WE tv has ordered six, hourlong episodes of Hustle & Soul, a docuseries focused on the owner and staff of Brooklyn’s Pink Tea Cup restaurant, for premiere early next year.
Produced by Big Fish Entertainment, Hustle & Soul follows owner and head chef Lawrence Page on a quest to make the Pink Tea Cup the first soul food restaurant to garner the coveted Michelin Star, all while trying to manage staff in-fighting, power moves and love triangles.
“When Lawrence Page resurrected the Pink Tea Cup and relocated it to Fort Greene, Brooklyn, he brought along a high-spirited team that always keeps love and dysfunction on the menu,” said Marc Juris, WE tv president. “WE tv viewers will be fascinated with ‘Hustle & Soul’ and the engaging and highly entertaining staff of the Pink Tea Cup, where every dish comes with a side of drama.”
Hustle & Soul is executive produced by Dan Cesareo, Ken Martinez and George McTeague, and Kim Osorio serves as co-executive producer. In-house executive producers for WE tv are David Stefanou and Lauren Lazin.
