Bridal parties gone awry, Olivia Newton-John’s daughter and a post-grad’s life are topics for Oxygen Media’s upcoming development slate.

The new programming will capture women transitioning through the most important moments of their lives.  Maids of Drama (w/t) looks at the jealousies that can exist among wedding parties, while My Post Grad Life (w/t) chronicles the first year after college graduation. The third program, Lost Angels (w/t) is a docu-series that follows Chloe Lattanzi, daughter of actress and singer Olivia Newton-John.

Lost Angels is produced by FremantleMedia North America, Inc, while Maids of Drama and My Post Grad Life are both from Half Yard Productions.

The three titles join previously announced tattoo competition reality series Best Ink, from Bunim-Murray Productions, and Love Scouts, from T Group Productions, which follows Olivia “Liv” Alexander and her team as they connect singles in need of dating help.

Returning for a second season is the hair design competition show, 3 Ball Productions’ Hair Battle Spectacular with new host Eva Marcille (America’s Next Top Model). This summer Bachelorette Party: Las Vegas will follow lucky brides-to-be on a memorable all-access, V.I.P. fantasy weekend with their “besties.”

Oxygen has revealed premiere dates for anticipated series The World According to Paris, the docu-series from A. Smith & Co. featuring Paris Hilton which premieres on June 1. The Glee Project from Ryan Murphy Television and Embassy Row, which searches for a singer to appear on Glee, will make its debut on June 12. Also in the spring/summer schedule is the premiere of Tori and Dean: sTORIbook Weddings on April 6 and All About Aubrey.

Amy Introcaso-Davis, SVP, original programming and development, said, “We develop for young women who are going through various life stages who can escape with unique concepts that speak directly to what she and her girlfriends are experiencing in their own lives.”
