“MasterChef SA was the perfect choice as both the local and the international versions have proven that the format is a firm favourite with our viewers. It’s a heart-warming and welcoming content.”
The 20-episode series will be produced by Cape Town-based production company Homebrew and shot in October and November. The MasterChef format and programmes are represented internationally by Banijay Rights.
