BYUtv To Debut Two Family Oriented Cooking Shows On June 19, "Best Cake Wins" And "Donna Hay - Basics To Brilliance Kids"
PROVO, Utah, June 15, 2018 -- BYUtv, a family entertainment network, today announced the premiere date of two new unscripted shows "Best Cake Wins" and "Donna Hay - Basics to Brilliance Kids." Acquired by BYUtv, the Australian cooking show "Donna Hay - Basics to Brilliance Kids" is set to premiere in the U.S. on Tuesday, June 19th at 6:00pm MT followed by "Best Cake Wins," a baking competition show at 6:30pm MT.
Created by Toronto-based content production companies, Blue Ant Media and Architect Films with BYUtv, "Best Cake Wins" is a fun and friendly baking competition series designed to make a child's most desired birthday cake a reality. On "Best Cake Wins," kids design their dream cake based on their own artwork and two expert bakers take these concepts and bring them to life. The birthday boy or girl ultimately decides which cake wins. "Best Cake Wins" is currently airing on the Makeful network in Canada.
"We are thrilled to further diversify our programming roster with these cooking shows that appeal to families and viewers of all ages," said Michael Dunn, managing director of BYUtv. "These two newly acquired shows combine food, family and fun to further emphasize our commitment to creating content that is cross-generational and brings families together."
In "Donna Hay - Basics to Brilliance Kids," Australia's number one bestselling cookbook author shares her secrets to getting kids involved in the kitchen by inviting viewers to go on an all-new food adventure that takes simple recipes kids adore and uses her signature healthy makeover style to transform them into brilliant meals for the whole family. Donna Hay stepped into a kitchen at age 8, picked up a mixing bowl and never looked back. Her unique style turned her into an international food-publishing phenomenon as a bestselling author of 20 cookbooks, publisher of Donna Hay Magazine, newspaper columnist and creator of a homewares and food range.
"Best Cake Wins" and "Donna Hay - Basics to Brilliance Kids" join BYUtv's original programming slate including the long-running sketch comedy series "Studio C," which touts over 1 billion views on YouTube, "Relative Race," the first family-history based competitive reality show that follows four teams as they meet relatives linked by DNA for the first time in a race throughout the States and "Random Acts," an unscripted hidden-camera reality show that highlights the altruistic nature of human beings by featuring real people who are the recipients of random acts of kindness. BYUtv is available in every state of the country via cable, satellite and multiple digital media platforms including byutv.org, AppleTV, Xbox ONE, Xbox360, Roku, Amazon FireTV, iOS and Android.
