LA-based prodco LMNO Productions (CBS’ I Get That A Lot, TLC’s The Little Couple) has entered into an exclusive partnership with J&D Foods’ Justin Esch and Dave Lefkow, better known as The Bacon Boys, to develop a primetime reality series.

The Bacon Boys (not to be confused with The Bacon Brothers), based in Seattle, are on a self-described “never-ending quest to make everything taste like bacon” and have created assorted products to that end, including BaconSalt and the “Bacon Coffin” (pictured), presumably for those who want their afterlife experience to smell like a good, hearty breakfast.

LMNO traveled to Seattle to capture the frenzy surrounding the unveiling of the coffin for the upcoming series.

“Casting is at the center of all of our development at LMNO,” said Lori Rothschild, VP of development for the prodco. “We are constantly on the lookout for break-out characters like Justin and Dave.”

“A reality TV show based on our bacon-flavored antics will either make entertaining television, mark the doom of our society, or (most likely) accomplish both at once,” added Esch and Lefkow via a joint statement.
