Netherlands-based Absolutely has inked a representation deal with MNet and will launch formats including The Golden Dish and Minibuzz.
The Golden Dish is a competitive cooking show in which teams of amateur and trained chefs compete in traditionally-themed challenges.
Minibuzz, which has a big following in Uganda and Tanzania where it is stripped, is a half-hour current affairs show filmed on a mininbus in which random passengers contribute to the debate. It was created by Made In Africa TV.
Absolutely’s other formats for MIPCOM include Who Am I?, a Dutch-originated a celebrity panel show in which the guests must guess the identity bestowed upon them and 6 Degrees Productions’ Get a Life!, in which troubled teens undergo extreme therapy miles away from their home environment.
There is also another Dutch format, Eye2Eye Media’s In Search of God. The show takes non-believing celebrities on a spiritual journey and sees them immerse themselves in monastic life.
