USA PICKS UP 14 MORE EPISODES OF "MIZ & MRS"
Docuseries Following WWE(R) Power Couple, The Miz and Maryse,
Was USA's Top Reality Series Premiere Since 2011
NEW YORK, NY -- August 14, 2018 - USA Network has ordered additional episodes of freshman series MIZ & MRS, commissioning 14, half-hour episodes to air in 2019. Produced by WWE(R) and Bunim/Murray Productions and starring married WWE Superstars Mike "The Miz" Mizanin and Maryse Mizanin, MIZ & MRS's first six episodes are currently airing Tuesdays at 10/9c. The additional back-half order announcement was made tonight on SMACKDOWN LIVE(R).
Following the humorous and hectic personal lives of the larger-than-life WWE Superstars, MIZ & MRS scored big as USA's top unscripted launch in more than seven years, averaging 1.7M P2+ viewers during the first three premiere episodes.
"One word about the renewal: AWESOME!," said The Miz.
"Thanks to all of the WWE fans out there who wanted a window to our crazy lives," added Maryse. "Be careful what you wish for!"
MIZ & MRS gives fans an unfiltered look at the power couple's lives as they adapt to becoming first-time parents while juggling their fast-paced lifestyle, a cross-country move from Los Angeles to Austin, and the intense demands of their WWE schedule. From baby first-aid classes and pregnancy photo shoots to big showdowns at WrestleMania(R), MIZ & MRS proves that the outrageous in-ring personalities of The Miz and Maryse are no act.
Produced by WWE and Bunim/Murray Productions, MIZ & MRS complements USA's WWE programming, which includes five hours of live programming each week, 52 weeks a year, with MONDAY NIGHT RAW(R) and SMACKDOWN LIVE. Gil Goldschein, Farnaz Farjam-Chazan and Russell Jay serve as executive producers for Bunim/Murray Productions, and Kevin Dunn serves as executive producer for WWE. The Miz and Maryse are also executive producers.
