Alaska continues to be a popular setting for cable reality series. Following TLC’s Sarah Palin’s Alaska and History’s taxidermy-themed Mounted In Alaska comes Coast Guard Alaska, a new Weather Channel reality series produced by Al Roker. It is exactly what the title suggests.
TLC has renewed Say Yes To The Dress: Bridesmaids for a second season with a 18-episode order.
Meanwhile, what Bravo now calls “the critically acclaimed series” The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will return for Season 2 on Sept. 5. In addition to the premiere date, the cable network also announced two new cast members — Brandi Glanville and Dana Wilkey — who will join returning stars Taylor Armstrong, Camille Grammer, Adrienne Maloof, Kim Richards, Kyle Richards and Lisa Vanderpump.
