Stars as Vanessa on ‘The Baker and the Beauty’ (2020)
Developed by Dean Georgaris, The Baker and the Beauty is an American romantic musical comedy-drama on ABC, adapted from the Israeli series Beauty and the Baker. The Israeli version developed by Assi Azar streamed on Amazon Prime while it ranks as one of the greatest scripted shows ever in Israel.
Showrunner Dean Georgaris explained the major differences between the American version and its Israeli counterpart.
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.
As per IMDb, the premise reads:
A blue-collar baker strikes up a relationship with an international superstar. US version of the Israeli romantic comedy series ‘The Baker and the Beauty.’
