TV Guide Network Orders 'Hollywood Moms Night,' Wilson Phillips Show to Series
TV Guide Network is moving forward with both Hollywood Moms Night and Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On.
The projects, both of which premiered as specials in November, will be turned into weekly series set to air in the first half of 2012.
Moms Night, a five-episode series centering on best friends Alison Sweeney (Days of Our Lives, The Biggest Loser) and Ali Landry (Eve, Spy TV), is slated to air in March. The entry will go behind the scenes at the women's long-running potluck dinner tradition with fellow celebrity moms Denise Richards, Niecy Nash and LaLa Anthony.
The series is being produced by Ellen Rakieten Entertainment and RelativityREAL with Ellen Rakieten, Tom Forman and Brad Bishop serving as executive producers. Sweeney and Landry will also serve as EPs.
Wilson Phillips, an eight-episode series that chronicles the comeback of rocker sisters Carnie Wilson and Wendy Wilson and best friend Chynna Phillips, will bow in April, timed to coincide with the release of their new Sony album Dedicated.
RelativityREAL is producing this effort as well, with Tom Forman, Jay Blumenfield, Tony Marsh and Brad Bishop serving as executive producers. Additionally, David Simone and Winston Simone of DSW Entertainment will serve as EPs.
“We are pleased to expand our relationships with two of the most celebrated reality producers and deliver series that bring viewers closer to Hollywood life and celebrities,” said TV Guide Network chairman Allen Shapiro.
