ABC Family Orders Two Reality Series

‘Dancing Fools,' ‘The Vineyard' to Premiere This Summer

ABC Family has greenlit two new reality series as the network continues to expand into unscripted programming.

The half-hour unscripted comedy Dancing Fools will be hosted by Melissa Peterman, star of the network's comedy series Baby Daddy. Dancing is from creator/executive producer Phil Gurin and produced by the Gurin Company.

The Vineyard is a docu-soap following a group of 20-somethings summering in Martha's Vineyard. The series is created and executive produced by Dave Broome and Brian Smith and produced by 25/7 Productions.

Both series will premiere this summer along with new scripted dramasThe Fosters and Twisted. Dancing Fools and The Vineyard follow ABC Family's reality effort last summer, Beverly Hills Nannies, which was not renewed.
