TV Land has announced it has ordered Harry Loves Lisa, a new reality series starring Lisa Rinna and her husband Harry Hamlin -- both of whom previously competed on Dancing with the Stars as celebrity participants.
"There is no denying the chemistry of this amazingly beautiful, smart and sexy couple," said TV Land president Larry W. Jones.
"When I met them, I was immediately blown away by their relationship. They are so proud and supportive of each other. It's clear why this relationship works on so many levels. Our audience will love seeing their honesty, humor and often-outrageous antics."
Rinna and Hamlin have been married for more than 11 years, and the new reality series will follow the couple as they juggle their professional lives as actors and entrepreneurs with their personal lives of parenting their two pre-teen daughters.
"We are thrilled to be working with TV Land!" said the couple in a joint statement. "Our show will shine the spotlight on the adventure that is our life and the magic that holds us together."
The six episode series will be executive produced by Jason Carbone and is currently slated to premiere in the fall.
Rinna competed on Dancing with the Stars Winter 2006 second season with professional partner Louis van Amstel, and the pair finished fourth. Hamlin competed during the Fall 2006 third season with professional Ashley DelGrosso, and they were the third couple eliminated.
The couple subsequently played the roles of Roxie Hart and Billy Flynn in a Broadway production of Chicago.
