By Christopher Rocchio, 09/10/2008
The Style Network announced it has ordered Running in Heels, a new docu-reality series that will follow the editorial staff of Marie Claire magazine.
"The Style Network and Marie Claire share a common vision for how to entertain and inspire women," said network executive Salaam Coleman Smith.
"Style is thrilled to immerse viewers in the fast-paced, high-gloss world of Marie Claire, and to offer them a dynamic look at the competitive magazine industry and a glimpse into the lives of the women that make it all happen."
According to the etwork, each Running in Heels episode will focus on the "personal story" of different Marie Claire employees -- including editors, writers, interns and photographers -- and offer viewers behind-the-scenes access to the publication's staff as they work on everything from celebrity cover shoots to high-profile Fashion Week events.
"This is the first docu-series in the history of the magazine and we're excited to work with The Style Network to offer unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to Marie Claire and the stylish, smart women who put the magazine together each month," said Marie Claire editor-in-chief Joanna Coles. "There's sure to be lots of drama to interest viewers."
Running in Heels is currently slated to debut in March 2009 and is produced by Left/Right Productions, with Banks Tarver, Ken Druckerman and Ross Breitenbach serving as executive producers.
