Atlanta Talk Show Tapes in LA

Have you heard of the Comcast regional talk show Tips and Tea?

On Saturday October 6, this three-seasons-old Atlanta program will be setting up shop at mid-city restaurant The Bistro on Pico for its first-ever LA taping. The scheduled guests are actress Tanjareen Martin, r&b singer Chyno Soul, actor-comedian Sydney Castillo and singer-songwriter Kevin Sandbloom. From the release:

Sha Dixon is the brains behind the show and beauty in front of the camera, with a background in journalism and an education from Middle TN State University… The show is best described as an informative and entertaining interview-based tea party. In a very hip and sophisticated fashion the host and guests have tea, and simply talk.

The executive chef at Bistro on Pico, Clive Jackson, previously oversaw culinary matters for Warner Bros. Studios. In Atlanta, Tips and Tea was taped at Justin’s Restaurant, an establishment owned – until its closure this summer – by Sean “P.Diddy” Combs.
