A+E Networks-owned pay-TV channel Lifetime has bolstered its unscripted production slate on the heels of the successful six-part docuseries Surviving R. Kelly with the commissioning of three titles.

Anchoring the non-fiction lineup is the Brian Graden Media-produced Temmoraland (working title), which will document former recording artist Temmora Levy as she attempts to help tomorrow’s stars reach their highest potential through music.

The 8 x 60-minute series, which will to debut later this year, will follow Levy as she runs Arommet Academy, a musical bootcamp for talented and aspiring young singers in Memphis, Tennessee. The series will provide intimate insight into Levy as she navigates the challenges of training artistic children and their demanding stage parents and managing the girl group Karma while also balancing the daily demands of parenthood.

Temmoraland is executive produced by Brian Graden and Dave Mace for Brian Graden Media. Gena McCarthy, Brie Miranda Bryant and Mioshi Hill serve as executive producers for Lifetime.

Propagate Content’s tentatively titled mother-daughter cheerleader format Cheerleader Generation, meanwhile, will mark a return to the cheerleading arena for Lifetime after the network tried out for 2006′s Cheerleader Nation.

Cheerleader Generation will chart the lives of competitive cheerleading squads and their coaches at Lexington, Kentucky’s Dunbar High School coach Donna Martin and her daughter, and University of Mississippi (or Ole’ Miss) head coach Ryan O’Connor.

The series will follow Martin and O’Connor as they compete to be the first-ever mother-daughter coaches going after national championship titles in the same year at the high school and collegiate levels.

The 10 x 60-minute docuseries is scheduled to air this year on Lifetime.

Propagate’s Ben Silverman, Howard Owens, Laurie Girion and Karri-Leigh P. Mastrangelo serve as executive producers alongside Lifetime’s McCarthy and Cat Rodriguez.

Finally, Lifetime has greenlit Sharp Entertainment’s 10 x 60-minute Marrying Millions.

The docuseries will provide an in-depth investigation into six relationships where one partner is super rich and the other is not. On the brink of marriage, each couple must attempt to bridge their vast divide and fit into the other’s foreign world of riches or lack thereof.

Marrying Millions has been ordered for broadcast this year and is exec produced by McCarthy and James Bolosh for Lifetime.
