Asian American-targeted cable net Myx TV has ordered the docuseries The Doll Life (pictured), which delves into the Japanese “living doll” clothing brand Dolldelight.

Produced by Thirsty Tiger Television, the series is a spin-off of the net’s docuseries I’m Asian American and… and follows designer Cyril Lumboy and her “House Dolls” – women made up into real-life versions of dolls – as they grow the brand while juggling personal lives.

The Doll Life debuts on October 20 at 8 p.m. EST/PST.

Elsewhere, the net is also bringing back the Aureus Grex-made dating series Bagged, where contestants don masks “pitting personality against appearance,” as well as the Thirsty Tiger Television-produced Eat Your Words, in which amateur food bloggers are challenged to out-cook the professional chefs they negatively reviewed online.

Meanwhile, on the digital side, the net is starting production on an original series for its YouTube channel titled The Alternative. Produced by Aureus Grex, the show features an as-yet-unnamed host who advises on how best to combat various health conditions using Eastern medicines and common household items. The show is the first in a number of series slated to debut on YouTube.
