E! Expands into Rom-Coms

Revealing its upcoming slate of original series, E! has announced it is expanding into the TV movie genre.

E! has greenlit six new romantic comedies that will debut in 2023, promising “inclusive feel-good stories and characters that are reflective of today’s society.”

On the series front, meanwhile, among the new titles debuting this summer are Celebrity Beef (working title), seeing celebrities go head-to-head in a cook-off, and Raising a F***ing Star, from the Emmy Award-winning producers of RuPaul’s Drag Race and Million Dollar Listing.

Slated for next year is Anthony Anderson and Mom: European Vacation (working title), in which Emmy nominee Anthony Anderson treats his mom to a six-week tour around Europe as a token of appreciation for giving up her own dreams of being an actress to raise him.

Also debuting next year is Black Pop (working title), executive produced by Stephen Curry, exploring how Black Americans shaped American culture through film, television, music and comedy.

Love Limo will hit screens next year as well, seeing Todd Chrisley guide an unlucky-in-love single on a whirlwind day of speed-dating that will hopefully end in a date night.

These new series join E!’s other unscripted titles, including Mathis Family Matters, Celebrity Game Face and Growing Up Chrisley.
