TLC Fall lineup

TLC confirmed it has started production on the new series CANDY QUEEN, taking viewers into the edible empire of Jackie Sorkin as she balances running her growing candy & events business with the demands of being a wife, mother and workaholic. Half Yard Productions is producing the six-part half-hour series for TLC, which premieres this winter. 
Jackie and her team - the "Candy Crew" - spend their days and nights building outrageous candy creations to make each of their client's sweetest dreams come true. Now, she's expanding her operations and taking on more ever-challenging business, which means Jackie must rely on her husband and her parents more than ever... or risk total meltdown. 
"Candy Queen joins TLC's larger-than-life workplace series, like CAKE BOSS and LA INK, revealing the mouthwatering art of Jackie's business and the sweet and sour side of balancing a career, a family, and everything else," said Howard Lee, SVP, Production & Development, TLC. 

TLC has announced a sneak peek at its fall line-up, when it is scheduling more than 140 hours of all-new series, specials, and seasons from September through the end of 2011. Building on a year that already has 23 series averaging more than 1 million viewers each, and ranking as a top 10 network for women, the upcoming slate will continue the network's focus on compelling people living extraordinary lives.
