TLC SERVES UP A DOUBLE DOSE OF BUDDY VALASTRO

CAKE BOSS premieres season 6, plus new pilot BAKERY BOSS, on Monday, May 27

Memorial Day gets a whole lot sweeter this year as America's favorite baker returns for an all-new season of the hit series CAKE BOSS, with Buddy Valastro, his family, and entire crew tackling more of the confectionary challenges that have made the series a global phenomenon. Buddy also hits the road looking to help a struggling family-run bakery evaluate their every ingredient and technique and turn their business into a success in the new pilot BAKERY BOSS. Both programs premiere back-to-back on Monday, May 27 starting at 9/8c.

Season 6 of CAKE BOSS premieres at 9/8c, picking up days after Hurricane Sandy devastated the area, with Buddy and the crew returning to Carlo's to assess the damage it's left behind. With no electricity and clients who still need cake orders, the team will have to work their decorating magic in near darkness, and look to find ways to support the community working to recover from the storm.

In the second episode, at 9:30/8:30c, Buddy is asked to create a special cake for Good Morning America's Robin Roberts. The pressure's on for the team to deliver a cake that will wow the beloved Robin - and millions of viewers. Plus, Mauro makes a cake for a spinning instructor who wants to honor his mentor.

The sugar high continues at 10/9c with the new pilot BAKERY BOSS, finding Buddy seeking out a struggling family bakery to help transform into a dough-making success. For the one-hour special, Buddy travels to Frankfort, NY to visit Friendly Bake Shop, an Italian-American bakery run by three generations of the Viti family. Open for 52 years, the business is suffering from outdated processes, broken equipment, and an old-school philosophy on running a small-town business.

At the center of the hopeful revamp is Tony, who left a successful career in Kentucky to return home to the family business after his father was diagnosed with cancer. Now, along with his dad, uncles, aunt, and cousins, they are determined to bring the bakery out of the 1970's and re-establish it as a business that can be passed down for even more generations. Buddy brings his world-famous blend of business skills and baking expertise to work with this family and challenge them to make big changes all in an effort to transform their crumbling dream into a dough-making enterprise.

CAKE BOSS and BAKERY BOSS are both produced for TLC by High Noon Entertainment.
