In this week’s round-up, new unscripted and documentary titles are on the way for E!, MTV and MTV Canada.

Viacom-owned U.S. network MTV is set to share its most outrageous celebration stories in the Den of Thieves-produced Greatest Party Story Ever.

Set to premiere January 14 at 10:30 p.m. EST/PST, the series will feature real people recounting their most unforgettable nights out. The first-person storytelling will be re-enacted through unique styles of colorful animations, from drawings to stop-motion claymation.

North of the border, MTV Canada will be hitting the road with adventure series Wild Ride. Produced by Nomadic Nation, the 16 x 30-minute series will follow 15 backpacking thrill seekers as they journey across three Southeast Asian countries. The group will traverse more than 3,000 km on a three-wheeled Tuk Tuk to their ultimate destination: Thailand’s infamous Full Moon Party on the island of Ko Pha Ngan. The series is set to bow January 21 at 11:30 p.m. EST/PST.

Finally, American personal trainer and television personality Jillian Michaels (pictured) will provide viewers with an unfiltered look into her personal life when entertainment channel E! airs Just Jillian on January 19 at 10 p.m. EST/PST.

The eight-part docuseries will follow Michaels as she balances the demands of her burgeoning company, Empowered Media, through book deals, exercise DVDs and a workout gear line while taking care of her two children and 15 pets alongside long-time life partner Heidi. The series is produced by All3Media America-owned prodco Studio Lambert USA.
