From The Biggest Loser to One Big Happy Family and Dance Your Ass Off – weight-loss reality series are finding a huge (No Pun Intended) network of fans on the small screen.

Now even the Style Network is getting in on the action. The E! sister station — that’s more focused on Manolos and Louboutins than calorie intake and portion control — has greenlighted a docuseries about childhood obesity, titled Too Fat for 15: Fighting Back.

Inspired by a groundbreaking British documentary that aired on the BBC last year, the series revolves around four food-addicted teen girls, whose parents ship them off to Wellspring Academy — a weight-loss boarding school in North Carolina — for a lifestyle makeover.

The series will premiere in August.
