A+E Networks announced a number of new offerings at their upfront presentation on Thursday, including the A&E reality show “Fit 2 Fat 2 Fit” and the Lifetime competition series “Sing It!”
“Fit 2 Fat 2 Fit” will tackle the issue of weight loss, tracking 10 personal trainers who will eat what the average overweight American eats and stop working out altogether. After four months of pigging out and slacking off, each trainer will team up with an overweight person “for a weight loss journey like any other.”
The History digital series “Shotgun” is billed as a game show that takes place on the road, with contestants trying to answer questions while riding “shotgun” in a high-performance race car that’s flying around a track at top speed.
Meanwhile, the Lifetime offering “Sing It!” will follow rival acappella groups from New Jersey as they are given a chance to work with coaches Deke Sharon (“Pitch Perfect”) and Diana Preisler. The singing groups will face off in weekly competitions leading to a championship sing-off.
Finally, “Tiny House: The First 24” is a digital companion series to “Tiny House Nation” that will “highlight some of the craziest and funniest moments of a family’s first 24 hours in their new tiny home.”
The four offerings join a number of projects previously reported on Thursday, including adaptations of the Alex Haley book “Roots” and Leo Tolstoy’s “War and Peace,” both of which will air on Lifetime, A&E and History.
