Boomerang commissioned to produce 62 episodes of Extreme Cake Makers for Channel 4 and US to air series two
Welsh based label, Boomerang, (part of Twofour Group) has been commissioned to produce a bumper batch of its Channel 4 brand, Extreme Cake Makers, including two 30 x 30â€™ series â€“ series 3 and 4 – and two specials.
Meanwhile, distributor Twofour Rights has struck a deal with the CookingÂ Channel, which has acquired rights to air series two in the US.
Matt Pritchard,Â Managing Director,Â Boomerang, said: â€śThanks to Channel 4â€™s continued support for this award-winning series, our Cardiff team are once again looking forward to donning the aprons for some more extraordinary cake creations.â€ť
Holly Hodges, who brokered the US deal for Twofour Rights, added: â€śExtreme Cake Makers combines extraordinary and compelling crafts people with show stopping creations that can be universally appreciated. With the additional scope for digital presence, this series is the perfect recipe for our international clients.â€ť
David Sayer, Head of Daytime, Channel 4, who commissioned the series, says: â€śWeâ€™re thrilled to continue working with Boomerang on this series jam-packed full of technically outstanding cakes from masterful bakers across the U.K. The show is a testament to those of us who are captivated by watching remarkable creations unfold in the kitchen.â€ť
Extreme Cake Makers, narrated by Rufus Hound, lands us in the heart of the whirlwind that is extreme cake making, as we watch this elite group of crafts men and women making dreams come true through these edible masterpieces. Series two’s magnificent line up of cake making extraordinaires included Britain’s first female pilot in the forces, a minister, a fashionista and a tattoo artist. The cake makers created everything from a four ft tall replica cow to an edible remote control car, an intricate nine tier wedding cake to a replica of Highgrove House thatâ€™s presented to HRH Prince Charles himself.
The first series of the brand sold into over 60 territories worldwide. Extreme Cake Makers won the broadcast award for Best Daytime Series and will soon total over 100 episodes. Extreme Cake Makers forms part of Twofour Rightsâ€™ slate of formats and finished tapes.Â The series is produced in Cardiff, executive produced by Boomerangâ€™s Director of Programmes, Sam Grace.
