Magnolia Network Announces Four ‘Fun, Family-Friendly’ Unscripted Shows

By Movieguide® Contributor

Chip and Joanna Gaines are bringing four unscripted, family-friendly series to the screen through their popular Magnolia Network. 

“Our hope for this network has always been to give families the opportunity to watch authentic, thoughtful storytelling together, so we are thrilled to offer a new expansion of this vision to Max,” the couple said of the new shows. “These shows will celebrate second chances, risk taking, imagination, perseverance and family connection, with so many more ideas to come.”

The projects are slated to premiere in 2024 and are described as “ambitious large-scale competitions” and “out-of-the-box social experiments,” per Variety, that parents and children can watch and enjoy together. 

SECOND CHANCE STAGE is a talent competition that offers competitors a second chance at achieving their dreams. 

Another competition show, HUMAN VS HAMSTER, sees a group of humans go up against a group of hamsters in games that test their smarts, skills and agility in an effort to answer the question of “who is the superior species.”

BACK TO THE FRONTIER follows families who leave the modern world behind to experience life as 1800s settlers.

ROLLER JAM pits the top roller-skating teams against each other to see who will take the title of America’s best roller-dancing team. 

In a press release about the upcoming shows, Max stated, “From ambitious large-scale competitions to out-of-the-box social experiments, this new premium content initiative will create a co-viewing experience in Max for families to watch and enjoy together, filled with elements of surprise, delight and authenticity.”

Allison Page, the president of Magnolia Network, said they are “excited to unveil a fun and broad slate of new shows intended to bring families together for engaging, playful and inspiring co-viewing experiences.”

“We recognized a white space in Max for fun, family-friendly content with unique formats and imaginative competition shows,” she continued. “We seized the opportunity to use our storytelling expertise to help bring these concepts to life and are thrilled to partner with Max to build a content offering the whole family will love.”

Grateful for the wonderful memories, the mistakes and mishaps, and all the miracles along the way. Thank you for being a part of this journey with us.”
