"FROM NOT TO HOT" RENEWED FOR A SECOND SEASON, MAMA JUNE'S EPIC TRANSFORMATION TO CONTINUE ON WE TV

After The Weight Loss, Her Story Is Just Beginning

Cable's Number One New Reality Show of 2017 Returns In Early 2018

NEW YORK, NY - August 7, 2017 - WE tv announced today that it has renewed breakout hit series "Mama June: From Not to Hot" for a ten episode second season beginning in early 2018. Season one of "Mama June: From Not to Hot" debuted earlier this year and remains cable's number one new reality show of 2017. The show was among the most popular in WE tv's history, averaging more than 2 million viewers throughout its first season, and achieving steady ratings growth throughout. During its run, the show was consistently Friday night's #1 cable program among adults and women 18-49 and 25-54 and made WE tv the #1 cable network on Friday nights among women 18-49 & 25-54.

"Audiences were totally captivated by the return of June Shannon and family in 'Mama June: From Not to Hot,' which was a huge hit out of the gate and demonstrates how familiar and compelling characters with great stories to tell can still make a big impact," said Marc Juris, president of WE tv. "Though she may have gotten physically smaller, Mama June remains a larger-than-life personality, and her appeal with viewers is stronger than ever. After witnessing her epic transformation, it was absolutely clear that the story has just begun, and we are pleased to be continuing together on this journey."

Season two follows "Mama June" as she tries to navigate life after a whirlwind year and losing hundreds of pounds. She shocks everyone by turning the tables on her daughter Alana (former child pageant queen "Honey Boo Boo") and gets caught up with adult pageant-mania, eager to compete against the beautiful women who snubbed her before her weight loss. Yet it doesn't take long for June to realize that her weight was the least of her problems --as she now faces decisions that could tear her family apart.

"Mama June: From Not to Hot" is produced for WE tv by Thinkfactory Media and executive produced by Adam Freeman, Adam Reed, Moriah Muse, Alex Campbell and Leslie Greif. Executive producers for WE tv are Lauren P. Gellert, Lauren Lazin and David Stefanou.
