Ellender said, "We are delighted to have acquired such a high profile and keenly-awaited daytime series from the cream of US television talent.

A new recipe for daytime success, Martha shows Martha Stewart as we know and love her - and as we've never seen her before. The daily one-hour programme offers a new and different format for daytime TV. Combining Martha's signature sense of humour with her love of people and projects, the show presents inspiring ideas from cooking and entertaining, to decorating, and home renovating, states an official release.

Launched in September 2005 in the US on NBC, Martha is shot in front of a live studio audience and features a variety of celebrity guests joining Martha, fast becoming the doyenne of daytime, in her culinary and domestic activities.

FID also holds the worldwide distribution rights to Martha excluding North America (US and Canada), Japan, Australia, and the Arabic-speaking Middle East. As part of the deal, the company has also acquired the Martha Stewart Living Television back catalogue for international distribution.
