Figure SkaterLifetime’s successful Dance Moms franchise is not only getting a spinoff with “Dance Moms: Miami,” but, according to THR ,  its also getting a sister show: “Ice Moms.  With L.A.-based  Collins Avenue, the production company behind Dance Moms,  the network is developing the new reality show about the world of competitive figure skating.

“We’ve conquered the world of competitive dance with our hit ‘Dance Moms’ and have great plans to expand the franchise to Miami,” Rob Sharenow, executive vice president of programming at Lifetime Networks, said in a statement. “Now, we’re bringing the format to the intensely competitive world of figure skating and revealing the explosive dynamic between the kids, parents and coaches who all want to be the best. We’ll show all the blood, sweat and tears it takes to be a champion on ice.”

“Ice Moms” will follow Laurie Vigilante and Adam Schmidt, a Dearborn, Michigan-based figure skating coaching duo. In a press release, Lifetime described the two as “determined” coaches who often clash with their students’ parents.  What that really means is the coaches will rail on potential prodigies, often to the chagrin of the parents, and they’ll be some negative portrayals all around.

“‘Dance Moms’ quickly became a stand-out hit for Lifetime last year and while I’ve never actually watched it (well maybe once) it’s a horrifying, behind-the-scenes look at a competitive dance studio. The show is riveting due mostly to instructor Abby Lee Miller, who runs a tight ship, forcing the girls into inappropriate costumes, shaming them into performing better and pitting the moms against each other.

So…if you love figure skating, or love watching moms exploit their kids for 15 minutes of fame, then you’ll probably love Ice Moms. Whether or not it’s good for the sport remains to be seen.  Check back for more details and  to find out the official launch date.
