‘Bakery Boss’ filming at Johnstown bakery
JOHNSTOWN – “Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro is filming at Grandma Millie’s Bakery at the Fulton County Airport over the next four days for the TLC show “Bakery Boss,” according to a Facebook post by Grandma Millie’s.
“We are so very proud and so beyond excited to announce our biggest news ever. … TLC’s ‘Bakery Boss’ will be in Johnstown, N.Y, and we need your help,” the Facebook post says.
People who RSVP and show up may end up on the show, the Facebook post says.
In the “Bakery Boss” series, Valastro helps struggling bakeries get back on their feet.
“We will be filming in Johnstown from Oct. 24 to Oct. 27 and we want you to be on TV. If you want to come see Buddy and what he has in store for the bakery, please come on by,” the Facebook post says.
Grandma Millie’s leases space at the airport, which is off Route 67 on County Highway 153. The business is co-owned by Chauncey McCormick.
People are asked to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“If you visit the bakery this day, there is a chance that you will be filmed for the show,” the Facebook post said.
Representatives at the site this morning said the “revealing” will take place at the site Sunday, although a time has yet to be set. They also said the show won’t air on the network for “several months.” They said Valastro had not arrived in the area as of this morning.
Representatives said this morning they were filming interviews of the owners for the show, but the owners were unable to comment on their experience to the press at this time due to signed contracts with the network.
According to a recent job posting online, the production company High Noon Entertainment was seeking local production assistants for the filming in Johnstown. No representative from the company was available for comment.
Valastro has two shows on TLC: “Cake Boss,” a series about his bakery business, and the new “Bakery Boss,” in which he offers his wisdom to struggling bakeries.
