Punk Rock Reality Star Chef?!

Planet Green, the eco-conscious arm of the Discovery Channel, is developing a pilot on Michelle Garcia's punk rock pastry shop Bleeding Heart Bakery in Roscoe Village:

"Bleeding Heart is the nation's first totally organic bakery. The bakery is dedicated to delivering organic, sustainable, and delicious food but it's certainly not Betty Crocker's shop. Maintaining order among the tattooed, pierced, and sometimes unruly staff is a major challenge, to say nothing of the difficulties of starting and running a small business. Watch as the unbleached flour flies in this exciting reality series."
