WE TV ANNOUNCES PAIR OF ORIGINAL SERIES FOR 2011

NETWORK SIGNS SINGER/SONGWRITER TONI BRAXTON FOR DOCU-SERIES "BRAXTON FAMILY VALUES"

"STATEN ISLAND CAKES" FOLLOWS THE DRAMA AND HUMOR OF A FAMILY RUN BUSINESS WHERE A 21-YEAR-OLD PASTRY CHEF IS THE BOSS

New Series Underscore WE tv's Refreshed Brand Position and New Tagline, Life As WE Know It

NEW YORK, NY - January 4, 2011 - WE tv today announced a pair of original series premiering in 2011 which epitomize the network's refreshed brand position and new tagline, "life as WE know it." Premiering Tuesday, April 12, Braxton Family Values takes a candid look at the relationship between singer/songwriter Toni Braxton, her mom, and four sisters, all aspiring singers themselves. Debuting Tuesday, June 21, Staten Island Cakes is a humorous and heartwarming series that follows Vinny Buzzetta, a 21-year-old, self-made pastry prodigy and sought-after cake maker. Vinny's professional success has come with the help of his loud, outspoken Staten Island family - particularly his mother - as they live and work together.

"WE tv's programming showcases the wild ride of relationships during life's defining moments, whether it's the thrill of getting married, the drama of family chaos or the excitement of a second chance," said Kim Martin, president and general manager, WE tv and Wedding Central. "As women, we share a connection and a sense of community based on similar life experiences and situations. It's that particular point of view that defines �life as WE know it.'"

Added Martin: "At the heart of every WE tv original show is a story that allows a woman to see herself, someone she knows or someone she'd love to know. Whether the shows feature celebrities or real people, viewers can relate to the situations and share in the experience."
