Hollywood Reporter: WeTV Upfronts announce new season of Marriage Boot Camp!

Charlie Sheen could be bringing his torpedo of truth to WE tv.

The Anger Management star is filming a pilot for the female-themed cable network, WE tv announced Thursday.

Charlie Sheen’s Bad Influence will see the former Two and a Half Men star test couples to see how well they know each other in the pilot produced by Escape Reality and Estevez Sheen Productions. Sheen will also exec produce the pilot alongside Steve Tisch, Laura Fuest Silva, Frank Sutera and Bob Maron of New Epic Entertainment.

As part of its upfront announcement Wednesday, WE tv also announced that its first scripted series — The Divide — will debut in July. That series, which counts Scandal‘s Tony Goldwyn as an exec producer, will be joined on the schedule by three new unscripted series: Match Made in Heaven, Mystery Millionaire and David Tutera’s CELEBrations.

WE tv has also granted additional season renewals to Kendra on Top (season three), Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars (spring) and Braxton Family Values spinoff Tamar & Vince (season three). They join the previously announced fourth season of Braxton Family Values, the second season of SWV Reunited and new entry Love Thy Sister, the latter of which will debut in the summer.

The new season of Marriage Bootcamp will focus on reality TV couples, with participating pairs including Jenni “Jwoww” Farley and Roger Matthews (Jersey Shore); Trista and Ryan Sutter (The Bachelor, The Bachelorette); Gretchen Rossi and Slade Smiley (Real Housewives of Orange County); Traci Braxton and Kevin Surratt (Braxton Family Values); as well as Tanisha Thomas and Clive Muir (Bad Girls Club).

“Successful television networks are built on good shows, and we are excited about these new and returning originals as we continue to build on WE tv’s strong momentum, engage both new and existing viewers and expand our audience base,” WE tv president Marc Juris said. “We are focused on delivering unique concepts and characters that break through the clutter, are buzzworthy and deepen engagement with the network, both on-air and online.”
