The Style Network Proves Everything Is Bigger in the Lone Star State With the Series Premiere of "Big Rich Texas" on Sunday, July 17 at 9:00 PM ET/PT

New Docu-Series Examines the Unique and Often Complicated Relationship Between Mothers and Daughters

(Los Angeles, CA, June 20, 2011) - The phrase "everything's bigger in Texas " has never rung more true. Big hair, big attitudes and big drama all come together in The Style Network's new docu-series "Big Rich Texas." Following five mother-daughter duos, the show gives viewers a unique look into the competitive and privileged lives of these movers-and-shakers as they cement a place for themselves in Dallas's high society. From grand Texas estates to an exclusive country club, "Big Rich Texas" gushes with tons of shopping, cocktails and indulgence. Yet, at its core, the focus always returns to the surprising and wonderful relationships between mothers and daughters. It's universally relatable, no matter what club you belong to. The 10-episode one-hour series premieres on Sunday, July 17th at 9:00pm ET/PT on Style.

Throughout the series we see the ladies settle into the social season at the country club. New club members spark fast friendships -- and faster jealousies. Relationships are tested when one of the mothers commits the ultimate faux-pas and begins dating a club employee, and a fiery debate on parenting erupts when one of the daughters gets a vulgar tattoo. There is also no shortage of romantic intrigue as ex-husbands hit on new friends and surprise visitors shake up the status quo at the club house. Despite all the intrigue and frivolity, these mothers and daughters have one very important thing in common - an unshakeable love and bond between them.

MEET THE BELLES:

Connie and Grace

Connie recently got out of her marriage and is ready to begin a new chapter in her life. Connie relishes her role as social chair at the club which allows her to throw fabulous events and always be plugged into the gossip pipeline of Dallas society. Her daughter, Grace, is a popular teen at her high school who is trying as hard as she can to achieve her dream of becoming head cheerleader.

Leslie and Kalyn

Leslie is Connie's cousin and a jet-setting pageant coach. She owns homes across the country but has recently moved to Dallas to take on the pageant capital by storm and launch the pageant career of her goddaughter, Kalyn. Leslie is an unabashed, undeniable cougar, having dated the much younger Anthony Dorsett Jr., and an even younger golf pro at the club named AJ. These aren't exactly the lessons Leslie wants to teach Kalyn, who has her own issues fitting in with the Texas elite.

Pamela and Hannah

Married to a gorgeous, successful husband and mother to two beautiful daughters, Pamela calls it like she sees it...and calls it bluntly. She is an accomplished author, chairwoman of the Luxury Marketing Council and the epitome of southern class. Her connections and influence make her a center of power at the club, and she's determined to ensure her daughter Hannah follows in her footsteps. After finishing her first year at college, Hannah is home for the summer and Pamela has decided to make Hannah her assistant. What better way to increase her daughter's profile in society - and keep a watchful eye on her. This duo should be familiar to Style viewers as they were last seen on the network's series "Dallas Divas & Daughters."

Bonnie and Whitney

Bonnie proves you cannot judge a book by its cover. She can party with the best of them, but beneath her big hair and big mouth, Bonnie is a professor with a PhD in biology. Her daughter Whitney, however, is less disciplined. One day she wants to go to medical school; the next she can't imagine giving up a party to study. More like best friends than mother and daughter, this wild pair has constant arguments about who is "hotter." As a self-made millionaire, Bonnie made her own way and thinks the world's rules don't apply to her...especially the stuffy country club rules.

Melissa and Maddie

After 15 years off the runway, Melissa is stepping back into the harsh and competitive world of modeling. From staying in tip-top shape to dealing with countless rejections, Melissa is determined to succeed in an industry she turned her back on when she had her daughter, Maddie. Maddie is now fifteen and ready to start dating boys, but Melissa is determined to keep her drama queen daughter on a short leash.

"Big Rich Texas" begins airing Sunday, July 17 at 9:00pm ET/PT on The Style Network.

The series is produced by Fly On The Wall Entertainment. Executive Producers are Allison Grodner and Rich Meehan and Spike Van Briesen, along with Style's Sarah Weidman and Merah Chung .
