"DATING NAKED" PREMIERES THURSDAY, JULY 17TH AT 9:00PM*
The series will play with the idea of what it really means to be naked in the search for love. Would your quest be more successful if you truly had nothing to hide? There's no clothing, no jewelry, no phones and no conventions of society. Just you. Filmed in Panama, each close-ended episode will feature a man and a woman as they each date two different, naked suitors and each other.
"Dating Naked" was created and is produced by Lighthearted Entertainment. Executive producers are Howard Schultz, Rob LaPlante and Jeff Spangler. Executive Producers for VH1 are Susan Levison, Jill Holmes, Kristen Kelly and Fernando Mills.
"CANDIDLY NICOLE" PREMIERES THURSDAY, JULY 17TH AT 10:00PM*
"Candidly Nicole," produced by Telepictures and World of Wonder and based on the successful AOL online series of the same name, is set to premiere with 8 half-hour episodes. Voted one of the "best Twitter feeds" by Time magazine, Richie will take audiences on a fun and intimate ride through her own amusing point-of-view based on her outlandish reflections on social media (where she has more than four million followers). The show will detail her daily adventures and give insight into her decisions on style, relationships, her work life and her journey into adulthood. Whether it's having a discussion with her dad about who his favorite daughter is on Father's Day, meeting with a doctor about having her tramp stamp removed or helping her best friend find a date, Nicole has no problem offering her uncensored opinion to everyone she meets (even if they didn't ask for it). Her one-of-a-kind, tongue-in-cheek commentary inspires people to laugh, learn and shake their head in wonderment.
"Candidly Nicole" will be produced by Telepictures and World of Wonder. Nicole Richie, Michael Baum, Carrie Franklin, Randy Barbato, Fenton Bailey and Tom Campbell serve as executive producers. Executive producing for VH1 are Susan Levison, Jill Holmes, Kristen Kelly and Fernando Mills.
"LEANN & EDDIE" PREMIERES THURSDAY, JULY 17 AT 10:30PM*
Inside the sanctity of their world, LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian are a typical normal modern family - a married couple, who both have careers and are also learning how to navigate the co-parenting of Eddie's two sons. But life outside the home for them is very different because they live in a fishbowl where the paparazzi stalk them, the tabloids report on any detail and the public gets only part of the real story. With "LeAnn & Eddie," they look forward to sharing a bit of their world and poke fun at what it's like to be a high-profile couple with more than a little misinformation out there about them.
"LeAnn & Eddie" will be executive produced by Scott and Deirdre Gurney for Gurney Productions (Duck Dynasty). LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian will also serve as executive producers for Country Cuban Productions, Inc. Also serving as executive producers will be John Ferriter for Octagon Entertainment and Scotty Abrams for Maniac Filmworks and Music. Executive producing for VH1 will be Susan Levison, Jill Holmes, Kristen Kelly and Fernando Mills.
