Britney Spears and Kevin Federline’s baby doesn’t have a name, but it does have a due date. No, not that baby, their TV baby, the still-untitled reality show based on their home movies of their courtship and wedding. UPN announced that the show will debut on May 17 at 9 p.m. with a special one-hour episode. The six-part series mixes footage shot during the pair’s whirlwind engagement last spring and summer, culminating in their nuptials last September, with new commentary by the couple. Reruns will air on MTV, which is a cable sibling to UPN (both are Viacom outlets).

Airing as a companion series will be The Bad Girl’s Guide, Jenny McCarthy’s new sitcom. Debuting May 24 in the 9:30 timeslot following the Federlines’ show, the series will star the former Singled Out host as one of three sassy singles in Chicago. It’s inspired by the book series of the same name by Cameron Tuttle. Say, did Tuttle ever write a chapter advising sassy single gals to marry their backup dancers and bear them their first not-out-of-wedlock children?
