The United States is once again re-baking — we mean “re-making” — another foreign series.

Much like its predecessor Homeland, which was based on Hatufim, or Hostages, which was based Bnei Aruba, Hollywood has set its sights on another Israeli show.

The latest offering is The Baker and the Beauty, which follows the romance between an ordinary baker and an international superstar.

While the original series is available on Amazon Prime, ABC has ordered a pilot of an English-speaking, Americanized version from Dean Geogaris.

The hour-long rom-com marks the second pilot for The Brave creator this season after NBC ordered Bluff City Law.

Hopefully there will be cookies.
