E! EXPANDS INTO ROMANTIC COMEDY GENRE GREENLIGHTING SIX ORIGINAL SCRIPTED MOVIES FOR 2023 

New Unscripted Projects Executive Produced by Anthony Anderson, Stephen Curry, Joel McHale and Todd Chrisley Round Out Slate Alongside Laverne Cox's Signature Interviews   

"People's Choice Awards" Sets Date for Dec. 6 Airing Across NBC and E!   

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - May 11, 2022 - E! is giving audiences something new to love with the announcement of six new original scripted romantic comedy movies and multiple new series alongside the network's current pop culture-centric programming.

Premiering early next year, E! will put its signature spin on the rom-com genre, with inclusive feel-good stories and characters that are reflective of today's society. Additionally, the network will premiere multiple new series, including "Celebrity Beef," hosted and executive produced by Joel McHale; "Black Pop," executive produced by Stephen Curry, which examines how Black culture has impacted society across music, arts and entertainment; and "Raising a F***ing Star," which follows larger-than-life parents and their budding child stars, who are dancers, actors and models

Additionally, "Love Limo," which is hosted and executive produced by Todd Chrisley, will help singles unlucky-in-love hopefully find the match of their dreams while Anthony Anderson treats his beloved mama on a trip of a lifetime through Europe as hijinks and hilarity ensue in "Anthony Anderson and Mom: European Vacation" (wt).

These newly announced shows join E!'s unscripted slate, which includes "Mathis Family Matters," following Judge Greg Mathis and his family premiering on Juneteenth (Sunday, June 19); a new season of "Celebrity Game Face," hosted and executive produced by Kevin Hart on Tuesday, June 21; and "Growing Up Chrisley," which moves to the network for its upcoming fourth season this summer.

Additionally, following a record-breaking year, the "People's Choice Awards" will once again air across both NBC and E! on Dec. 6. Last year the show's audience improved +105% from 2020 levels thanks to the addition of NBC's telecast - the strongest gain of any awards show for the year.

With the industry's prominent return to in-person live events, the network's signature red carpet franchise, "Live From E!," hosted by Laverne Cox, has seen record-breaking gains across platforms year to-date. "Live From E!: Met Gala" scored the biggest multiplatform viewing in the brand's history, drawing nearly 450 million total engagements. Additionally, Cox's series of celebrity-based interview specials, "If We're Being Honest with Laverne Cox," which spotlights trendsetters, tastemakers and those making an impact in the Hollywood community, premieres later this year.  

All major "Live From E!" events this awards season have posted double-digit linear growth from the prior year, with total awards coverage reaching more than 5.5 million total viewers. The 2022 Oscars was the best-performing carpet event in E! history with more than 320 million total multiplatform engagements, more than tripling 2021 and nearly doubling 2020.

NEW PROGRAMMING COMING TO E!: 

"ANTHONY ANDERSON AND MOM: EUROPEAN VACATION" (WT) - PREMIERES 2023

Multiple Emmy nominee Anthony Anderson owes his mama Doris a lot. She gave up her own dreams of being an actress to raise him. As a token of his appreciation, he's treating his mom to the trip of lifetime - a six-week tour around Europe, to discover some of the continent's wonders and experience a real, cultural vacation. However, spending this amount of quality time will be a real test for their relationship as the pair disagree on just about everything.

From the producers of "Starstruck," "Last Week Tonight with John Oliver," "Breeders" and "Flatbush Misdemeanors," this series delivers chaos, comedy and lots of emotion as they navigate both Europe and their relationship -- all in a heartwarming, fun, and unforgettable mother/son European road trip.

Produced by Avalon with Jamie Isaacs, David Martin, Anthony Anderson, E. Brian Dobbins and Doris Bowman serving as executive producers.

"BLACK POP" (WT) - PREMIERES EARLY 2023 

For the first time ever, a multi-part, archive-rich series that looks at the Black American dream through decades of pop culture. The series will explore how Black Americans shaped our culture through film, television, music and comedy.  

Produced by NBC News Studios and Unanimous Media with Stephen Curry, Erick Peyton, Melissa Haizlip and Reniqua Allen-Lamphere serving as executive producers.  

"CELEBRITY BEEF" (WT) - PREMIERES THIS SUMMER 

Everyone loves a good beef ... especially when celebrities are involved! Joel McHale returns to the network as host of this good old-fashioned beef-squashing cook-off. Each week two celebrities will go head-to-head in a light-hearted face-off, knives in hand and spices on the rack, ready to cook the best dish this side of the Hollywood Hills. Joel acts as prosecutor, judge and jury, ultimately crowning one celeb the winner of the cook-off as well as helping the celebrities squash their beef once and for all.  

Produced by the Content Group with Joel McHale, Rebecca Hertz, Steven Michaels, Jodi Flynn, James Macnab, Andi Walker Ochoa and Ariel Brozell serving as executive producers.   

"LOVE LIMO" - PREMIERES 2023 

When it comes to matters of the heart, singles are willing to do almost anything to find love, even if that anything is putting their dating life into the hands of Todd Chrisley. In the new series "Love Limo," hosted and executive produced by Todd Chrisley, he guides one unlucky-in-love single on a whirlwind day of speed dating that will hopefully end in the date night and match of their dreams. Todd believes you can learn everything you need to know about someone else in the first 20 minutes of meeting them and he's about to put that theory to the test.

Produced by Todd Chrisley Productions and All3Media America with Todd Chrisley, Simon Knight and Kelly Lee serving as executive producers.    

"RAISING A F***ING STAR" - PREMIERES SUMMER 2022

From the Emmy Award-winning producers of "RuPaul's Drag Race" and "Million Dollar Listing," Bravo's classic series "Showbiz Moms & Dads" is coming to E! with all-new bigger-than-life parents of budding stars. This time around, the stakes are higher, the kids are more talented, and the stage parents are more competitive than ever before!

Produced by World of Wonder with Randy Barbato, Fenton Bailey, Tom Campbell, Darren Ward, Adam Karpel and Shannon Wilson serving as executive producers.
