Boat Rocker Studios – Boat Rocker Media’s content, distribution and brands arm – has whisked up a trio of deals for Mary’s Kitchen Crush.

The half-hour cooking show starring season three MasterChef Canada winner Mary Berg has been sold to U.S. streaming network Tastemade, Australian pay-TV food channel Lifestyle FOOD and Australian public broadcaster SBS. The entire first season of Mary’s Kitchen Crush, which consists of 30 episodes, will premiere on Tastemade on Oct. 9.

Produced by Boat Rocker’s Proper Television in association with Bell Media, the series follows Berg as she prepares original recipes inspired by her family and friends. Unveiled by Bell Media last June, Mary’s Kitchen Crush made its debut on CTV this April and airs on Bell Media’s SVOD Crave and CTV Life Channel (formerly Gusto) in Canada.

Exec producers on the show include Proper Television co-presidents Cathie James and Leisa Capone as well as VP of content Allison Grace. Garrett Wintrip serves as series producer. In September 2017, Boat Rocker Media acquired Proper Television and its distribution arm Proper Rights.

This news follows the announcement that Disney Junior U.S. has picked up Dino Ranch, a CG-animated preschool series produced by Boat Rocker Studios and Toronto’s Industrial Brothers.
