Life-size doll models and masked love interests are coming to TV this season.
English-language multicultural Asian American network Myx TV has announced its 2015 lineup, which includes the renewal of “Bagged,” a dating show in which contestants wear masks to take appearance out of the equation, and new series “The Doll Life,” a spinoff of last year’s docu-series “I’m Asian American and…,” which will follow designers and models of the Japanese living doll clothing brand Dolldelight.
“Eat Your Words,” which pits amateur food bloggers against the professional chefs the bloggers negatively reviewed online, has also been renewed and will return Aug. 16. “Bagged” will return June 25, and “The Doll Life” will premiere Tuesday, Oct. 20.
Another original series, “Call to Cosplay,” was previously announced for a second season, which premiered May 12.
“We’re bringing back our most well-received, out-of-the-box, original series and, for the new season, making them bigger and better,” said Miguel Santos, Myx TV general manager, in a statement. “Viewers can look forward to better costumes, crazier scenarios, bigger sets and more interesting characters.”
Also in production for its YouTube channel (YouTube.com/user/MYXTV) is “The Alternative,” featuring a spiritual host who offers insight on common health conditions and ways to combat them using Eastern medicine and common household items.
Myx also acquired Asian horror movies for a programming block called “Shiver and Shake,” featuring films from all across Asia, including “Hide and Go Kill,” “Tokyo Gore School” and “Shirome.” “Shiver and Shake” premieres Friday, July 17.
