If you can’t get enough pageant drama, then stay tuned to TLC.Â King of the Crown, a new reality series, will premiere Wednesday, September 30 at 9 PM/ET on TLC.Â Each week, you will get a look inside the Gowns and Crowns pageant training business headed up by Cy Frakes.Â Other members of the cast will include: trainer Amanda Helen Pennekamp, booking agent Kyle Taylor, and coach Shane Mason.
“The series definitely captures the essence of who I am and what I do,” said Frakes. “King of the Crown has a lot of humor but also shows that we deal with broken heels, broken nails and, of course, broken hearts. We prepare girls beyond a superficial level; we prepare them to overcome any challenge in life.”Â
“King of the Crown brings all the fun and excitement of the pageant world with a lot of southern charm,” said TLC executive Nancy Daniels. “Cy is a great personality who is not only entertaining, but a real expert in his field.Â The series has the perfect balance of high stakes and heart. It also further builds out our pageant programming.”Â
