E! today unveiled plans for three new original unscripted series — Stewarts & Hamiltons, WAGS and the Kardashian-based series Dash Dolls (working title), the latter of which is set for this fall and will focus on the employees of the family’s clothing boutiques.
All three have been ordered for eight one-hour episodes. Stewarts & Hamilton, centering on the families of Kimberly Stewart (daughter of author Alana Stewart and musician Rod Stewart) and George Hamilton (Alana Stewart’s ex-husband) and WAGS, about the wives and girlfriends of pro athletes, will both air in the summer. E! said the additions will mean a 50% increase in reality TV hours in 2015.
To help that, the network also announced the return of #RichKids of Beverly Hills, which will premiere its third season on May 24 at 10 PM; Total Divas, which will return for Season 4 in the summer; and Christina Milian Turned Up for the fall.
