From prom dresses to mother-of-the bride gowns, leopard print to gold sequins, Diane & Co. has it all. Owned by the Scali family, Diane & Co. is the fashion playground for Diane's daughters, Kimberly and Christina, who are the eyes into this world of high fashion and family hi-jinks. Kimberly's business sense and Christina's fairytale aspirations make a great combination, but mixing family with business sometimes proves to have its challenges.

"Jersey Couture" is produced by Magilla Entertainment with Brian Flanagan and Matthew Ostrom serving as executive producers.

This critically acclaimed series returns for season two with new host, Mel B. The hybrid dance/weight loss competition series features talented, full-figured contestants who take to the stage to unleash their inner thin. They will battle each other on the dance floor - as well as on the scale -- for a shot at a $100,000 grand prize. The expert panel of judges includes Lisa Ann Walter, Danny Teeson and a weekly guest judge. Magical Elves' Dan Cutforth, Jane Lipsitz and Charlie Haykel serve as executive producers. Lisa Ann Walter conceived the original "Dance Your Ass Off" and executive produces along with Kate Rigg.

"BGC Miami" - Premieres in August

The fifth season premiere of "Bad Girls Club" hits the beaches of Miami this summer. In this fan favorite series, seven self-proclaimed "bad girls" live together in a beautiful mansion. In a house full of women with similarly explosive personalities, clashes constantly erupt between roommates and housemates. Season four posted record ratings in first quarter 2010 and made network history as the best performing series ever. "Bad Girls Club" is produced by Bunim-Murray Productions.

"Hair Battle Spectacular" - Premieres in August

Hosted by actress Brooke Burns, "Hair Battle Spectacular" is a competition series that pits 10 of America's hottest stylists against each other to see who can deliver the biggest and best in fantasy hair design. Part sculpture and part pop art, each challenge will require the stylists to create outrageous hair designs that resemble everything from multi-layer wedding cakes to toys with moveable pieces. But in the end, only one hairdo will be left standing. The stylists present their hair creations in classic �Hair Battle' mode: live and out loud with a fully produced, dramatic and stylized performance. After each challenge, the judges: award-winning fantasy hair designer Derek J, celebrity stylist Lindsay Albanese and a rotating guest judge, critique the designers on creativity, execution and overall presentation. In addition to spectacular blow-by-blow drama on the hair battle runway, there is also the day-to-day drama between the cohabitating stylists who fight each week to stay in the battle and win the ultimate prize of $100,000. "Hair Battle Spectacular" is produced by 3 Ball Productions with JD Roth, Todd Nelson, Adam Greener, and Mike Nichols serving as executive producers.
