History programming highlights include Raising the Titanic, a two-hour special that commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Titanic’s voyage.The Lone Wolf Documentary Group program, set to air on History in 2012, shows never-before-seen evidence regarding how exactly the “unsinkable” ship sunk.

From the Lifetime Television catalog, A+E Networks will represent Dance Moms, a 12-part, one-hour series all about the competitive dance world and the ultra-competitive mothers within that scene. The series is produced by Collins Avenue Entertainment.
