Kate McCartney and Kate McLennan, the stars of hit web series The Katering Show, will this year debut a new, full-length comedy series called Get Krack!n’.
While they took on the tropes of cooking shows in The Katering Show, Get Krack!n’ will offer the Kates’ acerbic comedic take on breakfast TV.
ABC’s synopsis reads:
“With no sense of on-camera technique, the Kate’s will shuffle through a roster of unsafe demonstrations, surly guests, underprepared experts and the over-lit decomposition of the duo’s already rocky relationship. Like any televisual format that The Kates put their rough, manly hands to, things on Get Krack!n’ will go downhill fast. Frankly, whatever the hour, an audience deserves better.”
The Kates gained a huge following when their satirical cooking YouTube series premiered in 2015, notching up millions of views. ABC came onboard for the second season, which premiered on iview in 2016 and was later aired on free-to-air TV.
Unlike The Katering Show, Get Krack!n’ is produced specifically for ABC TV, and is a full-length series, with eight half-hour episodes.
Get Krack!n is produced by Guesswork Television, the company behind the second season of The Katering Show.
The series will air at some point during 2017. No broadcast dates have been confirmed.
