A pair of Creve Coeur women are going Hollywood.
Judi Diamond and Kate Frasina have been given the go-ahead for a series on the cable network Nick Jr.
Nick Jr., an off-shoot of Nickolodeon, released this announcement in February about the series, which is tentatively titled The Judi & Kate Show:
A real-life, modern-day Laverne and Shirley, these two mom video bloggers have a lot to say, and the worldwide web is listening. The Judi & Kate Show is a show within a show, going inside their world for their own unique take on motherhood.
Diamond and Kate Frisina founded the blog, LipsticknLaundry.com in 2007, serving as inspiration for the series. Diamond joined last year as producer of “The Cornbread Morning Show”.
In a press release from WIL, Diamond said "Kate and I have worked so hard to bring this idea to fruition! We feel so fortunate that Coolfire Originals – the same St. Louis production team behind the Oprah Winfrey Network’s (OWN) #1 Show ‘Welcome To Sweetie Pies’ (also filmed in St. Louis) –took notice of LipsticknLaundry.com and thought we had enough to take a risk and become partners!”
Nickutopia reports the series has a 20 episode order set for a fall debut.
WIL says Diamond will continue to produce the station's morning program.
