North American networks want more drama and food competitions, with WE tv adding more L.A. Hair, TruTV re-upping Container Wars, and W Network premiering the fourth season of Come Dine With Me Canada.

In the U.S., WE tv has lined up a third season of L.A. Hair. Eyeworks USA will deliver the 12 x 60-minutes episodes for 2014. L.A. Hair follows the clientele and stylists at a hair salon owned by stylist Kim Kimble (pictured above),whose clients include Vivica Fox, Debbie Allen and Michelle Williams.

Over on TruTV meanwhile, the cable network has ordered a second season of Container Wars from Santa Monica-based T Group Productions.

The 13-episode season will continue to follow the treasure hunters who bid on containers at commercial shipping ports. The drama results in high stakes, with bidders only having a few minutes to decide whether to bid on a container.

In Canada, Come Dine With Me Canada will return on the W Network with its being billed as the show’s most adventurous season yet.

Premiering on September 30, the Proper Television-produced series will journey to Newfoundland, Vancouver, Niagara Falls and Ottawa. The fourth season will also have newly themed blocks, including barbecuing, bacon and Italian cuisine.
