Optomen cookery competition Crazy Delicious will have an edible set.
Channel 4 and Netflix are teaming up for their first non-scripted co-production: a food competition called Crazy Delicious.
Optomen’s 6 x 60-minute series will take place in the world’s first edible set, which is kitted out with edible trees and a drinkable babbling brook.
Three cooks pick from an ‘enchanted garden’ to create unusual and inspiring culinary creations which will then be judged by a panel of renowned ‘food gods’.
The production extends the partnership between C4 and Netflix into non-scripted, having previously partnered on the likes of The End of the F***ing World and Kiss Me First.
Netflix looks to capitalise on its established original cooking shows including breakout hit Nailed It!.
The show also follows the SVoD’s previously-announced non-scripted collaboration with BBC2 on Darlow Smithson’s Interior Design Masters.
Crazy Delicious was commissioned by Channel 4 head of features and formats Sarah Lazenby, along with commissioning editors Clemency Green and Tim Hancock. The Netflix content executives are Nathan Wolfe and Lucy Leveugle.
Tina Flintoff, Nick Hornby and Nicola Pointer are executive producing and Charlotte Brookes is the series editor.
“Nick and I are thrilled to be working with C4 and Netflix on such an ambitious idea and to have the opportunity to create a bold new format,” said Optomen chief executive Flintoff.
C4’s Lazenby said: “We’re delighted to be collaborating with Netflix to bring this fantastical format alive and can’t wait for the food gods to taste the wonderful creations, not to mention the edible set.”
