It appears A&E loves famous siblings. It’s swapping out burgers for beer.

With the success of Wahlburgers starring Donnie and Mark Wahlberg, which was recently renewed for a second season, the network announced it’s ordered a new reality series starring Nick and Drew Lachey. The 98 Degrees singers will star in Lachey’s Bar. It will chronicle their dream of opening a bar in Cincinnati. The 10 episode series is in production now and scheduled to air sometime in 2015.

“Despite their lack of knowledge about running a business, these determined brothers are ready to roll up their sleeves and learn the ins and outs of running a place where everybody knows your name,” said A&E in a press release. “Unfortunately, drinking experience doesn’t necessarily translate into drink-making experience… but they’re ready to learn.”

Do you think A&E has another hit on its hands? What famous brothers do you think the network will recruit next? Sound off below.

Watch Singles Try Naked Dating For New VH1 Show

Sex sells and that’s what VH1 is banking on. The network ventures into nude programming for its new dating show, appropriately titled Dating Naked.

Each episode will feature one man and one woman go on adventurous and unique dates with two different suitors (naked of course). At the end of the episode, the two romance seekers decide to either move forward with their new love match or not.

Obviously not being HBO, all the naughty bits will be blurred. The Amy Paffrath-hosted show premieres Thursday, July 17 on VH1. Check out the extended slightly NSFW trailer below.

OWN Postpones Michael Sam Docu-Series

In: Donovan, Totally GAY!, TV Shows
michael-sam-reality-series

Just days after OWN announced a docu-series about Michael Sam, the network has decided to postpone the project. It would’ve chronicled Sam’s attempt to make the St. Louis Rams final roster. Emmy-nominated filmmaker Amy Rice who also filmed the Lindsay Lohan reality series was on board to produce the show alongside Craig Piligian.

The official word from the network as to why it’s temporarily shelved is to allow Sam to focus on football. That certainly makes sense. Many speculated a media circus would follow the first openly-gay player in the league and this would’ve definitely added fuel to that fire.

“After careful consideration and discussion with the St. Louis Rams, The Untitled Michael Sam Project has been postponed, allowing Michael the best opportunity to achieve his dream of making the team. OWN is about elevating and empowering people to achieve their best. It’s clear that we, along with the world, recognize the important opportunity that Michael now has in this moment. We will continue to support him in his journey to earn a spot playing for the Rams.” – OWN President Erik Logan

As wonderful as the official statement release is, I’m thinking OWN was forced by the league to stop production. NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy says OWN had no agreement to use footage from the league adding, “We learned of this in the days after the draft.” I’m also thinking the Rams’ administration wasn’t enthusiastic as well about the show. Especially if Michael doesn’t make the cut.

tyra-banks-carmen-carrera-transamerica

Tyra Banks has been a long-time supporter of transgenders. She’s featured a couple on America’s Next Top Model. For her latest project, she’s teaming up with RuPaul’s Drag Race standout Carmen Carrera for a new ground-breaking series for VH1.

TransAmerica will follow a group of Chicago women navigating friendship, careers and dating, all united by the fact that they are transgender. Carrera will relocate from New Jersey for the series to serve as a role model for the cast.

“Being a woman means everything to me,” Carrera said. “Before my transition I felt trapped, and now I’ve been set free. Carmen has arrived and I can’t wait to share my story.”

The eight-episode docu-series is slated to air either late 2014 or early 2015. Banks will executive produce alongside Gay Rosenthal (Behind the Music, Push Girls, Little People, Big World). Check out more details about the show and cast below.

New FOX Reality Dating Show With ‘Prince Harry’

In: Donovan, TV Shows
i-wanna-marry-harry-reality-show

HAHAHAHA!!! I’m already dying of laughter. When it comes to producing trashy reality shows, FOX is pretty up there. The network has given us such gems as Paradise Hotel, Temptation Island, The Swan, More To Love and Joe Millionaire. In fact, their latest offering is in the vein of the latter. Once again, love is in the air.

I Wanna Marry Harry features 12 single American women searching for Prince Charming. Enter Prince Harry. Correction, a lookalike. Did you actually think the real Prince Harry would sign up for this? I will say though, the stand-in is a pretty good reasonable facsimile.

Matthew Hicks is an average English bloke who’s given the royal makeover. Will he be able to convince them he’s regal? And if he does, will they fall for the crown, or fall in love with the real him? Just like The Bachelor, each episode features faux Harry taking them on romantic dates worthy of a princess. Check him out below.

“He loves [Robin] more than me,” younger brother Carter says in the show’s trailer. “Why? Because he makes him more money.” LOL. Consider me sold!!! I’m already hooked. The saucy title isn’t half bad either.

Unusually Thicke is a new 14-episode reality series premiering on TVGN on April 16. It follows the adventures of Growing Pains star Alan Thicke, his much younger third wife Tanya and teenage son Carter. “Unusually Thicke combines my two favorite things,” the 67-year-old actor said in a statement. “Family … and laughing at my family.”

I wanted NOT to like it due to my previous impression of Tanya on Celebrity Wife Swap, but I have to say, the charming trailer won me over. Their daily lives seem to be filled with lots of fun and humor.

If you have a thing for stars from yesteryear, Unusually Thicke has a slew of them. Several of Alan’s famous celebrity friends including David Hasselhoff, Bob Saget, John Stamos, Magic Johnson, Wayne Gretzky, Bill Maher and Tom Green make an appearance. Million dollar question is… do Robin and his now separated wife Paula Patton make an appearance? Check out the trailer below.

skin-wars-reality-show

RuPaul is moonlighting from her regular Logo gig and heading over to Game Show Network (GSN) to judge another reality competition. The 53-year-old drag superstar is one of three experts picked to judge Skin Wars. The hour-long competition seeks to find America’s most talented and versatile body painters.

Hosting the competition is Rebecca Romijn. The producers chose well. She’s definitely a wise choice given her experience with body painting. She was first model to ever be body-painted for Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit issue and who can forget her as Mystique in the X-Men movies. Skin Wars which is television’s first body painting competition is slated to premiere in Summer 2014.

alyssa-edwards-beyond-belief

It’s finally here! We’ve heard rumblings about it for months and they have finally given us something. The breakout star of RPDR season 5 Alyssa Edwards has brought us a 10 minute preview of her (hopefully) new show BEYOND BELIEF!

A combination of SYTYCD, Dance Moms & RuPaul’s Drag Race, Beyond Belief follows Justin Johnson (Alyssa Edwards) as she deals with her family, her company and the parents of her students in Texas. Full of humour, drama and of course love, I think Beyond Belief could be good television.

SHOUT OUT to Justin’s mom who gave me my new line “Don’t you cut your eyes at ME boy!”  YEAAAAAAAAS!
