THE WEIGHT IS OVER

AMERICA LOVES A COMEBACK, AND MAMA JUNE IS ABOUT TO GIVE US ONE WE WILL NEVER FORGET!

WE TV'S NEW DOCU-DRAMEDY, "MAMA JUNE: FROM NOT TO HOT," PREMIERES on FEBRUARY 24 at 10:00 P.M. ET/PT

NEW YORK, JANUARY 26, 2017 - She's baaaack! Beginning Friday, February 24th at 10:00 pm ET/PT, WE tv invites viewers to join June Shannon, aka "Mama June," on her journey through a life-changing transformation, a physical and emotional metamorphosis that will leave one of America's most recognizable personalities virtually unrecognizable. Over the course of seven one-hour episodes, viewers will follow Mama June as she embarks on a quest of self-discovery that will redefine who she is as a woman, mother, lover and celebrity. Throughout the transformative journey Mama June will find much needed support - and a little tough love-- from daughters, Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Shannon and Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon, as well as other close family and friends.

Season one intimately documents Mama June's entire journey, from the moment she learns that her Ex (Sugar Bear) is getting hitched, right up to her shocking reveal in front of the universe. During this extraordinary process, she will undergo not only a series of extensive plastic surgeries, but also intensive workouts with an unlikely trainer, Kenya Crooks, who forces her to change her entire way of thinking. June will battle self-doubt, ongoing temptation to cheat, and a string of hilariously disastrous dates to become the woman she has always wanted to be.

"WE tv is the home of authentic personalities, and no one is more authentic and fun to watch than Mama June. The addition of 'Mama June: From Not to Hot' along with franchise series 'Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars,' solidifies Friday nights on WE tv as the destination for can't-miss television," said Marc Juris, president, WE tv. "We are pleased to show viewers a new side of Mama June as she transforms her body, and her life, while still maintaining her signature sense of humor. We are rooting for her as she goes on her amazing journey and we know the audience will too."

In the first episode, titled, "Thin-Tervension," June learns that her Ex, Sugar Bear, is planning to tie the knot, and so begins her "revenge" game plan which includes dieting and diving back into the dating world. But when her weekend warrior bravado fades, and her dating life takes a heartbreaking wrong turn, she considers taking more drastic steps.

Meet the cast (if you haven't met them already!):

Mama June

After two successful seasons of "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo" and a failed attempt at saving her relationship on "Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars," full-figured mother of four 'Mama' June Shannon is buckling down to get her weight on track. June has always felt she was 'beautimous,' but now that she's back on the market - and facing health issues - it is time to get her priorities straight. She is ready for a new life, a new body, and a new love!

Alana/Honey Boo Boo

Last seen by the world as the high-energy, sugar-loving, chubby pageant girl, 'Honey Boo Boo' has grown into a still hysterical pre-teen facing some nutritional challenges of her own. She will always support her Mama, and hopefully learn a bit about herself in the process!

Lauryn/Pumpkin

At the ripe old age of 17, Honey Boo Boo's big sister is facing weight-related health issues herself. She is always encouraging Mama June to find a new man... and is almost old enough to be her wingman!

Big Mike

June's lifelong friend, Mike has an intense dislike for Sugar Bear and isn't afraid to say it. In fact, Mike thinks her taste in men sucks, and he would like for her to find a good man - especially so he can retire as the family handyman!

Doe Doe

June's loving but judgmental older sister Doe Doe is never satisfied with June's choices. She is wary of the medical dangers of plastic surgery and encourages June to think before acting impulsively.

Amber

June's niece Amber was raised more like a sister, and she has always been seen as the "perfect one." She brings a dose of normality to this crazy clan, and buys June a sexy red dress - 10 sizes too small - for inspiration.

Sugar Bear

After a turbulent relationship and breakup with June, Sugar Bear has started a new life with his very new fiancé, Jennifer. Sugar Bear wants his daughter Alana to be the flower girl at his wedding, and he wants June to be there too - much to the dismay of his fiancé.

Jennifer

Jennifer is about to be the new Mrs. Sugar Bear! She and June do not like each other in the slightest, but neither woman will admit it's all due to jealousy. Jennifer tries to sabotage June's diet and turn Alana against her.

Kenya Crooks

Born and raised in Seneca, SC, this drill sergeant-style trainer is a no-nonsense fitness and nutrition guru who will have his work cut out for him when it comes to Mama June. He has trained the Braxton family, Ray Leonard Jr. (son of Sugar Ray Leonard), former Pittsburgh Steeler Pro Bowler Levon Kirkland, and many more. Two larger-than-life personalities are about to collide!
