*Oxygen has announced the pickup of a reality series that will follow fashion model, actor, producer and television host Eva Marcille.
Tentatively titled the “Eva Marcille Project,” the show will not only chronicle “the hectic yet fabulous life” of the “America’s Next Top Model” champ and recent host of Oxygen’s “Hair Battle Spectacular,” but also her three best friends as they help each other deal with love, celebrity life and the entertainment industry in the glow of Hollywood’s spotlight.
Oxygen President Jason Klarman commented, “We continue to ramp up our original production and focus on the characters and relationship driven themes that speak to our audience.”
Marcille’s group of homegirls includes Denyce Lawton, an actress who starred in Tyler Perry’s “House of Payne” on TBS, Nikki Chu, an interior and product designer who has designed for several celebrities and major brands and Kelly Marie Dunn, a talent and brand manager who has worked with A-list musicians and pop stars.
Oxygen has also greenlighted “LA Style,” a reality series that follows four young, hip Los Angeles-based celebrity stylists. These two docu-series join previously announced greenlights for “The Next Big Thing,” “Brooklyn Crew” and “Tanisha Gets Married.” All five series are scheduled to air on Oxygen in 2012.
