News Image
Fremantle Media and Jamie Oliver are continuing to build on the success of their partnership to bring the British chef's cooking shows to audiences around the world with a raft of new deals including the creation of a dedicated FAST channel, The Jamie Oliver Channel.

Launching on Amazon's Freevee on 30th June, the free ad-supported video streaming service will give US fans access to a catalogue of shows including American Road Trip, 30 Minute Meals and Jamie’s Kitchen. This is the first time the British chef’s hit cooking shows will be featured together all in one place. The Jamie Oliver Channel will continue to roll-out on other services in the coming months.

The global producer and distributor has also secured a number of global deals for Jamie’s latest series, The Great Cookbook Challenge with Jamie Oliver, which sees the best undiscovered British cooks compete against each other to win a life-changing prize and publish their very own cookbook with Penguin Random House. After successfully launching in the UK on Channel 4 in January, broadcasters such as CTV Life Channel (Canada), Disney (Eastern Europe, Netherlands, MENA and Turkey) FOX Life (Greece, Malta, Cyprus), RTL Living (Germany) AMC Networks International Central & Northern Europe (Hungary, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Romania, Moldova), Ananey (Israel) and TV3 Lithuania (Lithuania) have picked up the series. The Great Cookbook Challenge with Jamie Oliver (7x 60) is produced by Jamie Oliver Productions and Plum Pictures for Channel 4. Fremantle are also selling the format.
