AMC/Sundance Channel Global has acquired three titles – Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?, Braxton Family Values (pictured) and a new season of My Fair Wedding with David Tutera – for fall and winter premieres on WE tv Asia.

The three series will be available to viewers in Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore and Taiwan, and will highlight big characters, from comedian Joan Rivers to R&B singer Toni Braxton and her family.

Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best? depicts the conflict and comedy as the outrageous and opinionated Rivers moves in with her daughter, Melissa. The 8 x 60-minute series is set to premiere in October.

Grammy Award-winning artist Toni Braxton, her four sisters and their mom are the stars of Braxton Family Values. The series, which documents the Braxtons’ dealings with sibling rivalry, bankruptcy and even an arrest, will premiere in November.  The 10 x 60-minute series is produced by Magical Elves.

Lastly, WE tv Asia will air the fourth season of My Fair Wedding with David Tutera starting in January. The 12 x 60-minute Pilgrim Films & Television series follows celebrity wedding and event planner David Tutera as he creates unique and elegant wedding days for various brides and grooms.

“With entertaining, highly watchable personalities, these series proved to be incredibly popular Stateside and we’re excited to add them to our diverse slate of programming on WE tv in Asia,” commented Harold Gronenthal, senior vice president & general manager of AMC/Sundance Channel Global.
