Stanger – who is also an author and CEO of Beverly Hills dating service, The Millionaire’s Club – has joined the Marriage Boot Camp net as an executive producer and producer on an as-yet-unannounced WE tv series.

She will also exec produce a second project that she developed and which WE tv will pilot later this year.

“She is the perfect personality to help us continue to solidify our place in the relationship and dating space, and it couldn’t come at a more exciting time as more viewers are engaging with our shows and personalities across platforms,” said Marc Juris, WE tv president, in a statement.

The deal was brokered on behalf of Stanger by Lance Klein at WME and Darin Frank at Sloane, Offer Weber and Dern.
