Amazon Prime Video has given a series greenlight to Dr. Seuss Baking Challenge with Tamera Mowry-Housley as host. The unscripted series, which had been in development, will premiere on Prime Video in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide this winter.
Dr. Seuss Baking Challenge invites America’s best bakers to step into the world of Dr. Seuss and use their imaginations to craft creations inspired by beloved Dr. Seuss characters. Hosted by Mowry-Housley, in each episode bakers will be given a challenge based around Seuss characters and stories. Their work will be judged by pastry chef Clarice Lam and pastry chef and cake designer Joshua John Russell, based on taste, creativity, and storytelling.
The series marks a rare unscripted television extension of the Dr. Seuss brand, which is better known for animated features such as Horton Hears A Who! and The Grinch and Netflix series Green Eggs and Ham.
