Bravo and Oxygen -- now corporate siblings after NBC Universal's acquisition of Oxygen in November -- made the announcements separately Tuesday. The news of "Tori & Dean's" renewal marks the first major programming green light since the NBC Uni acquisition, Oxygen said.
D-List is coming back for a fourth season this year. Returning are Griffin's assistant, Jessica; her assistant's assistant, Tiffany; her "manager," Tom; and her mother, Maggie. This season could see Griffin have her staff adorn uniforms "to finally show a little respect for the company," Bravo said.
D-List, from Picture This Television, is executive produced by Marcia Mule, Bryan Scott, Lisa M. Tucker and Griffin.
Meanwhile, the Oxygen series is working under the title "Tori & Dean: Still Inn Love" for its third season, targeted to premiere in the summer with eight hourlong episodes. The new season will follow husband-and-wife stars Tori Spelling and Dean McDermott as they leave their bed and breakfast behind, move back to Hollywood, buy a new house and search for preschools for their baby, Liam.
