Oxygen has picked up two new docu-series set in the world of fashion and style: the Eva Marcille Project, which chronicles the daily life of fashion model/actress Eva Marcille (America’s Next Top Model), and LA Style, which profiles four young, hip Los Angeles-based celebrity stylists. They join recent greenlights for The Next Big Thing, Brooklyn Crew and Tanisha Gets Married. All five series will air in 2012. Here are more detailed descriptions on the newly picked-up shows:
The Eva Marcille Project is a docu-soap about four beautiful and successful best friends who help each other navigate the tumultuous waters of love, celebrity life, and the entertainment industry. At the epicenter of this group of friends is Eva Marcille, fashion model, actor, producer and recent television host of Oxygen’s Hair Battle Spectacular. Her group of best friends includes Denyce Lawton, an actress who starred in Tyler Perry’s House of Payne on TBS; Nikki Chu, an interior and product designer who has designed for several celebrities and major brands; and Kelly Marie Dunn, a talent and brand manager who has worked with A-list musicians and pop stars. The Eva Marcille Project is produced by Ish Entertainment with Michael Hirschorn, Madison Merritt and Wendy Roth serving as executive producers.
LA Style is a sizzling look into the lives of four breakthrough fashion stylists on the rise in the cutthroat and catty world of Hollywood fashion. Taylor Jacobson (The Rachel Zoe Project, Oxygen’s Hair Battle Spectacular) is a workaholic who has worked incessantly to procure an impressive list of clients and will fiercely protect them from rival stylists. Brett Alan Nelson is represented by a prestigious styling agency and will stay up around the clock to put his own spin on his looks because he’d rather die than have a client end up on a worst-dressed list. Sammy and Judy (aka “The Kids”) are a big double styling threat to other stylists in Hollywood. They style the It List of young, hip Hollywood and are squarely on the radar of LA’s fashion scene. And right on the group’s heels is Ashley Zohar (Taylor’s stylist best friend and also her part-time assistant). These are LA’s premier young super-stylists and they are taking no prisoners in clawing their way to the top. LA Style is produced by Original Media, with Charlie Corwin and Jay Peterson serving as executive producers.
