Exclusive: Logo, TV Land, VH1 Confirm Fall Plans
By The Futon Critic Staff (TFC)

LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- It's going to be a busy fall for Viacom siblings Logo, TV Land and VH1.

VH1 will be the busiest of the trio, offering up a half dozen originals in the next few months. It all begins on Sunday, September 19 with the return of "Fantasia For Real," the launch of "Real & Chance: Legend Hunters" and the previously announced "Carmelo and La La."

"Legend Hunters" features "I Love New York" and "Real Chance of Love" alums Ahmad "Real" Givens and Kamal "Chance" Givens as they look into unique creatures from around the world (a la History's "MonsterQuest") while "Carmelo and La La" tracks the nuptials of NBA star Carmelo Anthony and VH1 personality Alani "La La" Vazquez.

Then on Monday, October 11, look for the season premiere of "Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew" alongside the bows of "Bret Michaels: Life As I Know It" and "Football Wives." The former, which previewed on Memorial Day, showcases the Poison frontman-turned-reality star while the latter gives viewers "a behind-the-scenes look at the glamorous life of the better halves of professional football's most elite players."

They'll be joined by the weekday run of "Don't Forget the Lyrics!" beginning Monday, September 20 as well as the return of "Brandy & Ray J: A Family Business" in October (exact date TBA) and "What Chilli Wants" in December (exact date TBA). [UPDATED!] The Mario Lopez-led "First Time Father" is also tentatively targeted for the fall, however no hard date has been announced.

Meanwhile, sister network VH1 Classic will bow the Mark Burnett-produced series "Rock 'N' Roll Fantasy Camp," in which "15 musicians from a variety of backgrounds and cities will go through the transformative process of becoming rock stars," on Saturday, October 16.

As for Logo, the cable channel will offer up its two originals - "The A-List: New York" and "The Arrangement" - on Monday, October 11. "A-List," formerly known as "Kept," follows the privileged lives of New York City's real gay homemakers and socialites, while "Arrangement" is a competition series involving floral designers.

And finally on TV Land, look out for "Harry Loves Lisa" - a docusoap featuring Harry Hamlin and Lisa Rinna - on Wednesday, October 6 at 10:00/9:00c.

All of the aforementioned dates were confirmed by their respective spokespersons to the site exclusively.
