U.S. cable network WE tv has renewed Bridezillas (pictured) for a 10th season and commissioned a spin-off series called Marriage Bootcamp: Bridezillas.

The programs will air during the female-skewing net’s summer schedule, along with a sixth season of celebrity wedding planner David Tutera’s reality series.

Produced by Thinkfactory Media in cooperation with Bridezillas company September Films, Marriage Bootcamp (nine x 60-minutes) puts five troubled couples through an “extreme” two-week marriage bootcamp to work out their issues.

The bootcamp is run by husband and wife counseling team Jim and Elizabeth Carroll, and counselors Dana Hamman and David Bishop, who use a series of strategic exercises to uncover the problems causing strife within the marriages. the exec producers for Thinkfactory Media on the series are Adam Freeman, Adam Reed, Moriah Muse and Leslie Greif.

Meanwhile, execs at WE tv are promising the 10th anniversary season of Bridezillas (22 x one-60-minutes) will feature more bridal party wars, smashed cakes and meltdowns than ever before. Exec producers on the show are Laura Halperin and David Green for September Films, while the network exec overseeing both shows is Suzanne Murch.

Elsewhere, My Fair Wedding with David Tutera has been slightly reworked for its sixth season. Set to air under the title David Tutera Unveiled (eight x 60-minutes), it will go behind-the-scenes with the wedding planner and his team as they organize over-the-top theme weddings for demanding clients.

The show is produced by Pilgrim Studios, with Craig Piligian and Melodie Calvert serving as executive producers. Kate Farrell is the executive producer for WE tv.
