Amazon and Tastemade have signed a multi-year first look deal to produce unscripted lifestyle content. Their first venture together as part of the deal will deliver 15 new shows to Prime Video and Amazon Freevee audiences over the next few years.
“Dish it Out” will be the first unscripted series to come from the partnership. Hosted by Gordon Ramsay’s daughter, Matilda “Tilly” Ramsay, the series will follow the young Ramsay as she receives a mystery box of goods from various chefs and home cooks around the world in each episode, piecing together the items in each box to create a globally inspired dish. The series has received a 32-episode order and production will begin in 2024 in Tastemade’s London studios.
