Magnolia Network Sets Max Slate


Magnolia Network is set to debut a raft of family-friendly unscripted content this fall on Max.

The slate, executive produced by Chip and Joanna Gaines, includes Roller Jam, Second Chance Stage and Human vs. Hamster. Stars Jordin Sparks, Martina McBride, Taye Diggs, Johnny Weir and more will headline the competition shows.

The six-episode Roller Jam is a competition series featuring the top roller-skating crews competing for a cash prize, while the eight-part Second Chance Stage is a talent competition series that offers a big break to contestants who have sacrificed their dreams. Also eight episodes, Human vs. Hamster sees pet hamsters go head-to-head with teams of humans.

“We’re thrilled to launch this fun, ambitious and expansive unscripted slate on Max this fall,” said Allison Page, president of Magnolia Network. “By leveraging our storytelling and production expertise for these imaginative formats, we aim to surprise and delight viewers of all ages and create opportunities for families and friends to enjoy together.”
