OWN greenlights three series

BBC Worldwide to produce two shows for the Discovery cabler

The Oprah Winfrey Network is adding three more new series to its programming slate, amping up a sked that is slowly finding its feet after a shaky first year.

The skeins are “Lovetown, USA” and “Lives on Fire,” both produced by BBC Worldwide Prods. for OWN, and “Are You Normal, America?” from “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader” shingle Zoo Prods.

“Lovetown” follows two matchmakers as they take over Kings- land, Ga, in an effort to help eight singletons locate mates.

“Lives” is a little less lighthearted, focusing on the struggles of four female firefighters in California as they try to balance the demands of their difficult jobs with the challenges of a male-dominated field and the pressures of family life.

“Normal,” a gameshow format, is the least conventional of the three. It uses polls, an audience jury and man-on-the-street interviews to determine whether certain behaviors, such as doing household chores naked or snooping into a partner’s emails, is normal.
