New York, April 29, 2013 – WE tv has greenlit the new original series, House of Curves, which spotlights Atlanta-based, plus-sized fashion designer Kenyatta Jones as she takes on the skinny world of fashion with her edgy, fashion-forward designs. WE tv has ordered six, hour-long episodes to premiere this summer on Thursday, June 13 at 10 pm, ET/PT. House of Curves joins WE tv’s already robust summer slate including the new shows Marriage Boot Camp: Bridezillas, Pregnant & Dating and Sanya’s Glam & Gold, along with the returning series Bridezillas, L.A. Hair and Kendra on Top.
“As an entrepreneur and all-around savvy woman, Kenyatta is the perfect example of the type of woman that WE tv spotlights – strong, independent and taking charge of her life,” said Lauren Gellert, WE tv’s senior vice president of original production & development. “Kenyatta is relatable to so many working women who are ‘leaning in’ to their careers while also offering viewers a high-octane dose of entertainment with her fierce attitude and take-on-the-world perspective.”
House of Curves follows the passionate and hilarious trials of designer Kenyatta Jones as she kicks down the doors of fashion with her six-inch stilettos, teetering on the precipice of making it big in the skinny world of fashion. Kenyatta is the CEO of Bella René and has designed her dream wardrobe for plus-sized women. With her two best friends from college, an assistant with an attitude, and her mother, who is also her main investor, Kenyatta and company will do anything to expand their brand. Mishaps, misadventures and in-house bickering may get in the way of the dream, but in the end, her girls always have Kenyatta’s back. The team is put to the test when Kenyatta and crew compete for recognition in the fashion capital of the world, New York City.
House of Curves is produced for WE tv by Pie Town Productions with executive producers Tara Sandler, Jennifer Davidson, Scott Templeton and Jennifer Lane. The executive producers for WE tv are Lauren Gellert and Kate Farrell.
