U.S. network CMT is lining up four new series to launch this fall, including a show following former Voice winner Cassadee Pope (pictured), and an as-yet-untitled series from Jersey Shore indie 495 Productions.

The as-yet-untitled Pope docuseries promises to present a behind-the-scenes look at the up-and-coming singer, who won the third season of reality competition show The Voice.

It launches October 4 at 9 p.m. EST and is produced by U.S. indie Good Clean Fun, with Jason Carbone, Nick Lee and Lyle Gamm serving as exec producers. Julia Silverton is the EP for CMT.

Meanwhile, the as-yet-untitled, eight-episode series from 495 promises to follow “a group of all-American guys and gals for a summer of fun on the coast of South Carolina,” according to the network, which adds that “though they hail from different parts of the South, they all have one thing in common: Southern pride.”

The series bows on November 8 at 9 p.m., and 495 founder SallyAnn Salsano serves as executive producer, with Melanie Moreau and Jayson Dinsmore exec producing for the network.

As reported in May, CMT is also bringing American Chopper star Paul Teutul Sr. and his custom motorcycle team back to television, with the Pilgrim Studios-produced Orange County Choppers.

The eight-episode series launches November 16 at 9 p.m., and is exec produced by Pilgrim’s Craig Piligian and Sam Korkis, and CMT’s Jayson Dinsmore, Joe Livecchi and Julia Silverton.

Finally, November will also see CMT launching Tattoo Titans , a reality competition series which will see four of the best tattoo artists from around the States facing off against each other in a competition “designed to push them to their artistic and mental limits,” according to the net.

The show is made by Original Media and launches November 16 at 10 p.m. Sam Berns, Charlie Corwin and Jordan Harman are the EPs.

“We’re continuing to build off of our recent success, and loading our fall schedule with brand new series, new episodes of returning series, acquisitions and the incredible music that CMT is known for,” said Katie Buchanan, CMT’s senior VP of program scheduling and acquisitions

“Our prime ratings average exploded over the previous quarter, as well as over a year ago, and we’re confident that these new series will continue our growth trend.”

CMT also confirmed that Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team would return for an eighth season, starting September 6; and promised a new episode of signature music series CMT Crossroads, featuring Stevie Nicks alongside country trio Lady Antebellum.

The net will continue to air Dog and Beth: On The Hunt, Cops Reloaded and Bounty Hunters.
