OWN greenlights Beverly Johnson skein

'House' to follow model and her family in Palm Springs

Cabler OWN has greenlit a new unscripted series, “Beverly’s Full House,” an unscripted series that follows model Beverly Johnson and three generations of her family living together in her Palm Springs, Calif. home.

“House” will be exec produced by Jason Carbone, Nick Lee and Johnson for the Good Clean Fun production banner.

The show’s initial order is for eight hourlong episodes, which will premiere in February on the cabler.

OWN, a joint venture between Oprah Winfrey’s Harpo and Discovery Communications, has struggled to gain traction since it was rebranded from Discovery Health.

Execs have admitted to a series of missteps during the femme-centric net’s launch at the beginning of the year, but say they’re on the right track and have moved several more shows into production in the last few weeks.
