Bravo is about to begin production on the latest “Real Housewives of Atlanta” spin-off show called “Old Lady Gang,” according to the Georgia film office.
First reported last year by theJasmineBrand as a possibility, the show will feature the soul food restaurant of the same name that Kandi Burruss and Todd Tucker first opened in 2016 in Castleberry Hill. It was based on the recipes of “the Old Lady Gang” of Burruss’ mom Joyce Jones and aunts Nora and Bertha.
Old Lady Gang was a success and led to a second one in East Point and a version inside State Farm Arena.
The film office doesn’t provide details and Bravo has not made an official announcement so it’s unclear if this series will focus exclusively on the main restaurant and its staff or cover all three locations.
It’s an echo of the now former “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” cast member Lisa Vanderpump and her restaurant spin-off series “Vanderpump Rules,” which has now gone on for eight seasons and 146 episodes.
“Old Lady Gang” will be the fourth spin-off for Burruss on Bravo since she joined the show in 2009.
The other three were “The Kandi Factory,” in which she sought potential music stars; “Kandi’s Wedding,” which focused on her marriage with Tucker; and “Kandi’s Ski Trip,” which was a one off surrounding her family high jinks on the slopes.
