Made It, the popular NBC show hosted by Amy Poehler and Nick Offerman, was commissioned for an Australian version of the Free National Radio Network, Network 10.
Launching in 2021, “Making It Australia” will revolve around a central theme inspired by popular craftsmanship and DIY trends, and each episode will consist of two challenges, prepared by local show hosts. Challenges will put the makers’ abilities to the test, while also enabling them to share their personal touching experiences and personal stories, as they compete for a cash prize of $ 100,000 (US $ 71,855).
