Isobel Lomax and Dolly Biddle are two ‘mature’ cable-access cooking show hostesses who have hated each other for 30 years, ever since Larry Biddle dated one and then married the other.  Now when  circumstances have put them together on a TV show called The Kitchen Witches, the insults are flying harder than the food!

 

Dolly’s long-[suffering TV-producer son Stephen tries to keep them on track, but as long as Dolly’s dressing room is one inch closer to the set than Isobel’s, it’s a losing battle, and the show becomes a rating smash as Dolly and Isobel top both Martha Stewart and Jerry Springer!
