Netflix Announce Three New Unscripted Shows – Comedy, Musical and Baking

Netflix has announced three new unscripted series including a comedy panel show with Jimmy Carr, Katherine Ryan and D.L. Hughley; a musical show with artists preparing for a big performance; and a baking show with Candace Nelson and Adriano Zumbo.

The Fix – 10 Episodes

The Fix is the first comedy show in the world with the stated ambition to solve the world’s biggest problems. Through comedy. And experts. But mainly through comedy. In each episode Jimmy Carr, along with two permanent team captains – Katherine Ryan and D.L. Hughley – host guest comics and experts in taking one massive issue facing the world and attempting to solve it.

Westside – 8 Episodes

The series follows a group of ambitious and deeply talented young musicians spanning multiple genres, coming together to create an original performance series at a Los Angeles nightclub. Following the artists in their complicated lives as they pursue their dreams to make it in the music business, the format weaves gritty and cinematic docu-series scenes with artistic music videos featuring original songs that underscore the storylines of the series.

Sugar Rush

Sugar Rush is the new, relentlessly fast-paced baking competition that challenges brilliant bakers to create sweet treats that look beautiful and taste amazing – all against the clock. The competition is judged by two world class pastry chefs: Candace Nelson (co-founder and executive pastry chef behind Sprinkles cupcakes and Pizzana in Los Angeles) and Adriano Zumbo, with Hunter March hosting.

  1. Don’t sound great. I might give the Jimmy Carr one a go. These seem to have an American involvement and we do these panel shows better than them, so I’ll give it a go, but not expecting much. As for the other 2 – just no.

  2. I briefly misread that as Comedy, Musical and Banking. Bank Off might be a bit dull though. The panel show could be interesting – we’re used to seeing Ryan (and Carr) water down their stage personas for telly; since this isn’t the Beeb they might not have to for this.
