By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 04/13/2011
Ali Fedotowsky fans may soon get to see her on a weekly basis once again.
The Style Network has announced it has 10 new potential series in development for broadcast in 2011, including a lifestyle series that would be co-hosted by the former The Bachelorette star and The Bachelor bachelorette.
The new half-hour lifestyle weekly series would also feature several other faces already familiar to reality TV viewers, while the remaining nine shows focus on fitness, fashion and family.
In addition to Fedotowsky, the as-of-yet untitled series would also be co-hosted by former first-season America's Next Top Model winner Adrianne Curry, former Dancing with the Stars participant and Glam God with Vivica A. Fox host Vivica A. Fox, and sixth-season Project Runway contestant Nick Verreos and feature "in-studio guests, product demos, makeover segments, and field segments," according to the network.
After getting engaged on The Bachelorette last summer, Fedotowsky and fiance Roberto Martinez moved to San Diego, where she began working as an entertainment reporter for the local Fox affiliate last fall.
In addition to the untitled lifestyle series, The Style Network also announced nine other series that are in development: The Amandas, Are You Dressed?, Birth Moms, The Look For Less, Makeover Madness, Maureen Hancock's Ghost Town, Miss Fit, The Riveras, and Single with 7.
The Amandas will follow detail-oriented organization specialist Amanda LeBlanc making over homes with a team of similar experts.
Are You Dressed? will feature on-the-spot trivia games where the show's host will greet clothing store shoppers upon entering their dressing rooms and ask questions regarding fashion, celebrities, and pop culture, allowing the contestants to win cash and prizes if they answer correctly.
Birth Moms will chronicle the business and mothers of Utah's Adoption Center of Choice, a home where expectant mothers complete their pregnancies before giving up their babies for adoption.
The Look For Less will be a new revival of the former Style Network makeover series. However unlike the original -- which debuted in 2002 -- the new version will be driven by the Internet, including social media and YouTube.
Hosted by So You Think You Can Dance host Cat Deeley, Makeover Madness will feature a team of hair, beauty and fashion experts attempting to break world records with the most makeovers in one sitting.
Maureen Hancock's Ghost Town will star Maureen Hancock -- who claims she can communicate with the dead and regularly stops strangers on the street to give them impromptu readings -- and her family business, which also includes her "quirky" sisters and "apprentice" nieces.
Miss Fit will feature Miss Fit Club, Boston's women-only fitness club run by former beauty queen Katie Boyd, who pushes her clientele of pageant hopefuls and suburban moms to reach their fitness goals.
The Riveras will star the Riveras, a Puerto Rican family who own two neighborhood dance studios in Queens, NY, and follow sisters Jorday, Daziann and Tiffany as they attempt to balance their family's goals while also trying to pursue their individual passions.
Single with 7 will star 29-year-old Yesi Ortiz, an afternoon DJ at an LA radio station and "mom," who gained legal custody of her seven nieces and nephews after they were put into foster care following her sister's imprisonment.
In addition, the network also announced it has ordered Big Rich Texas, a reality series which will follow the mothers and daughters of an elite country club in Texas, and Glam Fairy, a spinoff of the network's Jerseylicious reality series which will feature New Jersey makeup artist Alexa Prisco undertaking makeovers.
