NBCUniversal International Formats has sold its hit unscripted format “Top Chef” to Cinemateli Content for the creation of "Top Chef Mexico."

The 13-episode show will premiere February 2016 in Mexico on Canal Sony and will also air in the U.S. on NBC Universo, one of NBCU’s premium Hispanic channels.

“We are extremely happy to announce the arrival of ‘Top Chef’ in Mexico and look forward to seeing the contestants embark on this exciting culinary adventure,” says Yvonne Pilkington, senior vice president, formats and production, NBCUniversal International Formats. “The ‘Top Chef’ franchise has become an international phenomenon in recent years and we are thrilled at its continued expansion in the Latin American market.”

This month, “Top Chef” premiered in El Salvador on Canal 2, marking the first Central American version of the format. The series has already proven popular among Latin audiences with strong ratings in 2014 on national broadcaster TVN Chile, where it is produced together with

 BCN Producciones; and in the U.S., where two seasons of a Spanish-language celebrity version have aired on Telemundo.
