U.S. net WE tv has lifted the lid on three new unscripted series, including Pregnant & Dating, which sees five single women “making the choice to become moms and taking control of their love lives at the same time.”

The 8 x 60-minutes series is produced by GRB Entertainment and promises to spotlight five women “challenging what used to be considered taboo by having a child on their own while they continue to date and find Mr. Right,” according to the network.

It will air Saturday nights, starting this summer. The executive producers for WE tv are Lauren Gellert and Annabelle McDonald, while the execs for GRB are Gary R. Benz, Michael Branton and Tracy Mazuer.

Also new for the network is The Ruckers: Southern Royals (6 x 60-minutes), from Bunim/Murray Productions. The show follows three African American sisters who are the heirs to one of the oldest and most prominent southern families in the Carolinas.

The reality show is executive produced by Jonathan Murray, Gil Goldschein, Steven Greener, Datari Turner, Gordon Bijelnoic, Jeff Jenkins and Melissa Bidwell , Gellert and McDonald exec producing for the network.

Finally, the network has confirmed an 8 x 60-minutes series order and Friday night fall slot for The Lylas, the series about the sisters of pop star Bruno Mars, which was previously in development, as reported in February.

The show will see sisters Tiara, Tahiti and Presley move from their home in Hawaii to join big sister Jaime in LA, in a bid to crack the music industry.

The series is made by Asylum Entertainment and exec produced by Steve Michaels, Jonathan Koch, David Garner, Ben Ricciardi and Glenn Carrano.  The executive producers for WE tv are Gellert and Suzanne Murch.

In a statement, WE tv president and general manager Kim Martin said: “As viewing patterns continue to evolve, WE tv is focused on creating a destination for smart and successful women that makes sense in their busy lives and offers compelling programming on days when they are currently under-served.”
