Stars as Natalie on 'The Baker and the Beauty' (2020)
Developed by Dean Georgaris, The Baker and the Beauty is a romantic musical dramedy adapted from the Israeli romantic-comedy series Beauty and the Baker by Assi Azar that ranks as one of the greatest scripted series in Israel's television history.
Creator Dean Georgaris explained the key difference between the American and Israeli versions.
The Israeli show stayed focused primarily on the baker and the beauty, and it was a half-hour show. We were able to expand it for the hour and really make it about the entire family, which sets us apart and lets us do family stories which we can all relate to.
