WeTV Greenlights ‘Hustle & Soul’ Docu-Series

WE tv will cook up a new unscripted series based on New York’s famed Pink Tea Cup soul food restaurant, the network said Wednesday.

The six-episode series, Hustle & Soul, will follow the Brooklyn-based restaurant’s owner and head chef Lawrence Page as he looks to take the restaurant to new heights while managing staff in-fighting, power moves and love triangles, said network officials.

Hustle & Soul is executive produced by Dan Cesareo, Ken Martinez and George McTeague, and Kim Osorio serves as co-executive producer, according to the network.

“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 in a statement. “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.”
