TV Land welcomes Rivers, Burnett

Network greenlights 'So Rich,' 'First Love'

TV Land has greenlit two more nonscripted original series, placing orders for “How’d You Get So Rich?,” produced by Mark Burnett and featuring Joan Rivers, and Brit format adaptation “First Love, Second Chance.”

Network has ordered six half-hour episodes of “How’d You Get So Rich?,” in which Rivers will visit big estates across the country and interview their well-heeled occupants. Series is exec produced by Burnett and Zoo Prods.

Produced by Granada America, “First Love, Second Chance” reunites long-broken-up couples to see if any chemistry remains. TV Land has ordered six 60-minute episodes of that skein.

Moves mark a continuing push into original reality fare for TV Land, which earlier this week confirmed the greenlighting of another Brit format adaptation, “Make My Day,” from producer Michael Davies and Sony Pictures Television.
