COZI TV, the network developed by the NBC Owned Television Stations division of NBCUniversal, announced that Pushing It, a new reality television show starring Jenny Skoog, a modern day birthing coach and personal trainer, will premiere on Sunday, June 2 at 9 PM ET. This series will follow Skoog and her adventures coaching and training three very driven New York City women. From a lawyer living the high life, to a very pregnant top-tier modeling agent, to a first-time mom trying to regain her fitness regime, Skoog delivers some tough love and important advice to these women from all walks of life, helping them get their bodies in shape before, during and after pregnancy and assisting in navigating life's challenges.

The network also of course airs classic TV series such as The Bionic Woman, The Six Million Dollar Man, Magnum P.I. and Charlie's Angels and that will continue. Hopefully some more classic TV series are added soon and we hear they might be soon (maybe summer of fall?). COZI TV is currently available to more than 40 million homes in the largest markets in the country, including the multicast channels of the 10 NBC-owned stations in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, San Francisco Bay Area, Dallas-Fort Worth, Washington, D.C., Miami-Fort Lauderdale, San Diego and Connecticut, among many other stations.
