A+E Networks-owned cable channel Lifetime has commissioned Kinetic Content to produce a spin-off to social experiment series Married at First Sight.

Married at First Sight: Jamie and Doug Plus One (pictured) will chronicle season one couple Jamie Otis and Doug Hehner as they venture out on their journey into parenthood.

Three years into marriage, the couple who came together at the altar on cable television is now preparing for the birth of their child following the miscarriage of their son last year.

The spin-off is slated to document “the emotional moments leading up to and capturing the birth of daughter Henley Grace”, according to a release. The series will also follow the Hehners as they navigate their new lives, experiencing the challenges and benefits of parenthood.

Kinetic’s Chris Coelen, Eric Detwiler, Sam Dean and Lyndee Brown serve as executive producers on the series alongside Lifetime’s Gena McCarthy.

Married at First Sight: Jamie and Doug Plus One premieres Dec. 19 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on Lifetime. Two back-to-back episodes will air on subsequent Tuesdays, beginning Dec. 26 at 10pm ET/PT.

Created by Snowman Production Denmark, Married at First Sight follows singles yearning for a life-long partnership as they agree to a provocative proposal: getting legally married to a stranger the moment they first meet. The series has been licensed in more than 25 territories worldwide, including on A+E Networks’ FYI and Lifetime in the U.S., Channel Three in New Zealand, Channel 4 in the UK, and DR1 in Germany.
