"We are extremely happy to have assembled this compelling line-up of new programming for our viewers," said Salaam Coleman Smith, President, The Style Network.

Among the series currently in development at Style are (all titles are tentative and subject to change prior to broadcast):

Birth Moms

This is an intimate and emotional docu-series set inside Orem, Utah's Adoption Center of Choice, a residential home where expectant mothers complete their pregnancies before giving up their babies for adoption. Having completed their 1,000th adoption in 2009, The Adoption Center provides expectant mothers with a safe and loving haven, a vast network of support, and the opportunity to change their lives for the better as they transition through this complicated and often scary time.

The Amandas

Birmingham, Alabama's Amanda LeBlanc is obsessed - with organizing, sanitizing and modernizing. In this formatted home makeover show, the self-proclaimed control freak is a detail-focused organizing specialist whose Southern charm masks a killer desire to get the job done right ... and right now. Accompanied by a team of like-minded "Amandas," Ms. LeBlanc takes no prisoners once she has honed in on her target, and you best just get out of the way when she enters your home on her mission.

Single With 7

This powerful and inspiring reality family drama centers around 29 year-old Yesi Ortiz, an afternoon DJ at L.A.'s Power 106 FM radio. Yesi is much more than a DJ however; she is also "mom" to the seven nieces and nephews who were put into foster care when her sister was sent to prison. One by one, Yesi has gained legal custody of her family and is determined to keep them together at any cost, while also pursuing her own career goals and personal aspirations.

Lifestyle Weekly Series

Are You Dressed?

If answered correctly, they earn cash and all kinds of great prizes.

Miss Fit

The Riveras
