E! GREENLIGHTS NEW ORIGINAL DOCU SERIES "CHRISTINA MILIAN TURNED UP" (WT) FOLLOWING THE ACTRESS/SINGER AS SHE NAVIGATES MUSIC, RELATIONSHIPS AND MOTHERHOOD PREMIERING ON E! IN Q1 2015
Los Angeles, CA - September 9, 2014 - E! announced the greenlight of "Christina Milian Turned Up" (WT) which will begin airing on E! in Q1. The docu soap follows singer and actress Christina Milian's career, love life, and her relationship with her Cuban-American family: her overprotective mother/manager Carmen, her two feisty and outspoken sisters Danielle and Liz, and her adorable daughter Violet. Cameras will follow her extremely hectic personal and professional life when the series premieres on E! in early 2015.
It's always been non-stop for Christina who has been working as an entertainer since she was a kid, but with some recent events like a newly broken off engagement, her life has become even more complicated. She is an artist under Lil Wayne's Young Money Label and working on another studio album with Wayne, who is currently touring with Drake. With these new professional commitments and as a mom, Christina constantly strives to find the balance she so desperately wants between family and career especially when her days are split between New York, LA and Miami.
Whether this multi-talented artist is lending her musical expertise as the social correspondent on the hit series "The Voice" or a contestant on "Dancing with the Stars," this powerhouse is really making a push to re-brand herself as edgy and modern and turning up her career to the next level.
