Channel 4 and Netflix to partner on food show

C4 logo Channel 4 and Netflix are partnering on a new food show that marks the first non-scripted collaboration between the two companies. 

Crazy Delicious will be filmed on a set containing edible trees and a drinkable babbling brook.

Each week, three amateur cooks will pick their ingredients from the ‘garden’ to create ingenious and even fantastical dishes from the commonplace produce on offer. 

Optomen Television is making the show; it will be executive produced by Tina Flintoff, Nick Hornby and Nicola Pointer.

It was commissioned by Channel 4 head of features and formats, Sarah Lazenby, along with commissioning editors Clemency Green and Tim Hancock and Netflix content execs Nathan Wolfe and Lucy Leveugle. 

Flintoff said of the news: “Nick and I are thrilled to be working with Channel 4 and Netflix on such an ambitious idea and to have the opportunity to create a bold new format.’’
