The CW Network's outrageous new one-hour mother/daughter competition, “Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants,” premieres Wednesday, December 12 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET), following the season finale of the hit series “America's Next Top Model.” The remaining seven episodes of the beauty pageant/reality show will then take over the 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET slot beginning Wednesday, December 19, followed by the hit drama “Gossip Girl,” and continuing through the season finale on January 30. Encores of “Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants” will air on Sundays at 9:00 p.m. ET and Tuesdays at 8:00 p.m. ET.
“Crowned: The Mother of All Pageants” explores one of the most emotional and volatile relationships as mothers and daughters (ages 18 and over) from all walks of life compete together – and against other mother/daughter teams – in order to win. Faced with challenges that focus on preparing them for the pageant show finale, the women will have to brand a `style' for their mother/daughter team via clothing and swimwear, create ways of expressing a point of view about issues in the world, and practice for the big pageant dance number. Not only do good looks, talent and a penchant for world peace have to run in the family, each team must also have patience, teamwork and a healthy sense of humor. In the end, one mother/daughter team will be “crowned” the winner and will receive a valuable prize package, including a $100,000 cash award, and, of course, a fabulous pair of tiaras.
