NickMom's TV line-up for launch will feature the following four series:

PARENTAL DISCRETION WITH STEFANIE WILDER-TAYLOR

Parental Discretion with Stefanie Wilder-Taylor (26 episodes) is a show that blends studio elements, interviews, video commentary, monologues and panel discussions with hidden camera, mom on the street and sketch comedy. Each episode explores a different element of parenting, all through the irreverent and funny eyes of author and comedienne Stefanie Wilder-Taylor (Naptime is the New Happy Hour, Sippy Cups Are Not for Chardonnay). The series is executive produced by Hugh Fink (The Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Saturday Night Live, The Showbiz Show), Jane Lipsitz and Dan Cutforth from Magical Elves (Top Chef, Fashion Star) and Co-Executive Produced by Stefanie Wilder-Taylor and Jim Jones (Mad TV).

MFF: MOM FRIENDS FOREVER

MFF: Mom Friends Forever (20 episodes) is a docu-comedy series that goes inside the worlds of Judi Diamond and Kate Frisina-White--two mom best friends from St. Louis, Mo., who have a lot to say. Between juggling work (at a radio station and grocery store), kids (two each) and relationships (marriage and divorce), they also produce and star in a web show just for moms. Together, they're living their dream of connecting with other parents while laughing along the way. MFF: Mom Friends Forever is executive produced by Coolfire Originals (Welcome to Sweetie Pies).

NICKMOM NIGHT OUT

WHAT WAS CAROL BRADY THINKING?

Here's the story of a lovely lady - who somehow kept six kids, a husband, a housekeeper and a dog in perfect order with nary a complaint. What Was Carol Brady Thinking? (26 episodes) goes inside the mind of one of the most iconic moms of all time through graphic overlays on top of the original The Brady Bunch series, allowing viewers to read Carol Brady's thoughts throughout each episode. This NickMom twist on the classic series is executive produced by Jim Burns (MTV Unplugged) of Top Dog Incorporated.

The series is Executive Produced by Linda Schaffer and Barbara Kanowitz of Hot Air Productions and Andrea Rosen.
