CMT announced the development of Ty Murray's Celebrity Bull Riding Challenge, a new Dancing with the Stars and Skating with Celebrities-like reality series that will follow eight stars as they try their hand at bull riding.

The six-episode series is scheduled to premiere in August and will be hosted by Murray, a seven-time All-Around World Champion and accomplished rodeo athlete.  Celebrity participants for the series -- which will include country music artists -- have yet to be announced.

Ty Murray's Celebrity Bull Riding Challenge is produced by Scott Messick at Got Sports Productions.

In addition to Ty Murray's Celebrity Bull Riding Challenge, CMT announced the development of several new series and specials: CMT Diary, Opening Act, America's Top Cowboy, Prankville, Bandits vs. Smokies, and Born Country; as well as the return of Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team for a second season, Trick My Truck for a third season and Country Fried Home Videos for a third season.
