U.S. cable channel Style Network has tapped twin sisters Tamera Mowry-Housley and Tia Mowry Hardrict (pictured), stars of 1990s sitcom Sister, Sister, to star in a docu-series called Tia & Tamera.

Launching August 8, the eight-episode series follows on from a one-off special that aired last summer on Style. The series promises to give the viewer a behind-the-scenes look at the sisters, now in their 30s, as one becomes a first-time mother and the other prepares for her wedding.

Tia & Tamera is produced by LA-based indie Good Clean Fun (MTV’s Life of Ryan, E!’s Candy Girls). The executive producers are Jason Carbone, Tia Mowry Hardrict and Tamera Mowry-Housley, along with Style’s Executive Producer Sarah Weidman.

Sister, Sister aired in the U.S. from 1994 to 1995 on ABC, before being cancelled. It was then picked up by The WB, which aired it from 1995 to 1999.
