VH1 is set to build more programming on a reality theme that is working for the cable channel. The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the network placed a series order for “Family Therapy,” a spinoff of “Couples Therapy.”
“‘Family Therapy With Dr. Jenn’ will shine the light on five celebrity families at various crossroads as they undergo three weeks of intensive family therapy to work out their differences,” THR reports. “Everyone will participate in individual and group counseling, as well as relationship exercises with family therapist Jenn Mann to see if their damaged relationships can be rebuilt.”
Among the celebs lined up to take part are exes Dina Lohan and Michael Lohan, “Teen Mom’s” Briana Dejesus and her sister Brittany Dejesus, Bam Margera of “Jackass” and his mom, April Margera, “I Love New York’s” Tiffany “New York” Pollard and her mom, Sister Patterson, and entrepreneur Damon Dash and his brothers Jeremy Dash and Bobby Dash, THR reports.
Production got under way this week, with a goal of premiering early next year.
