Lawrence Page, Head Chef and Owner of Famed Brooklyn-based Soul Food Restaurant, The Pink Tea Cup, Will Stop at Nothing to Obtain Michelin Star Status

NEW YORK, NY (February 14, 2017) - WE tv is serving up another side of drama during its popular Thursday night lineup; with the addition of its new culinary docu-series "Hustle & Soul," premiering Thursday, March 16th at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The six-episode, one-hour series from Big Fish Entertainment follows Lawrence Page (Chef LP), owner and head chef of The Pink Tea Cup (PTC) restaurant. Lawrence resurrected the former West Village landmark and moved to the Fort Greene, Brooklyn on his quest to rise to the next level and score a coveted Michelin star.

While Lawrence struggles to find the perfect recipe for success, he and his team will learn that it takes more than just good cooking and a good-looking staff to become Michelin elite. Heading up The Pink Tea Cup crew as General Manager is Lawrence's hot-tempered girlfriend Ana. She may support Lawrence and his lofty culinary goal, but she's ready to be more than just the first lady of the PTC - she wants to be the ONLY lady in his life (aside from his overly opinionated Mom, aka Momma Page). However, the other female employees have their own motives; including Sana, the flighty flirty hostess who is not afraid to stand up to Ana and go after everything she wants; Thandi, the PTC's lead server who is next in line to move up; and Candice, the head bartender who is as sweet as her drinks, but far from Michelin ready. The twins, Dominic and Stef, provide some much-needed comic relief at the restaurant where they can't seem to get anything right.

Lawrence has his hands full between running a restaurant and trying to manage his staff's cat fights, power moves, and love triangles. Can he keep his eye on the prize while preventing his personal and professional life from going up in flames, or will his dream ultimately blow up in his face? Tune-In Thursday, March 16th at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
