Lifetime Orders 'Blonde Charity Mafia,' a New Docu-Series Set in the Fast-Paced, High-Society World of Washington, D.C.

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 20 -- Blonde ambition meets philanthropy in the new Lifetime docu-series, "Blonde Charity Mafia," which follows a trio of gorgeous, twenty-something, alpha girls and their quest to make a mark on Washington, D.C., both socially and professionally -- no matter what obstacles they face.

Production on the six-episode series will begin in September on location in Washington, D.C.

In the city that is home to some of the world's most important power players, one group of young women dominate the social scene, an exclusive group known as the 'Blonde Charity Mafia,' comprised of the capital's social heavy-hitters, Katherine Kennedy and Krista Johnson. Also featured is Sophie Pyle, an acquaintance of the girls, who is always in attendance at the charity functions thrown by Katherine and Krista. Their events are always a hot ticket; their dating lives are gossiped about; and sometimes merely their simple daily activities are chatter within the D.C. social set. Throwing these glamorous soirees every week, they are the young personalities of Georgetown and the darlings of the city's most fashionable clubs and hottest restaurants.

In making the announcement, Jessica Samet, Senior Vice President, Reality Programming, Lifetime Television, said, "Katherine, Krista and Sophie are at the epicenter of Georgetown's young cultural scene. This absorbing series will pull the curtain back on the fragility of friendship among the beautiful, wealthy and powerful."

Patty Ivins Specht and Julie Pizzi ("Simple Life" and MTV's "Road Rules") serve as executive producers. Jeff Kuntz is co-executive producer. "Blonde Charity Mafia" is produced by PB&J Television for Lifetime Television.
