Oxygen Greenlights More Reality Shows With ‘Fix My Mom’ & ‘Virtually in Love’

Oxygen Media greenlit two hour-long series to continue the networks’ increase in reality programming, adding shows “Fix My Mom” and “Virtually in Love” that both focus on personal relationships of millennial women.

“Fix My Mom” follows five mother-daughter pairs that undergo physical and emotional challenges in hopes to mend their broken relationships. “Bad Girls Club” life coach Laura Baron will guide the women to find the root of their issues. The show premieres at 10 p.m. on Nov. 3 before switching to its normal time at 9 p.m. on Nov. 10.

“Virtually in Love” is slated for a 2016 release. The show gives young couples the opportunity to finally meet face-to-face with their online love interests. Each episode will determine whether or not the pair will click by traveling to their hometowns and spending time with their family and friends.

“While showcasing the complex and sometimes challenging relationship journeys of millennials, these new series take it one step further by giving young women a chance at reconciliation or a new beginning,” said Rod Aissa, exec VP of original programming and development.

The shows have added to Oxygen’s reality lineup that includes “Pretty Strong” and “Prancing Elites,” which was recently renewed for a second season.

“Fix My Mom” is produced by Bunim-Murray Productions with Gil Goldschein, Julie Pizzi, Sean Rankine, Dave Rupel and Mark Seliga serving as exec producers.

“Virtually in Love” is produced by Fly On The Wall Entertainment with exec producers Allison Grodner, Rich Meehan and Dena Waxman.
