Proper to produce Canadian 'Come Dine'
Reality cooking series would air on the W NetworkTORONTO -- Canadian indie producer Proper Television is to produce a Canuck version of Channel Four's "Come Dine with Me" reality cooking series for the W Network.
Toronto-based Proper, which has an output deal with ITV Worldwide, purchased the ITV Studios format to produce a Canadian series where five amateur chefs out-cook and out-snipe each other to become the ultimate dinner party host.
Production on Canada's "Come Dine With Me" series will start this summer, before a fall 2010 airdate on W, Canada's women cable channel.
W already airs the Channel Four "Come Dine With Me" series on its weekend schedule.
ITV Studios' "Come Dine with Me" format has been produced locally in 20 territories and in 11 languages.
