The first season of the block kicks off on Friday, October 12 at 9PM (ET/PT) with the return of Lisa Williams: Life Among the Dead" followed by the premiere of "America's Psychic Challenge" at 10PM (ET/PT).

In making the announcement, Susanne Daniels, President, Entertainment, Lifetime Networks, said, "This summer we launched our record-setting drama 'Army Wives' as the critically acclaimed anchor of a new Sunday night drama lineup. Now we're expanding our schedule with the next generation of unscripted series in January, an ideal time to launch three 'feel-good' reality series. Following the holiday season when everyone has celebrated a little too much, viewers will see how to change their body image with Carson Kressley, learn how to find a date with Matt Titus and witness how to throw an extravagant party with Brian Dobbin."

"It's My Party" follows elite party planners who throw extravagant, excessive parties and events for extremely wealthy clients. Seven episodes will showcase Brian Dobbin who, along with his volatile chef, Robin, create, design and execute wild bashes, which are known as "the Bentley of parties," for the influential Southern California elite. The second seven episodes will be shot in Las Vegas around another event planner. Each week, the episodes set in Orange County will air at 10PM (ET/PT), followed by the episodes set in Las Vegas at 10:30PM (ET/PT). Kevin Dill and Mechelle Collins serve as executive producers. "It's My Party" is produced by Intuitive Entertainment for Lifetime Television.

"Matt Titus: Matchmaker" stars relationship expert Matt Titus, a "dating agent," who matches both straight and gay singles in New York City looking for true love. Matt and his team, including his fiancee, Tamsen Fadal, attempt to expertly pair their oftentimes desperate clients who are unable to find a mate in the old-fashioned way -- from singles bars and online dating to blind dates arranged by friends. But Matt and Tamsen go beyond the usual matchmaking by skillfully coaching their clients and giving honest advice on wardrobe, hair and make-up. Mark Farrell, Mark Efman and Sara Chazen Leand serve as executive producers. The show is produced by MarkMark Productions for Lifetime Television.

Matt Titus is a Manhattan dating and relationship coach, matchmaker and lifestyle expert who successfully matches singles and helps them find true love. What sets Titus apart is the fact he delivers relationship advice from the perspective of a man who played the field, learned from his mistakes and was given a second chance at love. He has been featured on many network and syndicated talk shows. He also appeared on E! as a celebrity relationship commentator in "To Love and Cry in L.A." and guest-starred on the Style Network's "Relationship Rehab." Among others publications, Titus has been featured in Men's Health, Time Out and Life & Style as the publication's "Love Doctor." Titus speaks monthly at the Learning Annex, teaching singles the secrets to successful dating. His new book, Why Hasn't He Called?, is being released in February 2008. He also answers questions daily on his website SassyBean.com, where he spills the beans on life, love and relationships. Titus lives in Manhattan with his fiancee, Tamsen Fadal, and their two Chihuahuas, Matsen and Parker.

Based on the format of the U.K.'s Channel 4 series and hosted by Carson Kressley ("Queer Eye for the Straight Guy"), "How To Look Good Naked" teaches women of all shapes and sizes how to go from self loathing to self loving without resorting to interventions like extreme dieting or cosmetic surgery. Riaz Patel (MTV's "Why Can't I Be You"), Chris Coelen, Greg Goldman and Alex Fraser serve as executive producer. "How To Look Good Naked" is produced by RDF Media (Wife Swap") and Maverick TV for Lifetime Television.
