Oxygen's new lineup gets in on some Jersey action
Here are two words we never thought we'd hear together: "Jersey Couture." But there they are in the title of a new Oxygen series that premieres June 1 at 10 p.m.
The docu-series follows the Scalis from New Jersey, a family that runs Diane & Co., an "extravagant women's formal wear" business that includes everything from leopard print to bedazzling ball gowns. Diane is the mom. Her daughters, Kim and Christina, are the company. It is produced by Magilla Entertainment. The show was part of a series of announcements by Oxygen Tuesday about its upcoming projects. Also coming soon are:
“Hair Battle Spectacular," which is hosted by Brooke Burns and will pit 10 hairstylists against each other in fantasy hair design. It is produced by 3 Ball Productions.
“House of Glam” is a docu-series centering on the celebrity stylists of the B Lynn Group who are best friends and fierce rivals. It is produced by Left/Right Inc. and the Foundry Media Group.
Last week, we learned about a Wayne Newton project for WeTV that will center on the women who run his life. Now, it's Russell Simmons' turn. "The Russell Simmons Project" is its working title, and it is produced by Simmons Lathan Media Group and Picture This Television.
Oxygen also announced the return of "Dance Your . . . Off" on June 7. A new season of "Bad Girls Club" will air this summer, with the bad girls living in a Miami mansion.--Maria Elena Fernandez (follow me on Twitter @writerchica)
