Oxygen Greenlights Millennial-Themed Series

Oxygen will profile millennial-themed relationships with two new series launching in November, the network said Thursday.

Fix My Mom, which premieres Nov. 3, puts mother-daughter pairs together in a series of physical and emotional challenges in a effort to improve their relationship; while Virtually In Love gives young couples the opportunity to finally be face-to-face with the person they have been dating online, said network officials.

“While showcasing the complex and sometimes challenging relationship journeys of millennials, these new series take it one step farther by giving young women a chance at reconciliation or a new beginning,” said Rod Aissa, Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Development, Oxygen Media. “With Fix My Mom and Virtually in Love, we continue our dedication to super serving our audience’s appetite to see themselves reflected in our programming with great storytelling and compelling characters.”
