Style Media, upping its original programming by 22 percent, has greenlit three series and is bringing back two.

Joining a line-up that includes the previously announced Styled to Rock, which has the distinction of being Style’s first competition series and having Rihanna as an executive producer, is Glam Squad (w/t), a competition series developed with Academy Award-winning actor Charlize Theron.

The series is produced by Bunim Murray Productions in conjunction with Charlize Theron’s Denver & Delilah Films, and explores the world of make-up and hair squads. Each episode will follow three beauty teams as they try for the same high-stake jobs, including music videos, fashion magazine photo shoots, and red carpet events.

Style has greenlit a reboot of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous, from RelativityREAL, Television 360 and Rysher Entertainment. Inspired by the original Robin Leach-hosted series, this new version will take viewers to assorted glamorous locations and hotspots around the world.

Atlas Media has been given the go-ahead on Luxe Life Miami (w/t), a docuseries following Katrina Campins, former Apprentice contestant and high-end real estate agent in Miami. The series will also feature her ex-husband, mother and younger sister.

Also on tap is Pop Style (w/t), produced by Embassy Row, a live weekly topical fashion series hosted by make-up artist and host of the network’s How Do I Look?, Jeannie Mai, and model and TV presenter, Louise Roe.

For returning series, Comcast Entertainment Studios and You & I Productions’ Giuliana & Bill and Good Clean Fun’s Tia & Tamera (pictured above) are set to come back in the summer.

“Since fourth quarter, we have seen a huge surge in advertiser support, and we hope to continue this incredible trend with our incredible new programming slate which aims to hyper-serve our passionate audience in the fashion and stylish living space,” said Salaam Coleman Smith, president of Style Media.
