Nonscripted skein following Tori Spelling and her husband Dean McDermott as they operate a bed-and-breakfast will return to the net this summer, Oxygen execs said.
Femme-centered web has ordered 10 episodes of the show, which in addition to the business also chronicles the couple’s lives as new parents. Pair’s “entrepreneurial spirit really resonates with the Oxygen viewer,” said programming and marketing prexy Debby Beece.
Spelling series was a minor hit for Oxygen in its debut season, scoring well with its target women 18-34 demo.
