International Channels Get The Taste For DCD Rights ‘Bitten’ At MIPTV

15 April 2014

Following a successful MIPTV, DCD Rights has sold its new, award winning 13 part cookery series Bitten: Sarah Graham Cooks Cape Town to a number of international channels.  Featuring the popular South African food blogger and cook book author Sarah Graham, Bitten has been acquired by Multicanal Spain for its Cocina channel; TV Gusto in Germany; Discovery Middle East for Takhayal and by Ananey Israel for The Food Channel.

Nicky Davies Williams, CEO at DCD Rights said, “Bitten is a ‘real life’ cookery series which has wide international appeal.  It is bright and fun and focuses on the creation of unintimidating dishes for real people in real social situations. We look forward to further series from Sarah to build on this initial international success.”

Bitten: Sarah Graham Cooks Cape Town won a prestigious Golden Horn Award for best Variety and Lifestyle Show at the 2014 South African Film & Televisions Awards (SAFTAs) in Johannesburg last week.

DCD Publishing has also signed up Sarah Graham in order to represent her for international merchandising and rights.

Bitten: Sarah Graham Cooks Cape Town is a fun, funky, real show about building relationships with people around food. It’s about everyday food and the people who make it…burns and botches included.  At the heart of Bitten is Sarah Graham, a self-confessed ‘regular person’ who is a food writer and cookbook author.  She’s the first to admit that she’s not a professional chef. But she’s built her life around a passion for good friends and good food.  Now, Sarah invites television viewers to share in her world, from her kitchen to her favourite restaurants to the homes of the people she loves.

Bitten: Sarah Graham Cooks Cape Town is produced by Okuhle Media & Sunrise Productions for SABC.
