WE also has four new series currently in development. Wayne's World will profile the many women in Newton's family who help the longtime entertainer manage his personal and professional lives. Elsewhere in Sin City, Wild Flowers will look at the women behind the floral shop Enchanted Florist as they struggle to balance work and play.
Taking a page from successful series Ace of Cakes and Cake Boss, Staten Island Cakes follows 19-year-old Vinny as he manages both a successful pastry shop and his very opinionated family. Dr. Halligan Project showcases the practice, as well as romantic life, of veterinarian Karen "Doc" Halligan.
The cable channel has also picked up former WB witch drama Charmed, which debuts June 21 at 5/4c and will air twice daily.
