LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Lifetime is heading to the nation's capital, green-lighting an unscripted series starring a trio of twentysomething socialites who want to make their mark on Washington both socially and professionally.

The six-episode series, "Blonde Charity Mafia," takes its name from an exclusive group of young women who make the rounds of Washington's social circuit. The show will feature Katherine Kennedy and Krista Johnson, who are said to throw hot-ticket charity functions, as well as their acquaintance Sophie Pyle, who always is in attendance at the events.

"Katherine, Krista and Sophie are at the epicenter of Georgetown's young cultural scene," Lifetime senior vice president of reality programming Jessica Samet said. "This absorbing series will pull the curtain back on the fragility of friendship among the beautiful, wealthy and powerful."
