Tori Spelling will open a bed and breakfast on Oyxgen; Barenaked Ladies’ Ed Robertson will do odd jobs on OLN

Tori Spelling and her husband Dean McDermott will be followed by cameras for a new Oxygen reality series. The show will watch “as they choose a bed-and-breakfast in Southern California to buy and refurbish” and get ready for the birth of their baby, Variety reports.

Six episodes are being produced by World of Wonder, and the series will air this spring on Oxygen. Executive producer Randy Barbato says the two “may be actors, but they’re also very entrepreneurial. They want to create a real business.” In other words, they’re not just opening the bed and breakfast for TV.

Meanwhile, Canada’s OLN will air a series starring Barenaked Ladies frontman Ed Robertson. Ed’s Up debuts Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET, although apparently only on the Canadian version of the channel, not the US version, which is now called Versus.

During each episode, “Robertson, an avid recreational pilot, receives a set of GPS coordinates from a ‘mystery person’ … He then flies to the unknown location — some of which includes a tree-planting camp, ocean survival training, steel mill, navy training camp and a CFL practice with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats — and has to immediately get to work,” according to an OLN press release. Thirteen episodes will give the musician “a chance to prove to himself and the world that although he’s a pampered celebrity, he’s tough enough to work alongside some of this country’s unsung heroes.”
