MTV’s Logo channel geared toward an LGBT audience and their families and friends, has announced three series that will be joining its line-up this year: Be Good Johnny Weir, Pretty Hurts and Setup Squad.
The announcement came at the Television Critics Association Winter Press Tour in Pasadena.
The Johnny Weir series, which explore the life of one of America’s most outspoken and colorful sports figures, had originally premiered on the Sundance Channel. Logo has acquired the first season’s episodes and will produce new episodes for a second season.
“Johnny Weir’s talent is as big as his irreverent personality,” says Dave Mace, Logo’s senior vice president of programming.
Also new: The workplace docu-soap Pretty Hurts which follows the staff and clients of a high-end Beverly Hills medical office that specializes in “liquid face lifts” and Setup Squad which focuses on a Manhattan-based matchmaking service that pairs up professional “wing people” with those who are unlucky in love.
Logo has also acquired episodes of Nip/Tuck which began airing this month and episodes of Will & Grace which will not air until 2013.
