The Baker & The Beauty is an upcoming American romantic musical comedy-drama series that is set to air on ABC during the 2019–20 television season as a midseason entry. The series is a adaptation of the Israeli romantic-comedy series Beauty and the Baker (Hebrew: להיות איתה Translit.: Lehiyot Ita Translated: "Being with Her"). The original version ranks as one of the highest-rated scripted series ever in Israel, and its episodes have been streamed on Amazon Prime Video. The American version is being developed and executive produced by Dean Georgaris, Becky Hartman Edwards, David Frankel, Avi Nir, Alon Shtruzman, Peter Traugott, and Rachel Kaplan for Universal Television.
Set in Miami, Florida, the series will follow Daniel Garcia, who is working in the family bakery and doing everything that his loving Cuban parents and siblings expect him to do. But on a wild Miami night he meets Noa Hamilton, an international superstar and fashion mogul, and his life moves into the spotlight.
