Viacom-owned lifestyle network CMT has ordered docuseries Racing Wives from T Group Productions as part of its early 2019 programming slate.

The eight-episode, hour-long unscripted series takes viewers behind the scenes of professional auto racing, offering a look into the private lives of the wives of world famous drivers.

Along with the wives, the series features aspiring NASCAR driver Amber Balcaen, who left everything behind in Canada to pursue a career in racing in North Carolina.

The series features Ashley and Samantha Busch, married to brothers Kurt and Kyle Busch, respectively, as they balance their family lives with their own career ambitions, along with the most recent addition to the racing wives community: former Tennessee Titans cheerleader Whitney Ward Dillon, wife of Daytona 500-winner Austin Dillon.

Dillon will be seen staking a claim on her place among the wives while staying true to her best friend, fellow Titans cheerleader and “BFF” co-blogger Mariel Lane.

Racing Wives is executive produced by T Group’s Jenny Daly, Rob Lobl and Ben DeNoble.

CMT also announced the renewal of Music City for a second, 10-episode season, which follows young musicians as they try to make it big in Nashville.

Music City is produced by Done and Done Productions in association with Lionsgate and executive produced by creator Adam DiVello, along with Kris Lindquist and Andrew Perry.

Both shows will premiere in early 2019.
