ITV Commissions Third Series Of 'Daily Cooks!' From Prospect Pictures

ITV has commissioned a third series of 'Daily Cooks!' from Prospect Pictures.
The new 40x1 hour series will air from Spring 2007. Currently airing on ITV1 series two regularly attracts audiences of over 1 million.
As a result, Prospect Pictures has promoted Elaine Bancroft to Executive Producer for both Saturday Cooks! and Daily Cooks!. Liz Foley also joins the Cooks team as Producer for the Saturday show.
Bancroft joined Prospect Pictures from Anglia TV where she was Executive Producer working on series including The Wright Stuff. Prior to this she was Series Editor for the BBC’s Food and Drink and also worked as Features Editor for 'This Morning'.
Foley most recently served as Producer on BBC 3’s 'Comic Relief Does Fame Academy'.
Her other credits include Senior Producer on 'The Trisha Goddard Show' for Townhouse TV and Series Producer on Prospect’s own 'Food Uncut' series for UKTV Food. She has also spent time as Development Producer for Network Factual at ITV Anglia.
Commenting on the new appointments Liam Hamilton, Managing Director, Prospect Pictures, said: "We’re delighted to see the Cooks! brand go from strength to strength. With Elaine overseeing Daily Cooks! and Saturday Cooks! and the appointment of Liz I’m sure the brand is destined for even greater success."
Prospect Pictures is a UK based independent production company specialising in live, interactive lifestyle programming - particularly food. The company is also developing factual entertainment and entertainment formats for sale to the international market.
