By Christopher Rocchio, 01/29/2010
VH1 announced it has ordered Transform Me, a new reality series starring three transgender women giving makeovers, and has also acquired Peak Season: Vancouver, a docu-reality series from MTV Canada that takes place in the same city as the upcoming 2010 Winter Olympics.
Transform Me will premiere on Monday, March 15 and follow Jamie Clayton, Nina Poon, and former I Want to Work for Diddy first-season contestant Laverne Cox as they travel across the country in their "fashion ambulance" and help different women in need of a makeover.
While the show's subjects expect to be made over "in typical reality show fashion" they are surprised to instead learn the three transgender women will give them an "expert transformation," according to VH1.
The eight-episode series is being produced by Left/Right Inc..
Peak Season: Vancouver will premiere on Sunday, February 14 at 11:30PM ET/PT and document the lives of a group of young adults living in Vancouver/Whistler, British Columbia.
VH1 acquired the 10-episode series from MTV Canada and it is similar to the network's Secrets of Aspen reality series, which premiered earlier this month and follows six single women as they attempt to find love in the Colorado ski town.
Peak Season: Vancouver was executive produced by Evan Prager and Jesse Ignjatovic for Den of Thieves.
