WE tv is opening up the controversial world of kids beauty pageants in a new documentary reality series, Little Miss Perfect.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the network has ordered six one-hour episodes for the show, which follows Florida families entering their 5- to 11-year-old daughters in a beauty competition.
"There's a real fascination with these beauty pageants," said Steve Cheskin, senior vp programming at WE. "In parts of the South, it's taken very seriously, and in other parts of the country they're looked at with near-disbelief."
"We're taking an approach that's completely neutral," said Charlie DeBevoise, NorthSouth co-owner and "Perfect" executive producer. "I'm inspired by Sundance's 'Nimrod Nation'; I loved the way it showed its subject in a respectful and objective way and let the audience decide how to feel about it."
