London — Karen Ross, the creative director of the U.K. version of “MasterChef,” has set up production company Sidney Street Productions with the backing of Endemol Shine. Sidney Street will specialize in producing food, factual and lifestyle formats.

MasterChef” executive editor David Ambler, who has worked alongside Ross on the show for the past eight years, will oversee all versions of the format from the New Year from within Shine TV.

Ross launched a re-versioned “MasterChef” in 2005, originally as series producer, steering it from its original early evening BBC Two slot (as “MasterChef Goes Large”) to a returning primetime hit for BBC One with three successful further iterations.

As creative director, Ross has launched and overseen eight seasons of BAFTA-winning “MasterChef: The Professionals,” 10 “Celebrity MasterChef” seasons and three of “MasterChef Junior.” The 11th season of “MasterChef,” transmitted earlier this year on BBC One, was the most watched to date.
