Now Casting: The Cake Boss Spawns Another Recycled Food TV Idea
Oh, how we long for original and inventive programming...
Hey folks! Here we are yet again, with another casting announcement for yet another TV show revolving around food. Well, based on food, we should say. Yes, it's a bit early to tell, but judging by the crummy puns in their announcement ("dough"... "whip"... GET IT?!) accompanied by the need for perceived drama ("conflicts within the shop") point toward yet another disappointment.
You may remember the show's production company (High Noon TV) from other turds such as VH1 Tough Love, Guinness World Records Gone Wild!, Along For The Bride, Hurricane Hunters, and Nick and Vanessa's Dream Wedding. (As in Nick Lachey and Vanessa Minnillo.)
Wish we could've been in the planning room for this one. Here's how we're guessing it went down: "Hmmmm, how to make more of the monies? Ooooh! Ooooh! I got it! Let's do a show where someone goes into failing restaurants and helps fix them up! Oh, someone's already done that? Robert Irvine and Gordon Ramsay, you say? Crap. Hmmm.... Oooh! Oooh! Let's do it with bakeries! What do you mean Duff won't do it? How 'bout that Cake Boss guy then? Awesome! I bet the Food Network will take it! They said no? Cooking Channel? No. Bravo? No. ABC? No. TLC? Ding ding ding ding ding! We have a winner! Make a flyer thingy and let's get ready to exploit some business owners on the cutting room floor! Oh, and start shooting B-roll now so we can turn 10 minutes of content into a one-hour show each week."
Anyway, if our snark hasn't dissuaded you, and you (or someone you hate) owns a bakery, more info on how to apply is at BakeryShowCasting.com. Good... luck?
