This summer, your Sunday evenings just got a little bit warmer. Earlier this week E! unveiled six new shows, including a reality series about the WWE Divas. The new summer show is titled “Total Divas”, and the show will put a concentrated focus on the everyday personal lives of the Divas outside of the ring. This show is looking to bring a different and much warmer perspective on these leading ladies of the ring.
The announcing of this new show was in addition to other shows that will be premiering on the E! Channel, to get the early attention of advertisers in New York for appropriate ad and commercial placement. With Total Divas being part of this initial upfront presentation from E!, it appears that there is a certain level of trust that is bestowed upon this series, which speaks volumes of what was produced.
It’s safe to assume that Total Divas would’ve been a stapled program if the WWE Network actually became a reality. WWE Network was supposed to debut the night after WrestleMania 28, but unfortunately the date was moved back to the fall of 2012. Since the WWE never was successful in making an official deal with any cable providers to broadcast the channel, WWE decided to settle for YouTube internet shows and continuing their working relationship with NBC affiliate stations such as USA Network, E! and SyFy.
The channel finds a good deal of success with its female demographic from the ages of 18-35, due to the success of such shows as The Kardashians and The Real Housewives of Atlanta. This could fare very well for the likes of The Bella Twins, AJ, Layla and the WWE Divas champion Kaitlyn. Total Divas will be premiering on Sunday, July 28 at 10:00pm ET and will be an hour-long show.
