The CW Sets Premiere Dates for Two New Summer Reality Shows
If you're a fan of soapy reality shows about good looking young people and talent competitions featuring '80s era pop stars, it's going to be a good summer. The CW has just announced premiere dates for two of its four new reality series set to kick off this May.
First up is "The Catalina," a docu-soap centered around the staff of the Miami hotel hotspot of the same name. According to the network, viewers can expect the hotel's "young [and] wild" employees to "party harder than their guests." "The Catalina" bows May 29th at 8PM ET.
Premiering the same week on May 31st at 8PM ET is another unscripted series, "Breaking Pointe," which goes behind the scenes at Salt Lake City's Ballet West, "one of the most competitive ballet companies in the country" according to The CW.
The network also has two other series on tap for the summer. The Queen Latifah executive produced "The Star Next Door" is The CW's foray into singing competitions a la "American Idol" and "The Voice." '80s pop icon Gloria Estefan and country music star, John Rich will appear as mentors to the show's burgeoning musical talent.
And finally, we can also look forward to "Oh Sit!" a musical chairs game show. We'll be sure to let you know when a premiere date is set for this piece of high concept television programming.
