Seven Network Australia and GRB Entertainment have entered into a content deal. Seven Network will broadcast an American reality television series with a focus on culinary skill, BBQ Pitmasters on its pay television network.
“There are several elements that make BBQ Pitmasters such a global phenomenon,” said Mike Lolato, SVP, International Distribution with GRB Entertainment. “The series sits in the unique space of male-skewing competition cooking. Audiences identify with the passion the teams have for barbecue and the take-home information make it appointment viewing for all aspiring backyard chefs. BBQ Pitmasters proves there’s a place for male-skewing programming outside of the realm of sports and automotive series, we’re thrilled that Seven Network and Foxtel have both recognized that.”
BBQ Pitmasters series was first premiered on TLC on 3. The show has successfully completed six seasons. It is currently in its seventh season on Destination America channel since 25 May, 2015.
