Style gives weight loss the spotlight in new series
Actress Brittany Daniel, a personal friend of Gettinger's, will act as the show's consulting executive producer. She is also going to appear on the show occasionally. Style has ordered nine episodes of Ruby, a one-hour premiere and eight half-hour episodes. The reality series will air this fall.
Style wants Ruby to be inspirational, yet fun. I'm glad that the network is expanding its programming to include body issues, since it already has fashion topics covered with makeover shows like How Do I Look?. It's a responsible move on Style's part to acknowledge that health is a significant part of looking good. I'll be keeping an eye out for this show in the fall.
