Followers of The Nice British Baking Present (known as The Nice British Bake Off within the U.Okay.) could also be excited to be taught that there’s an American model of the favored baking competitors present. Actually, it’s been occurring for 5 seasons and it’s been introduced that the sixth season can be co-hosted by Ellie Kemper (who chances are you’ll know from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Bridesmaids, or The Workplace) and Zach Cherry (from Severance).
Introduced this week, The Nice American Baking Present is about to premiere subsequent 12 months on the Roku Channel and can embody six hour-long episodes. Judged by Paul Hollywood and Prue Leith, manufacturing for the present is at the moment underway within the U.Okay. within the present’s iconic white tent. And similar to the unique British present, the U.S. adaptation will characteristic beginner bakers tackling a collection of baking challenges within the hopes of being topped the winner.
“We couldn’t ask for a extra good duo than Ellie and Zach to co-host The Nice American Baking Present,” Brian Tannenbaum, head of different originals at Roku, mentioned in an announcement. “Our adaptation of the enduring collection will proceed to dish out the enduring heat and humor that followers of the Baking Present universe love, with a twist that we all know Ellie and Zach will ship.”
As a large fan of The Nice British Baking Present, I hope this rings true. In contrast to many American cooking competitors exhibits, that are fueled by drama (whether or not it’s between contestants, emotional backstories, or over-the-top twists to make the duty at hand harder), there’s wholesomeness, camaraderie between contestants, and purity of sport that — in my view — makes The Nice British Baking Present so endearing. In any case, I’m completely happy to have one thing to observe as I eagerly look forward to the premiere of the subsequent season of The Nice British Baking Present.
Right here’s hoping there can be simply as many Paul Hollywood handshakes because the British model!
