Actor Charlie Sheen (pictured) and celebrity event planner David Tutera are among the new faces on U.S. net WE tv’s 2014/15 upfront slate.

Sheen will put newly engaged couples to the test in the net’s Escape Reality and Estevez Sheen Productions-made, one-hour pilot Charlie Sheen’s Bad Influence - currently in production in Los Angeles - where he will challenge two partners’ knowledge of one another.

Meanwhile, WE tv’s new series include Glassman Media-produced Match Made in Heaven (8 x 60 minutes), where a preacher helps an eligible bachelor find a partner; All3Media America/Studio Lambert-produced social media experiment Mystery Millionaire (6 x 60 minutes), in which wealthy singles go undercover as average people looking for love; and Pilgrim Studios-made David Tutera’s CELEBrations (8 x 60 minutes), which follows celebrity event planner Tutera as he coordinates everything from rapper Lil Kim’s baby shower to a wedding for a former cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Finally, returning series include Kendra on Top, which comes back for a third season focusing on Kendra Wilkinson-Baskett’s continued problems striking a work-life balance; Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars, which tests the relationships of TV reality stars and returns for a second season this spring; and Tamar & Vince, which kicks off its third season spotlighting Braxton sister Tamar and her husband-manager Vince.

The slate of new and returning series will premiere on the net alongside the previously announced fourth season of Braxton Family Values, second season of SWV Reunited, and new series Love Thy Sister, which debuts this summer.
