MuchMoreMusic will air I Want to Work for Diddy on Sundays starting Aug. 24, following 13 finalists vying to become an assistant to music mogul Sean Combs, followed later that night by Brooke Knows Best, which tracks the 19-year-old daughter of wrestler Hulk Hogan as she strikes out on her own.

Sundays on MMM will also see Gene Simmons Family Jewels return for its third season.

In October, the channel will bow Luke’s Parental Advisory, another reality that follows Luther ‘Luke’ Campbell, former frontman for the hip-hop group 2 Live Crew, as he engages in his day-to-day adventures as a father, CEO and fiancé.

On MuchMusic, Legally Blonde the Musical: The Search for Elle Woods premieres on Aug. 24. Hosted by Haylie Duff (Seventh Heaven) the reality show will follow 10 young women competing to star in the Broadway version of the Reese Witherspoon movie.
