Research title

The rise of cooking television show formats within mixed media environments and the multiplatform era.

Research summary

A recent pattern has emerged amongst some of the top television production companies in the world – an investment into very contemporary and fresh new cookery formats. This research will investigate how the cookery program has lent itself to new genres to become a successful television format, which managerial decisions are made when selling international cookery show formats abroad and how cookery formats translate onto digital, multi-platforms and social media.
