Bake and Wired may be gaining grassroots support in the Ward 2 cupcake wars, but so what? Sisters Katherine Kallinis and Sophie LaMontagne, who started Georgetown Cupcake just about two years ago, are getting their own reality TV series.
Local blog DC Fab! says that the show “will be an educational, how-to show that will probably showcase the special Georgetown community along with going behind-the-scenes in their bakery.” (So, less Buddy Valastro and more Paula Deen?)
So far, no one has established which network is offering these local pâtissières a show. But on her blog Oh My Goff WUSA 9′s Angie Goff said an “industry insider” told her that the show will be on TLC, the same network that hosts Cake Boss. Production is scheduled to start this month, she wrote.
This may just about make up for the loss of Blond Charity Mafia, a show about brats who fund-raise and drink in Georgetown. Vox is terribly excited to see the trailer for this one, and we can’t wait to find out what the show will be called. Georgetown Cupcake: Unfrosted? Behind the Sprinkles? Endless possibilities.
