The N has announced The N's Student Body, a new reality competition series hosted by Laila Ali that will follow a group of teens attempting to whip their lives into shape, will premiere Friday, July 11 at 10PM ET/PT.
Following its debut, the eight-episode series will move to its regular Sundays at 8PM ET/PT time period beginning July 13.
The N's Student Body will bring together 12 students from rival high schools in Decatur, IL, with the ultimate goal being to achieve a healthier lifestyle through diet, exercise, volunteer work and academics.
The winning student will receive $25,000 to be used for new programs and facilities at his or her school.
"The N's Student Body is a reality TV series with a positive point-of-view, 'reality with morality' we like to say," said The N executive Sarah Tomassi Lindman. "Our viewers will find themselves cheering on these remarkable teens as they strive to get into shape and change their lives."
The N's Student Body is one of a few places viewers can catch Ali this summer.
The N's Student Body is produced by Reveille and is executive produced by The N along with Reveille's Mark Koops, Dave Broome of 25/7 Productions and NBC Entertainment and NBC Universal Media Studios co-chairman Ben Silverman.
The N's Student Body's July 11 premiere will air immediately after the network's debut of Queen Bees, another new reality series that will take seven self-centered girls who have been nominated by family members and friends in the hopes that they will better themselves from the inside out. The girl that changes the most will win $25,000.
