Los Angeles, April 12, 2011 - The Style Network has a slate of new series in development for the 2011-2012 television season that features a broad range of programming genres, along with new concepts, stars and locales. Included in the mix are weekly series focusing on fitness, organization and fashion, an inspirational family docudrama, a docuseries on expectant mothers preparing to give their children up for adoption, as well as a new half-hour lifestyle topical weekly series.

"We are extremely happy to have assembled this compelling line-up of new programming for our viewers," said Salaam Coleman Smith, President, The Style Network.

Style viewers are well-rounded women with lots of different interests, and it is always our goal to find new and exciting ways to look at life, and to share those with our audience."

Among the series currently in development at Style are (all titles are tentative and subject to change prior to broadcast):

Birth Moms

This is an intimate and emotional docu-series set inside Orem, Utah's Adoption Center of Choice, a residential home where expectant mothers complete their pregnancies before giving up their babies for adoption. Having completed their 1,000th adoption in 2009, The Adoption Center provides expectant mothers with a safe and loving haven, a vast network of support, and the opportunity to change their lives for the better as they transition through this complicated and often scary time.

The Amandas

Birmingham, Alabama's Amanda LeBlanc is obsessed - with organizing, sanitizing and modernizing. In this formatted home makeover show, the self-proclaimed control freak is a detail-focused organizing specialist whose Southern charm masks a killer desire to get the job done right ... and right now. Accompanied by a team of like-minded "Amandas," Ms. LeBlanc takes no prisoners once she has honed in on her target, and you best just get out of the way when she enters your home on her mission.

Single With 7

This powerful and inspiring reality family drama centers around 29 year-old Yesi Ortiz, an afternoon DJ at L.A.'s Power 106 FM radio. Yesi is much more than a DJ however; she is also "mom" to the seven nieces and nephews who were put into foster care when her sister was sent to prison. One by one, Yesi has gained legal custody of her family and is determined to keep them together at any cost, while also pursuing her own career goals and personal aspirations.

Lifestyle Weekly Series

This new topical weekly half-hour series, co-hosted by Adrianne Curry, Vivica A. Fox, Nick Verreos and Ali Fedotowsky, will tackle anything and everything that's of interest to Style viewers. From exciting in-studio guests, to product demos, makeover segments, field segments and a studio audience, this new daily show will be just as Style-ish as it is informative and fun.

Are You Dressed?

This innovative concept is part game show, part fashion show, and 100% fun. Shoppers are ambushed after entering their dressing rooms, and greeted by our host who begins an on-the-spot trivia game that includes fashion, celebrities, and pop culture. If answered correctly, they earn cash and all kinds of great prizes.

Miss Fit

Boston's Miss Fit Club is a women-only fitness club run by Katie Boyd, a former beauty queen. Beneath the beauty queen exterior, however, beats the heart of a drill sergeant as Katie pushes her clients - both pageant hopefuls and suburban moms - through their paces. With equal parts tough love and laughter, Katie is a force to be reckoned with as she helps her clients reach their fitness goals while learning a lot about life and themselves along the way.

The Riveras

Set in colorful Queens, NY, this docu-series follows the playfully unfiltered lives of The Riveras, a Puerto Rican family who own two neighborhood dance studios.
