Meredith Shopping Allrecipes Shows

Meredith Video Studios, the production wing of Meredith, is shopping a trio of concepts related to the Allrecipes brand to cable and broadcast outlets.

There’s a primetime cook-off contest that Kieran Clarke, executive vice president and president of Meredith Video Studios, describes as a combination of The Voice and Extreme Makeover, with a host and judges who mentor cooking hopefuls. There’s also a game show concept playing up the culture of food around the country, and there’s a daytime, hour-long strip featuring the Allrecipes “All-Stars”—frequent contributors to the site and social network.
