[via press release from Bravo]

BRAVO MEDIA'S GEORGIA PEACHES, KIM ZOLCIAK & KANDI BURRUSS, OWN TUESDAYS WITH NEW & RETURNING SERIES CAPTURING THE SWEET LIFE OF ATLANTA

Zolciak's "Don't Be Tardy..." Season 2 Premieres Tuesday, April 9 with Back-to-Back Episodes at 9PM & 9:30PM ET/PT

Immediately Following, Series Premiere of "The Kandi Factory" Airs at 10PM ET/PT

NEW YORK - February 28, 2013 - Bravo Media's "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" stars Kim Zolciak and Kandi Burruss keep it real with their southern charm and no-nonsense personalities as "Don't Be Tardy..." and "The Kandi Factory" take over Tuesdays. Zolciak's spin-off, which follows newlyweds Kim and Kroy as they juggle married life and their ever-growing family, premieres with back-to-back episodes on Tuesday, April 9 at 9 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. ET/PT. Debuting immediately after at 10 p.m. ET/PT, is the series premiere of "The Kandi Factory," which follows Grammy Award winner Burruss as she mentors aspiring musical artists on their potential journeys to stardom.

It's only been a year since Kim Zolciak's million-dollar wedding to the Atlanta Falcons defensive end Kroy Biermann, but a lot has changed in the newlyweds' life. This season as their family grows even bigger with the addition of a fourth child, Kash Kade, they're working on remodeling their new home while Kroy and his team are enjoying an extremely successful football season with the hopes of making it to the Super Bowl. But as everyone knows, the path to success isn't without some bumps in the road. The Biermanns are living in tight quarters in Kim's old townhouse, impatient for the seemingly endless construction to finish; Kim's daughters, who've had their mother all to themselves for most of their lives, now have to share her with their young siblings. To make matters worse, Kim's parents, who haven't spoken to their daughter since Kim kicked them out of her wedding, are dragging her to court for visitation with their granddaughters. Kim refuses to let any of this bring down her spirits because as she says, "Just ask, believe and receive."

"The Kandi Factory" follows former member of the platinum-selling music group Xscape and Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter Kandi Burruss as she helps 16 aspiring artists jumpstart their dreams of success in the music industry. Having written mega-hits like "No Scrubs," for TLC and "Bills, Bills, Bills" and "Bug A Boo" for Destiny's Child, Kandi is a music veteran with an incredible eye for talent. In each stand-alone episode, she will put everything on the line by offering two protégés with no industry experience an opportunity of a lifetime - to master the key elements that make a star and a chance to fulfill their dreams. Kandi recognizes something special in each of the contestants and through the process she hopes to discover the next rising star.

From rocky recording sessions to stumbling through choreography, the transformations that the contestants undergo are a must-see as the show takes viewers through the gut-wrenching process of their makeovers with Kandi and her team of experts - comprised of producer Don Vito, choreographer Victor Jackson and stylist Kwame Waters. Don Vito, a sought-after producer, has worked on multiple genres in the music industry including Kim Zolciak's breakout single "Tardy for the Party." Victor is a Georgia-born choreographer who has worked on performances for artists including Lil Wayne, En Vogue and Chante Moore. And, with a stellar track record as a professional wardrobe stylist, Kwame is a personal shopper for some of the industry's chart toppers including Perri "Pebbles" Reid, Tiny and En Vogue. The winner of each episode who creates a lasting impression on Kandi and her team will score the ultimate career break - an original song based on their personal life and written by Kandi herself, plus, a music video produced by her accomplished team.
