Logo Taps Lisa Lampanelli, Carol Leifer, Ballet Dancers & Dogs for New Programming Slate

Lisa Lampanelli, Carol LeiferLisa Lampanelli and Carol Leifer are getting in bed with Logo. According to Deadline, the two comediennes have projects in the works at the network.

Lampanelli and her husband will star in 'Big Loud Lisa,' a new reality series about the newlywed couple adjusting to life. Chelsea Handler's Borderline Amazing Productions is behind the project.

Other reality projects include 'Design my Dog' and 'Ballet Beach.' 'Dog' is a a competition series that tasks dog owners and fashion designers to create "canine couture." The prize? Cash and a dog calendar contract. Seriously.

'Ballet Beach' follows the dancers at a prominent ballet company in Miami.

Meanwhile, Leifer -- one-time 'Seinfeld' writer and 'Celebrity Apprentice' contestant -- is bringing new scripted programming to Logo with 'Out in the 'Burbs.' The series follows Carol (played by Leifer) and Patrice, partners who live in the suburbs. Leifer and Troy Miller are executive producing the project.

Tell us: Do any of these projects sound like something you'll watch?

I'm excited about Carol Leifer's show, but disappointed yet again in the rest of the new shows. A reality show about a straight comedian and her husband? If I want to watch shows about straight people, I can go to, gee, *every other* channel on TV. Logo is supposed to air shows about gay people, for gay people. Where are the shows like Noah's Arc, The Big Gay Sketch Show, Rick & Steve, First Comes Love and Be Real like they aired in the earlier years of the network? They at least brought back Exes & Ohs, but it took them *four years* to air the second season. It's obvious Logo is now only making programming for one kind of viewer - gay men who are into fashion, pop culture, and apparently, 'canine couture.' Nothing wrong with those guys, but other gay people do exist - like, say, lesbians. And gay men who aren't into these same stereotypical things. And we're still starved for programming we can relate to and identify with. Logo needs to step up and give LGBT viewers what we want.
