USA Network has greenlit “Miz & Mrs.,” a docuseries chronicling the lives of The Miz and Maryse. The six-episode, half-hour series will feature the married pair, known for being larger than life both in and out of the ring, as the Superstars become parents for the first time.
Produced by WWE and Bunim/Murray Productions and expected to air in 2018, “Miz & Mrs.” will complement USA’s WWE programming, which includes five hours of live programming each week, 52 weeks a year, with Monday Night Raw and SmackDown LIVE.
“As the exclusive television home for WWE’s flagship programming, USA Network is excited to give this passionate fanbase even more of two of WWE’s most colorful Superstars, The Miz and Maryse,” said Heather Olander, SVP of Alternative Development and Production. ““Miz & Mrs.” is an intimate, behind-the-scenes glimpse at this iconic couple as they face one of their most exciting challenges yet – becoming parents.”
““Miz & Mrs.” will undoubtedly be the most must-see show on television,” said Miz and Maryse. “We can’t wait to share this next chapter of our lives with our fans as we get ready to welcome our daughter into this world.”
Miz will be joined on-screen by his wife, former WWE Divas Champion Maryse, who is currently pregnant with the couple's first child, a girl. She's been on maternity leave for several months, and only appeared on WWE programming when WWE was near their home for Survivor Series. In addition to starring on the show, Miz and Maryse will also serve as executive producers.
This is far from the first reality series for Miz, as he and Maryse are also featured on "Total Divas," Along with the aforementioned Real World, Miz also participated in season four of WWE's Tough Enough show, which was a reduced version of the full-on reality show the program had in seasons prior. Five seasons of Real World/Road Rules challenge as a competitor, Battle of the Network Reality Stars, and The Challenge are also on his credits list.
