WE tv later this year will launch spinoff series for two of its more popular reality shows, Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars and Growing Up Hip Hop, network officials said Wednesday.
New series Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Family Edition will debut April 28 and will feature a cast of dysfunctional celebrity families dealing with well-publicized rifts with the help of therapists Dr. Ish Major and Dr. Venus Nicolino, said network officials. Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta will move the music-themed reality series down south to follow the lives of up and coming hip hop stars growing up in the shadow of their well-known parents, said WE tv. The series will debut later this year.
“Both Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars and Growing Up Hip Hop are standout series in their own right and have become important franchises for WE tv, helping to solidify the network as a destination for viewers on Thursdays and Fridays who seek out great stories and big personalities,” said Marc Juris, president of WE tv in a statement. “With more stories to tell and more fascinating personalities to follow, the time was right to expand each of these series through compelling spinoffs that focus on the complicated and wholly relatable dynamic of families.”
