Style Network orders new doc-reality series starring Melanie Brown
By Christopher Rocchio, 05/21/2010
Style Network has announced it has ordered a new docu-reality series starring former Spice Girl and Dancing with the Stars celebrity participant Melanie Brown as she juggles her career with family life.
The tentatively-titled The Mel B Project is currently slated to premiere Labor Day weekend.
"Mel B is confident, hilarious and outrageously entertaining," said Style Network president Salaam Coleman Smith.
"Style is all about transformations and we love that Mel has evolved her image and sought new challenges throughout her career while also taking on the ups, downs and everything in between that come with motherhood and marriage. With her infectious humor and signature 'Girl Power' style, Mel is an outstanding addition to our network and we're thrilled to have her as a new face of Style."
In addition to the former Spice Girl, The Mel B Project will also follow her husband Stephen Belafonte and her 3-year-old daughter Angel and 11-year-old daughter Phoenix -- both from prior relationships.
She was recently tapped by Oxygen to replace Marissa Jaret Winokur as Dance Your Ass Off's host for the reality competition series' second season, which will premiere Monday, June 7 at 11PM ET/PT.
The Mel B Project is being produced by Studio Lambert, with Brown, Belafonte, Eli Holzman, Todd Hurvitz and Stephen Lambert serving as executive producers.
