TV Guide Network is turning two RelativityREAL pilots into series launching in the first half of 2012 – Hollywood Moms Night in March and Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On in April.

Ellen Rakieten Entertainment and RelativityREAL are the producers behind Hollywood Moms Night, the  five-episode series starring best friends Alison Sweeney (The Biggest Loser, Days of Our Lives) and model/actress Ali Landry. In the series, cameras follow the duo on private exclusive potluck dinners they host with their celeb mom friends. The Hollywood Moms Night special, which aired in November, featured actress Denise Richards, Clean House host Niecy Nash and TV personality LaLa Anthony.

Ellen Rakieten, Tom Forman and Brad Bishop serve as executive producers, as do Alison Sweeney and Ali Landry.

Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On is an eight-episode reality series starring the members of all-girl group Wilson Phillips (pictured), which includes sisters Carnie Wilson and Wendy Wilson and best friend Chynna Phillips. Twenty years after their single “Hold On” was a hit, the three daughters of famous musicians – The Beach Boys and The Mamas & The Papas – have since had to juggle their singing careers, high-profile marriages and raising children, while also dealing with tabloid scandals, family dramas and health issues. The series captures their journey back to the limelight.

RelativityREAL’s Tom Forman, Jay Blumenfield, Tony Marsh and Brad Bishop are executive producers with David Simone and Winston Simone of DSW Entertainment.

Wilson Phillips: Still Holding On will coincide with the release of the group’s new album, “Dedicated.”

“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.
