The Barbadian singer’s fashion-based TV programme will go on as planned.
Good news, Style Network viewers: If you were eagerly awaiting Rihanna’s fashion competition series, it will still go on.
Originally ordered to series by Style Network, Styled To Rock will now air on the Bravo channel, TheWrap has learned. It will premiere in the United States on Oct 25. Styled To Rock features 12 designers fighting for a US$100,000 (RM320,000) cash prize, a feature in Glamour magazine and the chance to become a member of Rihanna’s design team.
Music artiste/producer Pharrell Williams, model Erin Wasson and Rihanna’s personal stylist, Mel Ottenberg, will mentor the contestants.
With Rihanna executive producing, the freshman series landed some big name judges, including Miley Cyrus, Carly Rae Jepsen, Khloe Kardashian, Kylie Minogue, Kelly Osbourne, The Band Perry, Naya Rivera, Big Sean, and Ne-Yo.
Alongside Rihanna, Shed Media US, Overbrook Entertainment and Marcy Media Films are producing. Styled To Rock is the latest Style Network show to move to a sister NBCUniversal network after Style was shuttered last week and replaced by Esquire Network.
TheWrap reported exclusively last week that Style series Tia & Tamera and Giuliana & Bill have moved to E!. It will also air the remaining new episodes of Giuliana & Bill’s sixth season next year. Both series are under consideration for renewal. The fate of other Style Network series is still under consideration.
The male-centric Esquire Network replaced Style Network in 75 million homes last Monday in the US. Its programming currently includes five new original primetime series and shows mined from sister NBCU networks and other content providers. — Reuters
