“Both ‘Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars’ and ‘Growing Up Hip Hop’ are standout series in their own right,” says Marc Juris, president of WE tv. “
WE tv has announced the expansion of two of the network’s most successful franchises – “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars” and “Growing Up Hip Hop” – through new spinoff series; “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Family Edition” and “Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta.”
“Both ‘Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars’ and ‘Growing Up Hip Hop’ are standout series in their own right and have become important franchises for WE tv, helping to solidify the network as a destination for viewers on Thursdays and Fridays who seek out great stories and big personalities,” said Marc Juris, president of WE tv. “With more stories to tell and more fascinating personalities to follow, the time was right to expand each of these series through compelling spinoffs that focus on the complicated and wholly relatable dynamic of families.”
“Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars Family Edition” premieres on Friday, April 28 at 9:00 P.M. ET/PT and features a cast of famous and famously dysfunctional families dealing with notorious and well-publicized rifts, who will undergo intense counseling and decide, with the help of experienced therapists Dr. Ish Major and Dr. Venus Nicolino.
“Growing Up Hip Hop Atlanta,” premiering later this year, chronicles the perks and perils of being born into Hip Hop royalty in the city that the New York Times called “Hip Hop’s center of gravity.” The rich history of the Atlanta hip hop scene has fostered a unique sense of local pride and closeness among the artists that resembles a family. But like any family, Atlanta’s next generation of hip hop stars do not always get along. Growing up together in the shadow of their legendary parents has established tight bonds and bitter rivalries, as everybody fights for their chance to push their way into the spotlight.
