  • Nikki Anhalt and Sarah Adams will soon be on the Food Network
We've written a lot about Sarah Adams and Nikki Anhalt this past year. The chef and FIG bartender respectively are the duo behind dinner series Bad Bitches. After launching last year, their female-fronted pop-up series quickly won the hearts of Charleston eaters. Now they've caught the eye of the a channel that rhymes with mood network. According to Adams, the Bad Bitches will have their own show soon on the channel.

"We got approached by a bunch of different production companies all winter," says Adams. In fact, the two nearly filmed a Ford car commercial last summer. "I guess people find this shit on the internet? I don’t even know. We each had a lot of interest." But the women hesitated to commit to a film company. "We held off because we wanted to work with the right people." Well, they've found them. High Noon Entertainment, the same producers behind Cake Boss and Fixer Upper, is handling the filming for their yet-to-be-named show. 

Right now Anhalt and Adams are conceptualizing the show with High Noon. "The way it works is they pick up characters. They want to fall in love with the person first," says Adams. So what audiences may eventually see is still in discussion. What we do know is the show will be what Adams calls scripted reality, and it will be shot in Charleston. The name is also still up in the air, but something tells us "Bad Bitches" might not fly on basic cable. 

The duo's next filming will take place at their upcoming Aunt Harriet's dinner on June 26, and from there it's just a matter of hearing from the channel on whether they want a formal pilot or if the show will go straight to series.
