(truTV) The Shake Up is a fun, competition series that seeks to settle once and for all which bar owner has the best recipe for success.

The result is a wild rollercoaster ride of comical conflicts and one-upmanship as the bosses compete to see who can win over new staff and customers with their charm and skill.
