Kandi Burruss' "Dysfunctional" Family and OLG Staff Are Serving Drama in New Series Kandi & The Gang
Kandi & The Gang will follow Kandi's OLG team, including Todd Tucker and Mama Joyce, premiering this March.
Life is about to get a little sweeter — and, yes, a tad more dramatic — in a new series that follows Kandi Burruss' family and staff, who just so happen to work at her famed Old Lady Gang restaurant. Make your reservations: Kandi & The Gang premieres on Sunday, March 6 at 9/8c.
OLG is an Atlanta hotspot in Kandi and Todd Tucker's growing restaurant empire, and the series will turn up the heat and take fans inside the family-owned and operated eatery, revealing that mixing business and family can sometimes create a recipe for tension.
"Four years ago, my husband Todd and I started a family restaurant called Old Lady Gang. OLG was a hit," Kandi says in the trailer, above, with Todd adding, "But now it's dysfunctional. Between your family and some of that staff, those people are crazy in there."
The series will follow Kandi and Todd, as well as The OLGs (Mama Joyce Jones, Aunt Nora Wilcox, and Aunt Bertha Jones), Kandi's longtime right-hand man DonJuan Clark, and other members of the OLG team, including Phillip Frempong, Shawndreca Robinson, Dom’Unique Variety, Torin Mitchell, Brandon Black, Patrick Dallas, Brian Redmond, Melvin Jones, and Rashard Roles.
It's clear that the OLG staff isn't just serving up tasty food but also plenty of drama for your mama (Joyce).
According to a press release, the series "chronicles Kandi, Todd and OLG’s dynamic staff as they face a much-needed change at the restaurant while juggling their career ambitions, larger-than-life personalities and personal lives. After being hit with a myriad of obstacles, Kandi and Todd step in with a plan to turn the tide. With tensions rising as family members don’t perform up to standards, a little tough love and a lot of restructuring will shake things up with the staff, whether they’re ready for it or not."
Kandi & The Gang is produced by Truly Original, Kandi Koated Entertainment, T Tucker Productions with Kandi Burruss, Todd Tucker, Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin, Lorraine Haughton-Lawson, Julie "Bob" Lombardi, Camilo Valdes, and Ronica Wynder serving as executive producers.
