E! announced today four new unscripted series that further build the network’s dynamic slate of fan favorite, pop culture programming. The new docu-series include: “Cosmo Life” (working title), a behind-the-scenes look at the lives of young staffers at the iconic women’s brand; “The Abbey Diaries” (working title), which chronicles the lives of bartenders, servers and management at Hollywood’s most iconic gay bar; “Famously Married” (working title), a look at the glamorous lifestyles of a group of young women and their wealthy older husbands living in Los Angeles; and “WAGS: Miami,” a spin-off of hit franchise “WAGS” (Wives And Girlfriends Of Sports Stars) set against the sunny, sexy backdrop of South Florida.
This new show explores the women and relationships behind the “Hollywood trophy wife” label, following a group of young women who recently married or are currently planning to marry wealthy and successful older men. These women navigate the complications that come with being a second wife, including their husbands’ exes and children, as well as their entrance into elite LA society. The series is produced by Studio Lambert and All3Media America with Stephen Lambert, Greg Lipstone, Greg Goldman, and Sara Quick serving as exec producers.
Bouncing off of E!’s hit franchise “WAGS” (Wives And Girlfriends Of Sports Stars), this new spin-off documents the lavish lifestyles and real-life drama of eight Miami WAGS, giving viewers a voyeuristic peek inside the exclusive world of superstar athletes through the perspective of the women who stand by their side. The WAGS of Miami live life unapologetically, and are bound together by a strict hierarchy of unspoken rules with no boundaries, no filters and the veritable candy shop of Miami as their playground. These ambitious, strong women are spicing things up and bringing the heat as they work to make their own dreams a reality, while playing the most competitive game of all: getting and keeping that pro-athlete man. “WAGS: Miami” hails from Machete Productions with Amber Mazzola and Lori Gordon serving as exec producers.
Set in one of the most glamorous epicenters of pop culture, Cosmopolitan Magazine, this new series follows the work-hard, play-hard lifestyles of a group of young tastemakers at the cutting edge of what’s hot in music, fashion, style, beauty, sex and celebrities, often opening up their own lives to millions of readers around the globe. These up-and-comers at the world’s best-selling women’s magazine juggle the temptations of New York’s hottest celebrity parties and VIP nightlife with the demands of their passionate and formidable Editor-in-Chief Joanna Coles. Hailing from Bunim/Murray Productions, exec producers are Gil Goldschein, Jeff Jenkins and Rob Bagshaw, plus Coles and Holly Whidden from Cosmo Magazine.
