TV One Orders Second Season of Sitcom Born Again Virgin; Disney Channel Is Stuck in the Middle with New Comedy

Born Again Virgin

TV One announced that it has picked up its newest summer scripted comedy Born Again Virgin for a 12-episode second season scheduled to launch in early 2016. Currently airing Wednesdays at 10PM/ET, the sexy, sassy comedy which follows the exploits of a 30-something blogger who decides to embrace celibacy after years of unsatisfactory dating, recently posted its third consecutive week of episode gains in the key demo of W18-34. Additionally, the series is a Top 3 Cable Program on Wednesday nights at 10PM/ET among Black Households, W25-54 and P18-49. Born Again Virgin follows Jenna (Danielle Nicolet), a writer who decides to become celibate after a stream of unsuccessful dates and hook-ups leave her wanting more meaningful relationships. She decides to blog about her newly adopted sex-fast and share the hilarious "sexcapades" of her girlfriends - Kelly (Meagan Holder), a publicist, known equally for her success launching new clients as her ability to attract 'failure to launch' men and Tara (Eva Marcille), a budding actress who splits her time between gigs hanging out with her girls and finding her next suitor to bankroll her celebrity-inspired lifestyle. Delivering a bit of temptation is Donovan (Durrell "Tank" Babbs), their hot neighbor who makes staying on the right path nearly impossible for Jenna. Each week, the ladies comically work through their dating woes and career challenges while showcasing heartfelt moments of friendship.

Disney Channel has ordered the family comedy series Stuck in the Middle, starring Jenna Ortega (Jane the Virgin) as Harley Diaz, an engineering whiz who uses her inventions to navigate life as the middle child in a family of seven kids. Playing her siblings are Ronni Hawk as Rachel, Kayla Maisonet (Dog with a Blog) as Georgie, Isaak Presley (Austin & Ally) as Grant, Nicolas Bechtel (General Hospital) as Danny, Malachi Barton (Best Friends Whenever) as Beast and Ariana Greenblatt (Liv and Maddie) as Daphne. Production begins this November for a Spring 2016 premiere. Stuck in the Middle, a single-camera family comedy, centers around the Diaz family and is told from the point-of-view of the middle child - Harley.
