About “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s”
On an all-new season of “Welcome To Sweetie Pie’s,” viewers will rejoin the “first family of soul food,” following Miss Robbie and her son Tim through the ups and downs of running their rapidly expanding soul food empire, along with a few new faces getting schooled in the art of soul food. With the fate of the Beale Street restaurant still undecided, Tim hustles to open the family’s first drive-thru location in St. Louis. Seeking to right a past wrong, Miss Robbie heads back in the studio to record a song she was forbidden to sing back in the ‘60s. Later, in an unforgettable episode, the family faces the civil unrest in Ferguson following the shooting of Michael Brown, and Tim plays a key role in bringing the community together. Through it all, the entire Sweetie Pie’s family serves up every situation with a perfect mix of humor, drama, heart, and soul.
“Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s” is produced by Pilgrim Studios. Executive producers are Craig Piligian, Melodie Calvert, Jeff Keane, Tim Breitbach and Steve Luebbert.
