the_baker_and_the_beauty-1Channel 4 is to air a Hebrew-language drama after picking up an Israeli romantic comedy from Keshet International. The first episode of The Baker & The Beauty will air on Channel 4 during August.

The Baker and the Beauty is a romantic comedy that follows the impossible love story between a simple baker and an international superstar.

Noa Hollander has it all: she’s the most famous woman in the country, the beautiful daughter of a hotel magnate, a successful model with an international career and – up until now – one half of a Hollywood power couple.

Amos is a simple 28-year-old guy who still lives with his parents and works at the family bakery…

A chance encounter at a fancy restaurant — where Amos goes to celebrate his ninth anniversary with his girlfriend Vanessa, and where Noa is avoiding public speculation about a break-up from her Hollywood lover – leads to unexpected sparks and an even more unlikely love story. Can their love survive her jet-setting lifestyle, her overbearing agent, his unworldly family, both their exes and the media?

The Baker and the Beauty is a story for anyone who’s ever fantasized about falling in love with a superstar, but never had to face the practicalities!

The Baker and the Beauty became the most viewed first season of a scripted series in Israel, consistently attracting a 26.7% rating and 37.6% share, gaining viewers every episode.

A second season, packed full of challenges for the unlikely couple, has been commissioned. Culture clashes, family values, celebrity, love and humor make The Baker and the Beauty a winning formula for international broadcasters looking to create a successful primetime scripted series.
