SINGAPORE – Global content investment and rights management company, Motion Content Group and Singapore media company, Mediacorp have confirmed that the forthcoming MasterChef Singapore will air on Mediacorp’s Channel 5.


Motion Content Group, part of GroupM, the world’s leading media management company, had earlier acquired the rights to produce and broadcast MasterChef Singapore from Endemol Shine Group.


The rights deal was negotiated by Fotini Paraskakis of Endemol Shine Group, Cathy Payne of Endemol Shine International and Steven Murphy of Motion Content Group, Asia Pacific.


As English rights were originally not available, the show was set to air on Channel 8. However, following further negotiations, MasterChef Singapore will now air for Singapore viewers on Channel 5 in English and reach a more diverse audience.


Mediacorp, as broadcast partner in this collaboration, is pleased to add MasterChef to its repertoire of food shows on its channels.
