‘BAKING IT’ – SERIES PICK-UP
Peacock has ordered six episodes of BAKING IT from executive producer Amy Poehler.
From the creators of “Making It,” Amy Poehler and Nicolle Yaron, comes BAKING IT, a holiday event series where teams of two talented home bakers compete with their most delectable savory and sweet edible creations.
Contestants are hoping to win a cash grand prize and who better to judge and critique at the holidays then three opinionated real-life grandmas, who happen to be fantastic bakers themselves. Amy will personally hand the hosting reigns over to two celebrity friends to host this six-episode arcing competition. Like the holidays, BAKING IT will evoke a joyful and comedic spirit at a time of year where we come together to honor our traditions and indulge in excessive baked goods.
The series is produced by Universal Television Alternative Studio, a division of Universal Studio Group, in association with Paper Kite Productions and 3 Arts Entertainment. Amy Poehler, Nicolle Yaron, Pip Wells, Kate Arend and Dave Becky serve as executive producers.Source
