Oxygen is bulking up its unscripted roster, ordering three projects to series, including a makeover show from the producers of The Biggest Loser.
The youngest women’s network said Monday that it has greenlighted three unscripted efforts to series and ordered a pilot for a hidden-camera entry. The three series — first announced as part of Oxygen’s October slate of five — include Fat Girl Revenge, from The Biggest Loser‘s JD Roth, Todd A. Nelson, Brant Pinvidic, Adam Kaloustian and Jenn Duncan and Eyeworks USA.

Also gaining series orders are Find Me My Man (previously known as Heart and Soul), centering on Miami matchmaker Natalie Clarice as she runs an agency setting up urban professional women. The series hails from Endemol USA and Jason Sands. Too Young to Marry? revolves around teen couples determined to say “I do” despite the objections of friends and family. A. Smith & Co.’s Arthur Smith, Kent Weed, Frank Sinton and Adriane Hooper exec produce.
Hidden-camera effort Propos’d revolves around marriage-obsessed women who push their partners for an engagement as they finally get a taste of their own medicine when their boyfriends come up with hilarious proposal stunts. In the end, however, the ladies finally get the ring they’d had their eyes on. The project, which has received a pilot order, hails from 11 Television (Destination Fear) with Kevin Healey and Jesse Fawcett on board to exec produce.

“By embracing these larger-than-life characters, these new series capture dynamic stories of determination and heart that will leave viewers feeling a range of emotions,” Oxygen’s senior vp programming and development Rod Aissa said. “Building upon Oxygen’s creative momentum, these authentic, ‘live out loud’ series are integral to super-serving our young female audience with more high stakes, noisy hooks and unexpected moments.”
The three series will join an unscripted roster at the network that includes modeling competition series The Face, returning series Best Ink and I’m Having Their Baby. A decision on a third season of the network’s buzzy hit The Glee Project has yet to be determined as Fox has yet to renew Glee for a fifth season.
