CBS has ordered a new alternative series, Bake Off (working title), based on the hit UK format The Great British Bake Off, for broadcast next year.

The series will feature skilled amateur Americans competing in baking challenges, with one ultimately being crowned the winner. 

The Great British Bake Off has become a ratings sensation in the UK.  The third season finale, which aired on October 16, was one of the highest-rated BBC2 originated shows in the last six years, earning a 25.3% share among British viewers, a series high.
