ABC has canceled hourlong romantic comedy The Baker and the Beauty, based on the hit Israeli format.
Tipped as comfort-food fare that could be a good programming fit during the pandemic, the adaptation of the Israeli format is yet to connect with a wide audiences, ranking as one of the ABC’s lowest-rated series.
The Baker and the Beauty grew from week one to week two by 9% in Total Viewers (3.9 million vs. 3.6 million) and by 33% among Adults 18-49 (0.8/4 vs. 0.6/3).
Starring Victor Rasuk and Nathalie Kelley in the title roles, the Notting Hill-esque Baker and the Beauty hails from The Brave creator Dean Georgaris, David Frankel, Keshet Studios, Universal TV and ABC Studios.
Written by Georgaris and directed by Frankel, The Baker and the Beauty centers on Daniel Garcia (Rasuk), who is working in the family bakery and doing everything that his loving Cuban parents and siblings expect him to do. But on a wild Miami night he meets Noa Hamilton (Kelley), an international superstar and fashion mogul, and his life moves into the spotlight. Will this unlikely couple upend their lives to be together and pull their families into a culture clash?
Cast also includes Carlos Gomez, Dan Bucatinsky, Lisa Vidal, Belissa Escobedo, Michelle Veintimilla and David Del Rio.
Georgaris, Frankel and Edwards executive produce with Keshet’s Avi Nir, Alon Shtruzman, Peter Traugott and Rachel Kaplan, along with original series creator Assi Azar. Universal Television and ABC Studios produce in association with Keshet Studios.
