In this week’s round-up, new unscripted titles are set to air on a range of networks, including truTV, E!, Travel Channel and Ovation TV.
Entertainment channel E! is readying the Kardashians spin-off Dash Dolls for its September premiere.
The 8 x 60-minute series follows the exploits of employees at Hollywood’s DASH boutique – an upscale clothing and accessory chain from Kim, Kourtney and Khloé Kardashian – while representing the Kardashian brand. Produced by Bunim/Murray Productions, the series airs September 20 at 9 p.m. EST/PST and stars Khloé’s best friend Malika Haqq and twin sister Khadijah Haqq-McCray.
Elsewhere, Adam Conover (pictured) aims to destroy long-held perceptions for truTV’s Adam Ruins Everything. The 11 x 30-minute series mixes comedy, history and science, and looks to refute widespread misconceptions of information we take for granted. The Big Breakfast-produced series debuts on September 29 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.
Meanwhile, U.S. net Travel Channel is set to launch the Big Table Media-produced getaway series 50/50 on October 4 at 7 p.m. EST/PST.
Hosted by travel experts Samantha Brown and Chris Grundy, the 6 x 60-minute series plucks unsuspecting individuals from the street for an impromptu and extravagant 50-hour, US$50,000 getaway. Travelers will choose between exotic adventures, such as scuba diving in Thailand or rappelling down South Africa’s Table Mountain.
Finally, American arts network Ovation TV will unveil art collecting series Art Breakers on October 4 at 8 p.m. EST/PST. The four-part series – produced by Story Monster TV – spotlights Miller Gaffney and Carol Lee Brosseau, two of the country’s top art advisors, as they discover budding artists, commission pieces, and help their clients uncover investment-worthy works.
