HOLLYWOOD—The channel once known for promoting knowledge, now better known for pushing the boundaries of good taste, has a new reality show. The format will present mismatched roommates trying to learn from their differences. It may also result in excessive hair pulling, if producers are lucky.
“I am pleased to announce the pairing of two of society’s most controversial and beloved figures – Kim Davis and Caitlyn Jenner,” said head of TLC programming, Kimberly Elm. “It’s more than we ever could have hoped for. Better even than the series we pitched with Josh Duggar: Two Scandals and Counting.”
The show will have the duo living in a modern loft-style apartment. All the usual reality show props will be on tap, including a well-stocked bar, fabricated employment and surprise guests.
“After much discussion about where to film the series, we decided on Atlanta,” said Elm. “It’s a metropolitan city that offers plenty of shooting locations and distractions, but it’s still the South. Neither star will be totally out of their element, but both gals will be well outside their comfort zone.”
The show will be part of TLC’s premier week, happening in late September. Other new programs include What Now? starring retired late night television show hosts and Animal Dentistry with Walter Palmer.
