U.S. cable net OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network is airing a one-hour special from LMNO Productions, Golden Sisters, following the exploits of three sisters who shot to fame with a series of viral YouTube videos.

The two half-hour episodes star Mary Bartnicki, who is in her eighties, and her younger twin sisters Josie and Teresa. Their YouTube channel sees the trio discuss a range of topics including the movie Magic Mike and “friends with benefits,” as well as their thoughts on 50 Shades of Grey, and words such as “Totes McGoats” and “YOLO.”

Golden Sisters will debut on December 16 at 10 p.m. EST/PST on OWN, and is billed as a real life comedy, with storylines including Mary creating an online dating profile, and the sisters preparing for the apocalypse.

Also on the way from LMNO is Final Cut for Investigation Discovery. Premiering on December 5 at 9 p.m. EST/PST, the six-part series tells the stories of aspiring stars’ careers ending with murder in Los Angeles. Investigative journalist Pat LaLama provides commentary for the cases, which include the murders of The Cosby Show’s Merlin Santana, low-budget horror movie director Al Adamson, and more.

“This new series goes beyond Hollywood’s shiny boulevards to uncover the hidden alleyways where predators prey on young dreamers, while investigative journalist, Pat LaLama, takes our viewers along for the dark ride to see just how much the price of fame can really cost,” said Henry Schleiff, general manager for Investigation Discovery, via a statement.
