Tonight is the series premiere of XOX Betsey Johnson on Style Network at 8/7c. For years, Betsey Johnson has led the fashion community with her youthful and eclectic styles, and now gives viewers unprecedented access to her life with daughter Lulu. With Lulu as her muse, Betsey and her daughter have always worked together to expand Betsey’s fashion empire, but the pressures of their business relationship have created a co-dependent, sometimes strained, mother-daughter relationship. After declaring bankruptcy, Betsey has been planning and conceptualizing on how to reinvent herself – and she can’t do it without Lulu by her side. However, Lulu is having her own metamorphosis, looking to step out of her mother’s shadow and create her own fashion line. Surrounded by a cast of characters, including Betsey’s right hand and personal assistant, Brandon, and Lulu’s outspoken best friend Angela, Betsey and Lulu’s deeply entangled relationship will be tested as they evolve both professionally and personally.
 
Following that, it’s the series premiere of Resale Royalty on Style Network at 9/8c. The show gives a glimpse into a vintage haven, exposing one of the fashion industry’s best kept secrets – an unassuming resale store with designer and vintage clothes and accessories nestled in a St. Louis strip mall. It chronicles the story of Sue McCarthy and her daughters, Diane and Laura, who own and operate one of the best resale stores in the country. This mother-daughter trio work to bring designer brands at affordable prices to their fashion savvy clientele. With more than 25 years of experience in the resale business, Sue has big plans for the future, but she needs her daughters – who have very different approaches to management – to help with the expanding empire. From spectacular closet buys of posh St. Louis socialites to exclusive shopping tours across the country, it’s an exploration of high-end fashion events, insider trends, designer insight and the highs-and-lows associated with a demanding business overseen by an eccentric staff, who are also family.
 
Tonight is also the series premiere of Breaking Amish: Brave New World on TLC at 10/9c. In season one of Breaking Amish, TLC introduced viewers to five young men and women who chose to leave their sheltered Amish and Mennonite lives to experience New York City together for the first time. This new spin-off finds original cast members Abe, Rebecca, Kate, Sabrina and Jeremiah reuniting and expecting to make a fresh start in Sarasota, FL – home to a large ex-Amish and Amish community. But, they are surprised to discover even more culture shock and unexpected challenges. The series exposes more relationship conflict, dramatic moments between the roommates, surprise visits, financial struggles and major decisions as this group tries to acclimate to their new “English” lives in yet another unfamiliar city.
 
Finally, tonight is the series premiere of Family Tree on HBO at 10:30/9:30c. Down on his luck in love and life, having recently lost his job and girlfriend, 30-year-old Tom Chadwick has an unsure sense of his own identity. But when he inherits a mysterious box, Tom starts investigating his lineage and uncovers a world of unusual stories and characters, acquiring a growing sense of who he and his entire family are. Written and created by Christopher Guest & Jim Piddock, the new comedy series is a single-camera, documentary-style show in the manner of Guest’s acclaimed feature films (such as Best in Show, Waiting for Guffman, and A Mighty Wind). Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids) stars as Tom Chadwick in the HBO presentation, along with Tom Bennett and Nina Conti. The series also features appearances by Carrie Aizley, Bob Balaban, Ed Begley, Jr., Maria Blasucci, Matt Griesser, Christopher Guest, Don Lake, Michael McKean, Lisa Palfrey, Jim Piddock, Kevin Pollak, Amy Seimetz, Meera Syal, Ashley Walters and Fred Willard.
