Wilson Phillips has landed a reality series, reports New York Magazine. The girl group, famous in the late '80s and early '90s for hits like “Hold On,” are headed to TV in a bid to reclaim their fame.
TV Guide Network announced the Emmy-nominated group’s comeback vehicle yesterday. “The Wilson Phillips Project” will document the lives of sisters Carnie Wilson and Wendy Wilson, and BFF Chynna Phillips. Yes!
“Between touring, recording a new CD and raising nine children, the show promises love, laughter and head bumping!” said Carnie Wilson.
“Our original programming is bringing fans closer to their favorite celebrities, and our new show with Wilson Phillips underscores this commitment,” notes Allen Shapiro, Chairman of TV Guide Network.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the pilot episode will depict the girls’ family lives. The series is set to premiere later this year.
The girls have been hustling for a while now. They’ve put out a Christmas album, went on tour, and appeared in a “Bridesmaids” cameo. Chynna had a stint on “Dancing With the Stars,” and Carnie had a judging role on “Karaoke Battle USA.”
Do you think their new reality show will put Wilson Phillips back in the spotlight?
