UPI News Service, 01/26/2017
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo's cast is returning in a new reality series called Mama June: From Not to Hot.
The seven-episode show is to debut Feb. 24 on WE.
"WE tv is the home of authentic personalities, and no one is more authentic and fun to watch than Mama June. The addition of 'Mama June: From Not to Hot' along with franchise series 'Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars,' solidifies Friday nights on WE tv as the destination for can't-miss television," Marc Juris, president of WE tv, said in a statement Thursday.
"We are pleased to show viewers a new side of Mama June as she transforms her body, and her life, while still maintaining her signature sense of humor. We are rooting for her as she goes on her amazing journey and we know the audience will, too."
The cast of the show also includes Shannon's daughters Alana "Honey Boo Boo" Shannon and Lauryn "Pumpkin" Shannon.
"Season 1 intimately documents Mama June's entire journey, from the moment she learns that her ex [Mike 'Sugar Bear' Thompson] is getting hitched, right up to her shocking reveal in front of the universe," a press release teased.
"During this extraordinary process, she will undergo not only a series of extensive plastic surgeries, but also intensive workouts with an unlikely trainer, Kenya Crooks, who forces her to change her entire way of thinking. June will battle self-doubt, ongoing temptation to cheat, and a string of hilariously disastrous dates to become the woman she has always wanted to be."
