REALITY TV:

E! has greenlit “Mariah’s World,” a new docu-series about the private life of Mariah Carey.

The eight-episode reality show will offer access to the singer’s life as she begins her “Sweet Sweet Fantasy” tour through the U.K., the rest of Europe and Africa, while simultaneously planning her upcoming wedding to Australian billionaire business mogul James Packer.

“I’m excited to bring my fans into my life for the next journey I’m about to embark on,” Carey said. “I’m already having so much fun with this documentary and I know you will too. There is nothing like capturing these moments.”

“The series will present a unique, vulnerable and surprisingly humorous side to Mariah that her fans have never before seen while showcasing her unparalleled celebrity lifestyle filled with true glamour, maximum luxury and ultimate stardom,” said E!’s EVP of programming and development Jeff Olde.

Bunim/Murray Productions, which produces many of E!’s Kardashian series, plus Caitlyn Jenner’s “I Am Cait, will produce “Mariah’s World” along with Magic Carpet Productions. Gil Goldschein, Jeff Jenkins and Farnaz Farjam are exec producers for Bunim/Murray, and Stella Bulochnikov will also serve as an EP, in addition to Carey.

RATINGS:

Logo celebrated the 100th episode of flagship series “RuPaul’s Drag Race” with a good ratings story last week. In Nielsen’s “live plus-3” estimates, the season 8 premiere of the show drew nearly 1 million viewers for its premiere night (including encores).

That meant the series, which trended across Facebook, Twitter and Instagram on March 8, had its highest-rated launch in three years in both total viewers and key demos. According to Logo, “RuPaul’s Drag Race” also was streamed roughly 1.5 million times, and the number of unique visitors to LogoTV.com was roughly triple the total for its 2015 premiere.
