Global Road Entertainment is to ramp up its move into the non-scripted television world with the development of Fridge Wars with Canada’s CBC.

The company is co-developing the studio-based entertainment format with the Canadian public broadcaster. The show follows Canadian families across the country, revealing what’s in their fridge and pitting two celebrity chefs against each other to make the best meal possible from the contents in the families’ kitchens.

The development is being lead by Phil Gurin, President of Unscripted & Alternative Television, Global Road Entertainment.

Last month, Global Road acquired the global rights to Little Wooden Boat Productions’ GSN gameshow format Idiotest, based on a popular app. In January, the company, which was formerly known as IM Global, pacted with DRG to take the U.S and Latin American rights, as well as China to Catch Phrase.

“We look forward to working with Phil and the team at Global Road to develop this fresh, family-friendly format with strong Canadian and international appeal,” said Jennifer Dettman, Executive Director, Unscripted Content, CBC. “CBC is committed to creating original unscripted formats that are exportable, and also serve our audiences here at home.”

“We are thrilled to develop this new original format with our friends and partners at the CBC.  Our shared vision to create original content, to be produced and launched in Canada with Canadian producers and talent, is a perfect way to combine creative and production resources with our friends to the north.  The format we have co-created is a twist on a food competition show, with plenty of heart, laughs and audience take-away.  We expect this to become a global format,” added Gurin.
