Rinna to 'Merge' in Lifetime pilot

NEW YORK -- Lifetime has tapped Lisa Rinna to host a pilot for a new reality series being considered for primetime. The one-hour Merge comes to the rescue of newly married couples who are trying to decide which of their personal possessions they should trash or stash in their new household. A design team "merges" a couple's belongings while they are away on their honeymoon. Dalaklis McKeown Entertainment (Weddings of a Lifetime) will produce the series, with Chuck Dalaklis and Theresa McKeown executive producing. Rinna co-hosts SoapTalk on SoapNet. Her other TV credits include Days of Our Lives, Melrose Place and the Lifetime telefilms Sex, Lies & Obsession and Another Woman's Husband. Merge could follow in the footsteps of a new fleet of reality programming for Lifetime, including Final Justice with Erin Brockovich, which bowed in January, and What Should You Do? coming next month. "We have more nonfiction programming in development now than ever before," said Bill Brand, senior vp reality programming at Lifetime.
