These diverse and driven young doctors and wives of physicians look like they have it all— educated, sexy and at the top of their game. But peel back the layers and you will see that new obstacles might threaten their momentum. After punishing years of sacrifice and putting life on hold, how they navigate marriage, children, family and social pressure will either derail their promising careers or prove that they can have it all. Produced by Fremantle North America and developed by Purveyors of Pop with Matt Anderson and Nate Green serving as Executive Producers.
“Ladies of Dallas” (working title) From glamorous galas to scintillating scandals, and supersized spending habits, life in the elite tier of the Dallas social scene is hard to crack, and even harder to maintain.

Produced by Goodbye Pictures with Rich Bye and Andrew Hoegl serving as Executive Producers.
Coming to OXYGEN....
Olympic gold medalist Gabrielle Douglas will star (and executive produce) in a brand new docu-series documenting her road to the upcoming 2016 Olympics with the working titled “Douglas Family Gold”. After becoming the first African-American to win the individual all-around gold medal at the 2012 Summer Olympics, the young athlete is ready to repeat history in her quest for some more gold.
Here’s a synopsis of the show below:
Gabrielle “Gabby” Douglas stunned the world in 2012 by becoming the first African American in history to win the individual all-around gold medal at the Summer Olympics. Behind her meteoric rise was a supportive family willing to sacrifice everything for years to help her dream. Now 19, Gabby is ready to do it all over again in hopes of making it back to the medal podium in 2016. The bi-coastal Douglas family shuttles between California and Ohio to support Gabby’s training regimen while also juggling their own lives. Her brother John is the family's second Olympic hopeful in track and field, while devoted sisters Arie and Joy are eager to blaze their own paths. “Momager” Natalie keeps this tight-knit family in-check, knowing regardless of what happens, “Team Douglas” has already won gold.
Nick Cannon and his NCredible Entertainment company (along with Michael Goldman) will be brining a new reality series to OXYGEN tentatively titled, “The Hustle.” Peep what we can expect below:
This coming-of-age series follows the dynamic and hard-working assistants to successful entrepreneurs and entertainers. With blood, sweat and tears, these ambitious 20-somethings are willing to do whatever it takes to learn the ropes one step at a time so they can climb the ranks. These assistants are exposed to a life of privilege at work, traveling on private jets and attending lavish red carpet events, however, at the end of the day, they struggle just to pay rent and find time for their own personal lives.
And a new show “Preachers of Atlanta” will be joining the franchise. Here's what we can expect:
Atlanta is not only the home to fast cars, sprawling mansions and the southern elite, but a new generation of up-and-coming preachers who are superstars of the pulpit. The third installation from the popular franchise, “Preachers of Atlanta” documents the lives of the city’s young elite mega-pastors as they focus on the daily struggles and triumphs as husbands, wives, fathers, mothers and friends, while also maintaining their duties as men and women of God.
