 The Style Network invites viewers into the exciting adult lives of child stars Tia and Tamera Mowry in the all-new docu-series "Tia &Tamera Take 2." The girls will embark on big life changes - Tia is pregnant with her first child, and Tamera plans the wedding of her dreams. The network has ordered six episodes of "Tia & Tamera Take 2" to premiere in late summer.

Salaam Coleman Smith, president, The Style Network, made the announcement.

"Tia and Tamera are beloved child stars who have blossomed into fabulous women. The feedback from their special on Style last year was incredibly positive and showed us how much our viewers identify with these women, their humor and optimistic outlook on life and their daily journey to balance successful professional pursuits with their equally important personal and social lives," said Coleman Smith. "We are delighted to partner with the Mowrys again and to capture these next memorable chapters in their lives in a fun, positive and relatable way that is so characteristic of them."

Since starring in their hit '90s sitcom "Sister, Sister," these identical twins have bucked the teen star curse and have truly transformed into sophisticated, sexy, successful women. After graduating from the same university, they pursued separate acting roles while together forming their own production company. Today, Tia, the "practical one," enjoys living the suburban lifestyle with her husband, actor Cory Hardrict, whom she has been with for more than 13 years. Tamera, on the other hand, is spontaneous, easygoing and loves the nightlife. Dealing with each other's uniquely opposite characteristics can be a challenge for the both of them. However, through it all, they still remain the best of friends.

On "Tia & Tamera Take 2," the sisters discover that they need each other's support now more than ever because, at age 32, both are at a crossroads. While Tia has settled down with her husband and is anxiously expecting her first child, recently engaged Tamera is jumping headfirst into the planning of her own wedding. In addition to their hectic personal lives, the sisters enjoy demanding yet thriving careers, whether it's working on current productions or looking for the next project.

For Tia and Cory, their lives are turned upside down as they prepare for a new baby boy. Between parenting classes, endless doctors' appointments and registering for the baby shower, Tia's hands are full and the months are flying by. To top it off, she now has to set aside time to help her newly engaged sister and her wedding details.

Free-spirited Tamera, who's on again-off again boyfriend, Adam Housley, proposed to her in Italy last year, is ready to put her single days behind her. Tamera will rely heavily on Tia for help, but the combination of her goofy indecisiveness and her sister's practicality will surely wear their patience thin. And with a baby on the way, will Tia reach her breaking point?

About the Mowrys

Identical twins Tia and Tamera Mowry gained fame for their roles as teenage siblings on the sitcom "Sister, Sister." Once the series ended, they both attended Pepperdine University, graduating with degrees in psychology. Yet neither sister could give up acting.

Tia currently stars in the television comedy "The Game," playing the same character she created for the series "Girlfriends." In addition, she has starred in several made-for-television movies, including "Double Wedding," which reunited her with Tamera. Both sisters received NAACP nominations for Outstanding Actress in "Double Wedding." 

Tamera headlined two television shows, "Roommates" and "Strong Medicine," among other telepics.

"Tia & Tamera Take 2" is produced by Good Clean Fun. Executive Producer is Jason Carbone along with Style's executive producer, Sarah Weidman.
