A+E Networks-owned channel Lifetime has ordered two docuseries set to explore what happens when a woman becomes unexpectedly pregnant.
Produced by ITV Entertainment, the 3 x 60-minute 30 Something Grandma (pictured) will follow the story of three women – young mothers themselves – set to become grandmothers in their 30s as their teenage daughters prepare for the birth of their own children.
The series will examine the challenges for the two generations of women as they attempt to balance their relationships, career goals and dreams.
30 Something Grandma is executive produced by ITV Entertainment’s David Eilenberg, Simon Thomas, Brian Zagorski and Jennifer Duncan. Lifetime’s Mary Donahue and David Hillman are also listed as exec producers.
Elsewhere, Knocked Up (3 x 60 minutes) from 11th Street Productions will chronicle the journeys of three women who suddenly discover that they’ve become pregnant after a one-night stand.
The series will shadow the women as they adjust to their surprise pregnancies while re-thinking their living situations, relocate and coping with the father’s involvement or refusal to be involved.
30 Something Grandma premieres Nov. 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, followed by Knocked Up on Dec. 6 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
