In addition to a brand-new pastry-themed Chef’s Table series, Netflix has another big dessert-centric show coming down the pipeline. Nailed It, a new culinary competition, will feature amateur bakers attempting to recreate elaborate treats for a chance to win $10,000. The show will take a more lighthearted approach to the craft of pastry-making than something like, say, The Great British Bake-Off, and judging by the trailer, it looks like the epic fails will be celebrated along with the major wins.
The show is hosted by comedian Nicole Byer, a UCB veteran who created the web series *Loosely Exactly Nicole, and Jacques Torres, the legendary New York City chocolatier who first made a name for himself in the kitchen of Le Cirque many years ago. A different guest star will help asses each round of baking. The roster of guest judges includes culinary mad scientist Dave Arnold, LA-based confectioner Valerie Gordon, wedding cake impresario Sylvia Weinstock, Food Network fixture Zac Young, and Super Troopers star Jay Chandrasekhar.
Here’s a peek at one of the fancy pastries, and a less-than-perfect recreation:
All six episodes of this original series will land on Netflix on Friday, March 9. Stay tuned for more details on the show as they become available.
