AMC/Sundance Channel Global Announces New Programming Acquisitions For WE tv Asia

Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?, Braxton Family Values and New Season of My Fair Wedding with David Tutera to Debut in 2011 & 2012

New York, NY – 15 August 2011 – AMC/Sundance Channel Global today announced an exciting line-up of programming acquisitions for WE tv Asia. Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best?, Braxton Family Values and a new season of My Fair Wedding with David Tutera will premiere this autumn and winter.

WE tv is the ultimate women’s lifestyle network devoted to the wild ride of relationships in life’s defining moments. The channel is available in Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore and Taiwan.

“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.

Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best? reveals what happens when the country’s most outspoken, outrageous and opinionated mom, Joan Rivers, moves in with her independent daughter, Melissa. For the first time ever, the famous mother-daughter duo let cameras inside their homes as they try to put their conflicting personalities aside for the good of the family. The 8×60-minute series is a high-energy mix of comedy, reality and relatability and will premiere in October. Although there’s ample craziness and differences of opinion, the love is evident between the women.

Braxton Family Values features the Grammy© Award-winning artist Toni Braxton, her four equally talented sisters and their mom in a raucous family drama mixed with a dash of love and lots of laughter. In the 10×60-minute series, the tight-knit Braxton sisters and their mother take over WE tv with their brand of family love. They battle it out for the spotlight with sibling rivalry, man drama, bankruptcy, an arrest and much more. Braxton Family Values will premiere in November.

The fourth season of My Fair Wedding with David Tutera brings all-new brides, all-new stories and even more exciting transformations. With 12×60-minute episodes premiering in January, this season redefines the term “Big Day.” Celebrity wedding and event planner David Tutera uses his extraordinary talents to transform out-of-the-ordinary wedding day desires into truly elegant affairs for each bride and groom.

WE tv can be seen in Hong Kong on PCCW’s Now TV. In Korea, it can be seen on SkyLife in HD. The network can be seen in Singapore on SingTel’s Mio TV and in Taiwan on Chunghwa and DishHD.
