U.S. net TLC has picked up 12 Yard Productions’ reality series about five American girls that head to the UK to establish the country’s first sorority, Sigma Gamma.

Sorority Girls, which will air for eight weeks beginning on January 31, is set in Leeds and follows the women as they recruit candidates for one of five spots in the exclusive club and mix American and English cultural traditions.

The women are monitored 24/7 as they endure various pledging rituals such as rush week, door chants, secret handshakes and preference night rituals.

The series first aired on digital network E4 in the UK last year and was ordered by entertainment commissioning editor David Williams. The executive producers were Andy Culpin, Michael Mannes and Matt Walton.
