"Hollywood Moms Night" and "Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On" Set to Premiere as Weekly Series

LOS ANGELES (December 19, 2011) - TV Guide Network, announced today that it will be bringing viewers more original programming in 2012 with two new series. "Hollywood Moms Night" and "Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On," both of which premiered on TV Guide Network in November as television specials, will be produced into weekly series. Both shows will air on the Network in the first half of 2012: "Hollywood Moms Night" is scheduled to air in March; and "Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On" is scheduled to air in April which will coincide with the release of their new album, "Dedicated," by Sony Masterworks.

"We are pleased to expand our relationships with two of the most celebrated reality producers and deliver series that bring viewers closer to Hollywood life and celebrities," said Allen Shapiro, Chairman of TV Guide Network.

Following are show descriptions for TV Guide Network's 2012 original series:

"Hollywood Moms Night" is a five-episode series that stars best friends Alison Sweeney ("Days of our Lives," "The Biggest Loser," author of The Mommy Diet) and Ali Landry (former Miss USA, model, actress, famed Doritos commercial star). For the first time ever, the ladies allow cameras into their exclusive, private potluck dinners they have been hosting for years for their famous mom friends. Join "The Alis" as they get together with their celebrity mom friends for an evening filled with surprises, scoop, racy conversation and uncensored girl talk....nothing is off limits! The "Hollywood Moms Night" special, which aired in November, featured special guests Denise Richards ("Blue Mountain State"), Niecy Nash ("Clean House") and LaLa Anthony ("LaLa's Full Court Life"). "Hollywood Moms Night" is being produced by Ellen Rakieten Entertainment and RelativityREAL with Ellen Rakieten, Tom Forman and Brad Bishop serving as executive producers. Alison Sweeney and Ali Landry also serve as executive producers.

"Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On" is an eight-episode original reality series that follows one of the most successful all-girl groups in music history which includes sisters Carnie Wilson and Wendy Wilson and best friend Chynna Phillips. It's been 20 years since their anthem "Hold On" ruled the airways, but now Wilson Phillips is staging a comeback. Daughters of famous musicians - The Beach Boys and The Mamas & The Papas - this Grammy(R)-nominated singing sensation rose to fame with their California looks and unique harmonies, but also garnered headlines with their personal lives. Since then, the women have had to juggle their singing careers, high-profile marriages and raising children while at the same time dealing with tabloid scandals, family dramas and health issues. Their journey back to fame will be captured in this series. "Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On" is being produced by RelativityREAL with Tom Forman, Jay Blumenfield, Tony Marsh and Brad Bishop serving as executive producers. David Simone and Winston Simone of DSW Entertainment also will serve as executive producers.
