Zee Cafe lines up new reality and comedy shows, new seasons of ‘Will & Grace’, ‘Caroline in the City’

Zee Café has announced the launch of a new reality show, ‘The Cut’, hosted by fashion label Tommy Hilfiger. ‘The Cut’ will hit television screens on May 12 in the 9 pm slot. In addition to this, the channel is also launching ‘Comedy INC’ and new seasons of its shows ‘Will & Grace’ and ‘Caroline in the City’.

An official communiqué stated, “In a unique initiative, the first episode of ‘The Cut’ will be shown ‘Uncut’, that is, commercial free. ‘The Cut’ features 16 contestants, who try to outdo each other for an opportunity to design their own collection under the Tommy Hilfiger label, for a salary of $250,000. The contestants must complete a series of tasks that showcase their design and business skills to prove that they have what it takes to make “the cut” in the fashion world.”

The episodes are of 60 minutes each and the series will feature celebrity guests like Jennifer Lopez, designer Karl Lagerfeld and Jamie-Lynn DiScala (of ‘The Sopranos’ fame).

The other new show, ‘Comedy INC’, premiers on May 9 in the 9.30 pm slot. The communiqué added, “‘Comedy INC’ is a mix of fast-paced humour and irreverence, featuring sketch, TV and movie parody, non-existent cable shows, ads for products that don’t exist and characters that will become fixtures of popular culture for years to come. Whether it’s ‘Big Brother’, ‘The Sopranos’, ‘Lord of the Rings’, Tom Cruise or Michael Jackson, nothing and no one is safe! The world seen through the eyes of the ‘Comedy Inc’ team is often just a step away from reality.”

For ‘Will & Grace’, this is season 7, which premieres on May 9 at 10:00 pm and for ‘Caroline in the City’, it is Season 4, which premieres on May 9 at 10:30 pm.
