As part of MTV's new ambitious programming schedule, the network has green lit Daddy's Girls
, a spin-off of the family-themed reality series Run's House
. After five seasons, fans have witnessed Vanessa
and Angela Simmons
grow up before their eyes under Rev. Run
's roof. Soon, viewers will watch the sisters as they make a permanent move to Los Angeles while they take a step toward independence.
Daddy's Girls will feature the sisters as they set up a west coast office and showroom for their successful pastry tennis shoe and apparel line. It also follows Vanessa as she pursues her acting career. The Run's House
sisters might be thousands of miles away from home, but the values and lessons their father has instilled are with them always and Rev. Run is just a phone call away.
In addition to Angela and Vanessa, the Run's House
spin-off will also introduce two new faces, including cousin and business associate Jessica and friend Aliceia. Together, the four girls are determined to make it in Los Angeles with the Rev. guiding them along the way.
Meanwhile, Daddy's Girls
isn't the only new series from MTV coming next year. The network has also included Rob Dydrek's Fantasy Factory, The CollegeHumor Show, Nitro Circus, How's Your News?, The Girls of Hedsor Hall
and College Life
, just to name a few.
"This is a generation with the bravado and drive to reinvent the world, and the ingenuity to actually pull it off," MTV president Brian Graden said in a statement. "These new series reflect Generation 'Why Not?', living, working and playing on their own terms, 'adventure capitalists' if you will, pursuing a variety of thrill seeking, 2.0, express-yourself enterprises."
"In the coming months, we are unveiling an extremely ambitious launch schedule filled with an unprecedented volume of new content," vice president Tony Disanto added. "We are giving our viewers a spectrum of choice across a diverse slate of exciting creative in various genres and formats by expanding to new timeslots and fast tracking projects.”
