"Life With La Toya" takes viewers inside the outrageous world of La Toya Jackson - the wild card of one of showbiz's most famous families - as she tackles love, career and maybe even parenthood, all on her own unpredictable terms. The new reality series gets up close and personal as La Toya hunts for a new house, builds new business ventures, contemplates starting a family and perhaps the biggest of all --- jumps into the dating pool for the first time, ever. On board for her new adventures are La Toya's devoted business partner Jeffré, her legendary mom and dad, a pair of meddlesome matchmakers, a magician, a lovelorn lifeguard and La Toya's lifelong best gal-pal Kathy Hilton (yes, Paris' mom). La Toya also opens up about her tumultuous past darkened by an abusive ex-husband, the death of her brother and family feuds. "Life With La Toya" is produced by World of Wonder Productions and executive produced by Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell and Jeremy Simmons with Ja-Tail Television and executive producers La Toya Jackson and Jeffré Phillips.

"Raising Whitley"

Series Premiere Saturday, April 20, 10 p.m. ET/PT

"Raising Whitley" is a humorous, poignant new docu-series following actress and comedienne Kym Whitley and her riotous collective of friends - whom she calls "The Village" - as they attempt to do something none of them have ever done before: raise a baby... together. When Kym signed up to mentor a troubled young girl, she never imagined she'd get a call from the hospital saying, "Your baby is ready." After learning that her mentee exited the maternity ward leaving only Kym's contact information, Kym experienced a cataclysmicmoment. With less than an hour to make a life-changing decision - and to do a lifetime of soul-searching - Kym chose to become a mother. The Village banded together to help Kym bring up baby Joshua the best they knowhow, but sometimes it's hard to tell who is more mature - Joshua or the adults tasked with raising him. Over the season, Kym learns the chaotic realities of becoming a full-time mom: She realizes that, while Craigslist may be perfect for finding an old couch, it's not ideal for finding a new nanny; she survives Joshua's first haircut; she gets her groove back on a manhunt with her girlfriends; and she discovers that being "just friends" with Joshua's "daddy" may not be that simple. "Raising Whitley" is produced by Pilgrim Studios and executive produced by Craig Piligian, Melodie Calvert and Kym Whitley.
