are certain it will resonate with our female viewers.”
Yvonne Pilkington, Senior Vice President, Production and Format Sales, NBCUniversal International said, “Hot Guys Who Cook brings together women’s two guilty pleasures, beautiful men and food, and the format is perfect for DIVA Universal’s female audience. This is the first international version of the format and we look forward to working with Universal Networks International to tailor the series for the Asian audience.”
