Other projects in the works: “Hair Battle Spectacular” and “House of Glam”

Last Updated: January 10, 2010 @ 2:49 PM

Oxygen as expected Sunday greenlit its first dating series, "Love Games: Bad Girls Need Love Too."

The spinoff of "Bad Girls Club" will bow in March. Details below, followed by a slew of projects in early stages of development. "Love Games" is a real series; the other titles may or may never get off the ground.

– “Love Games” features three former “Bad Girls Club” stars — Amber (season three), Kendra (season four) and Sarah (season three) vying for the man of their dreams.  The ladies bring their feisty ways back to the airwaves in search of love from a pool of 13 eligible suitors.  Comedian Bret Ernst (“Wild West Comedy Show”) hosts the eight one-hour episode series. 
 
New in development (all projects feature working titles):

–“Fashion Drop": Oxygen’s on the look out for the best-dressed person in the room with the new game show series, “Fashion Drop.” Fashion-forward audience members are plucked from the crowd to strut their stuff before a panel of judges and prove that their sense of style beats all others. Each round, players are given a variety of clothing challenges that test not only their eye for fashion sense, but how fast they can put an outfit together under pressure. If the look doesn’t make the cut, the contestant is dropped – literally – through the floor until the last style maven remains standing.

“Fashion Drop” is produced by World of Wonder (“Tori & Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood,” “Million Dollar Listing”). Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato and Tom Campbell serve as executive producers.

– "Hair Battle Spectacular": A competition series revolving around the outrageous and fantastic superstars of fantasy hair design — over-the-top tresses created by artists. It’s half sculpture, half pop art, and ALL hair. Fantasy hair design draws thousands of enthusiasts to venues all over the country for grandiose performances and contests, with prizes ranging into the tens of thousands of dollars. “Hair Battle Spectacular” will bring 10 of the most talented fantasy hair artists together in one location where they will live, create and compete against one another in a series of escalating weekly challenges. In each episode, the weakest designer is sent packing, and the rest move on to tougher challenges, and ultimately, a $100,000 prize.

“Hair Battle Spectacular” is produced by 3 Ball Productions (“The Biggest Loser,” “For Love or Money”). The project was developed by J.D. Roth, Todd Nelson and Adam Greener who also serve as executive producers.

– “House Of Glam”: The show follows the trendsetting wardrobe, hair, and makeup stylists of the B. Lynn Group, one of the hottest styling agencies in the entertainment business. With clients such as Diddy, Naomi Campbell, Jamie Foxx, Rihanna, Jay-Z and Ludacris, it’s always a hustle to keep their stars in the latest styles. Oxygen’s cameras follow this group of tight-knit coworkers that is more like a fashion family than a haughty fashion agency. And Brandi Simpkins, the founder and CEO of B. Lynn Group, is the glue that holds them together. Whether Brandi is tasked to assign a stylist for a photo shoot, a magazine spread, New York Fashion Week, or the Grammy’s® it’s up to these artists behind the artists to make their clients look fabulous.

“House of Glam” is produced by Left/Right Inc. and The Foundry Media Group with Banks Tarver, Ken Druckerman, Brandi Simpkins and Charles Suitt serving as executive producers. Sandy Zweig serves as co-executive producer.

– "When Charlie Met Sarah" : This docu-series takes viewers back to 2005 when Charlie O’Connell (brother of actor Jerry O’Connell) appeared on “The Bachelor” and decided Sarah was the one to end his single days. Since then, their relationship has been on and off due to Charlie’s hard-partying ways. Now, they’ve reconnected and want to make it work for REAL. Currently, Charlie wants Sarah to move in but she won’t do that without a ring. Can they overcome all of love’s hurdles to rekindle the romance they once had on their first reality show encounter?

“When Charlie Met Sarah” is produced by Nancy Glass Productions (“Kitchen Impossible,” “Spice Up My Kitchen”).
