Made and True Life are back

Russell Simmons MTV's documentary series Made and True Life are back with all new episodes next weekend. The network will air two new episodes of True Life and four new episodes of Made. The episodes will air in an afternoon programming block on July 20th from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. ET.

I think I'm mostly likely to watch Made: Model, airing at 3 p.m. ET. The show will turn Adam Stewart, a hippie kid with long hair, into a male model. He'll work with experts on his appearance for five weeks leading up to a senior class fashion show. There he'll compete with the other So-Cal hotties for a modeling contract. But here's why I'm interested. Russell Simmons and Pete Wentz will guest star on the episode and give Adam some advice. Why them? I guess Russell Simmons is okay; that guy could give advice on how to be successful in any industry. And he does own Phat Farm. But Pete Wentz? Did I miss something?

I put a full description of the new shows after the jump.

1pm: True Life: I'm Deaf - On this episode of True Life, you'll meet two young people who were born completely deaf and must overcome huge obstacles to get the most out of their lives. They're trying to make their way in the world but will their deafness hold them back?

2pm: True Life: I'm a Compulsive Shopper - Everybody shops. But for some people, walking out of a store with a bag full of something new provides a thrill like no other. On this episode of True Life, you'll meet two young women whose compulsive shopping has become such a serious addiction that they can't lead healthy lives.

3pm: Made: Model - Long-haired hippie, Adam Stewart doesn't exactly jive with the So-Cal hotties at his high school. Now he wants to shed his '70s skin and be MADE into a model. Can the advice of Russell Simmons and Pete Wentz help Adam reach his dream? He only has 5 weeks until the senior class fashion show and a shot at a professional modeling contract!

4pm: Made: Dream Date - Anime fan Diana Kiester is obsessed with cartoons and comic books. She's a senior in high school and she's never been kissed. But now, Diana is ready to take on high schools most grueling challenge: getting a date. That's why Diana wants to be MADE and get a dream date to prom. She only has five weeks to master dating skills, get transformed and win the heart of her one true love.

5pm: Made: Mr. Chelmsford High School - Rian Decker is tired of spending his weekends alone. He's graduating high school, and it's time to grow up, make some friends, and maybe even get a date. His dreams may come true if he can be MADE into "Mr. Chelmsford High School." But with just 6 weeks until the competition, can he conquer his fears, master a talent, and find the perfect escort?

6pm: Made: Girly Girl to Motocross - Spoiled girly-girl Kady Smalley wants to prove that she's not just a just a pretty face by being MADE into a dedicated, fearless Motocross racer. But with just 6 weeks to train for a big race, will this pampered princess ditch her designer clothes for a dirt bike?

I'm Adam's mom. Pete Wentz is involved with Invisible Children, the charitable organization that Adam worked with (he was president of the Invisible Children Club at his school) and that he raised money for through his MTV Made experience.
