NBCUniversal cable net Style has added nine new series to its development slate for 2013-2014.

The series, all currently with working titles, join the previously announced competition series Glam Squad (working title) from exec producer Charlize Theron.

Among the new titles are Reconstructing Beverly Hills from Bunim-Murray Productions, which looks at plastic surgeries gone wrong and the Beverly Hills doctors that attempt to fix the damage.

Also on the slate is Keep the Party Moving from Cineflix Productions, a competition series pitting home entertainers against each other to see which one can pull off the best “progressive dinner.” PB&J’s Matched by Design, meanwhile, follows interior design broker Lloyd Princeton as he matches well-off clients with A-list designers.

Crazy Beautiful from 20 West Productions looks at those who will go to seemingly insane lengths to achieve their ideal look, ranging from foot-long fingernails to triple L breast implants. In a similar vein, Style Junkies from Jack Osbourne’s prodco, Schweet Entertainment, documents those who will indulge their stylistic whims at any cost – even if it means outfitting the family pet with a couture wardrobe.

Docusoap Selita from 51 Minds follows supermodel Selita Ebanks as she embarks upon a new career and launches a clothing line. Meanwhile, another docusoap, Power House from Magilla Entertainment, features Tiana von Johnson, founder of the first luxury real estate agency in New York to be owned by an African American woman.

Rounding out the development slate are countdown show The Fabulist from Lionsgate Entertainment, and Bray Entertainment’s kid fashion design competition, Fashion Phenoms.

“We are excited to expand our programming slate by developing edgy, fun, informative series that are accessible and aspirational,” said Sarah Weidman, senior vice president, original programming and development for Style, in a statement. “By partnering with creative and talented producers, Style provides a unique, optimistic environment for our viewers who have an insatiable appetite for looking good and living stylishly.”
