Lifetime has ordered a Dance Moms spin-off starring dance coach Abby Lee Miller (pictured).

Abby’s Studio Rescue (seven x one-hour), which is to premiere on the U.S. cable network on June 17, follows the Dance Moms star as she attempts to help struggling dance studios turn their businesses around.

The reality star will help the companies hire staff, schedule classes, renovate studio spaces and deal with overbearing moms, according to the network.

The series is produced by Collins Avenue, with Jeff Collins, Michael Hammond, Sandi Johnson and Bryan Stinson serving as executive producers alongside Lifetime execs Eli Lehrer, Mary Donahue and Kimberly Chessler.

Heather Schuster of Morocco Entertainment, who worked on Bravo’s salon makeover series Tabatha Takes Over, is also exec producing.
