NickMom is busy. Nickelodeon’s nighttime (10 PM-2 AM) comedy block aimed at mothers on its Nick Jr. channel announced four projects in development this morning at TCA, including Lounge, a talk/variety series exec produced by Whoopi Goldberg. NickMom has also greenlit a second season of its docu-comedy Take Me To Your Mother and this fall premieres its first scripted comedy, Instant Mom, starring Tia Mowry-Hardrict. Descriptions of the four new projects:
— Lounge, a talk/variety series exec produced by Goldberg featuring conversations between real, everyday moms who are given an opportunity to get pampered and have their dreams fulfilled.
— Country Mom, City Mom, from executive producers Relativity Real, a docu-comedy that follows mom Tanya McQueen as she splits time between raising her two teenage boys in small-town Texas and living in LA with her second husband and his kids.
— Undercover Cupid, a hidden camera series from executive producer Scott Stone that follows single parents whose teens and young adult children help pick dates for them.
— Untitled Vinnie Brand Project, a docu-comedy that follows comedian Brand — a father of five daughters who all tell him what to do. Brand exec produces along with Jim Breuer and Entertainment One.
