Oxygen Media has ordered what they're describing as a "daring" (according to their press release) new 1-Hour special titled All My Babies' Mamas, which will premiere next spring.

The project will center on the complicated lives of one man, his many women, and their many children. 

Further... the series which comes from creative duo Liz Gateley and Tony DiSanto of DiGa Vision...

... will capture the highs and lows of this extreme 'blended family' that is anything but ordinary, while also showing the drama and the passion behind life's most unexpected situations.

In addition, Cori Abraham, Senior Vice President of Development at Oxygen Media, says:

"'All My Babies' Mamas' will be filled with outrageous and authentic over-the-top moments that our young, diverse female audience can tweet and gossip about."

Seemingly promising drama-filled entertainment, showcasing the humor, heart and dysfunction of it all, the press release doesn't make any race or culture-specific statements that tell us anything about the background of the man, or his many women and children. To be blunt, it doesn't say whether All My Babies' Mamas will star black people. But, of course, given the title, and the many jokes, as well as realities I think we're all familiar with, I, like you, probably immediately thought that the characters likely will be of African descent.

So I did a little digging to either confirm or negate my assumptions, and, while I can't say that I'm 100% certain that this will center on a black man and his families, I feel fairly confident that it will. Primarily because I found the below video on Vimeo, registered to a DiGa Vision as the account holder - DiGa Vision also being the name of the production company behind the above Oxygen upcoming special. 

And as you can see, based on the title of the video, as well as what you'll find in the content of the video, this is likely a preview/promo/pitch of what they sold to Oxygen... unless something's changed in the last 2 months (Vimeo says the video was uploaded 2 months ago).

In short, ATL-based rapper Carlos "Shawty LoWalker is our "man," with 10 "baby mamas," and 11 kids... and, oh, by the way, a new girlfriend who is the same age as his oldest children.

Something tells me this video will disappear soon after I post this entry, so if you click here and it's gone, you'll know why.

  • PimpsUpHoesDown | January 5, 2013 5:52 PMReply

    This show is absolutely brilliant. Too many people want to disguise the black community and pretend that we are white. This show is about our culture. Like it or dislike it, this is how we live. We black men have an insatiable desire for women. Why should we supress our natural animalistic desires. The Majority of our women are not offended by our lifestyle, only those who have been brainwashed by other cultures. We are from Africa where for thousands of years our practice has been to be with many women and father as much children as possible. It's the womans job to tend to the children. Embrace our culture, do not disgrace.

  • Bossman | January 6, 2013 4:46 AM

    And it's they goverments jobs to pays for thems all. I want free! I ain't taken care of nothing. I don't care if my children grow up to be financial slaves to they white man. As long as I get mine right now, I don't care about nothing else. I don't care if all my children become life long customers of they drug dealers. I am not going to be there to guide them away from a lifetime of slavery to drugs. I'm going to be proud looking at my children being dope heads and hoes. And they ain't no way I'm gonna spend one dollar toward they edjucation. The only school they get is Free or the Street. I ain't spended no money on them when I can get new shoes and rims for my ride. You must be crazy.

  • getthesenets | January 5, 2013 6:32 PM

    please crawl back into a hole with this nonsense---and speak for YOURSELF---and show me some African ethnic groups that practiced polygamy PRE-Islam.- since we are from "Africa" and "our practice" singular is to "be with many women and father as many children as possible"------people haven't used THAT excuse for a lack of SELF-control since the Sharazad Ali era of the 1990s---this show is about lowlife culture NOT Black,African,African American culture----only difference between Shawty Lo and 99% of the cases like this is that none of the women or children seem to be on public assistance...promote this nonsense as part of our cultural heritage if you want but it's bull and creates generations of neo-slaves

    All My Babies Mama's. ------ We don't want it and we don't need it. There is enough drama in our african american vortex that make it more difficult to live a normal life. Our children are confused enough. And worst of all; The mothers and fathers should think of whats best for the good of there children. Hurting is what they are doing and expoiting them to the world will be turn into a nightmare later on them. Be the responsible person. Put your love ones first and keep the media out your lives. We as a people should know better. After all you don't history repeating itself through your kids now do you. You don't want them to began thinking the words were we mistakes from careless emotion in-stead of love. Remember LOVE IS WHAT WE TELL THEM EVERY DAY WE SEE THERE FACES.

I am so tired of my AA women with low self esteem, 'I need a man, doesnt matter if he is a piece of a man', and/or looking for child support sleeping with these rappers, athletes, etc with no regard for the high HIV rates in our community.

    Why don't these stations cast other races in trashy stereotypical shows???

    Please boycott this show!!!!

  • Judy | December 29, 2012 9:17 PMReply

    Great! Make all the African American babies POSSIBLE. With 500 African Americans murdered in Chicago in one year; evil people like Zimmerman and Dunn that cruelly murdered two 17 year old African American youths for just being Black and Beautiful; plus the numerous murders of African Americans by racist police and other bigots, soon African Americans will be as extinct as Dinosaurs. If America can welcome illegal aliens that circumvent the legal system for citizenship and provide free school, medical benefits, food stamps, welfare, etc. at the expense of taxpayers, then I say keep up the good work Mr. Carlos "Shawty Lo" Walker. The more babies the merrier. At least the rapper can afford to take care of the African American kids he's bought in this world. Lifetime made a movie about a group of white teenagers that agreed to get pregnant at the same time. Society was okay with THAT! The NO-TALENT Kim Kardashian made over $40 million. So, why criticize Mr. Shawty Lo for having 10 baby mamas and 11 children? For those that are complaining, did you criticize the white pregnant teenagers, talentless Kim kardashian, stupid shows like the Bachelors, etc. Please stop the double standard. Why shouldn't Mr. Shawty Lo and his families get paid by the Oxygen Network? I'm sure Lifetime paid did the white teenagers that chose to have babies out of wedlock. So I am elated that there are 11 more beautiful African Americans in the world. Thank you Oxygen for giving African Americans jobs. Thank you Mr. Shawty Lo, I appreciate you. I pray all your children are healthy and become successful like their father. Hopefully, there is a workable mutually respectful relationship with the mamas and children.

  • Ghost | December 30, 2012 3:13 PM

    So, why criticize Mr. Shawty Lo for having 10 baby mamas and 11 children?----------------------Because when this type of behavior becomes the only images most of this country sees of us-it's an issue. It's an issue for every black person that doesn't act like this yet suffers because of it. How many jobs, college scholarships and other stuff have we lost because someone fears that we will act like Shawty Lo and the other attention whores? I'm tired of folks screaming at least the show puts blacks to work excuse. Sorry but we were already working before this show and will be working after it gets axed. Don't assume because it's a black show only black folks are working on it. There are PLENTY of blacks that work on white shows. As for white folks-why would I care about them? For every negative white show there are positive white shows. Our issue is we have nothing to counter the negative images that keep getting on tv.

  • sergio | December 29, 2012 10:01 PM

    Judy I take it that you know Dondiva. As for Kimmy Kakes. those white pregnant teenagers and the like, why are you so concerned about destructive white people's behavior? I've always hated that "if white people are debauched, why can't we too?" moronic line of reasoning. We need to seriously get our act together. Like someone once told me many years ago that, "white people are on a first class train going straight to hell and we running up behind it trying to jump on board". Judy aren't you tired of running?

  • Sabrina | December 27, 2012 3:48 PMReply

    EMAILED TO OXYGEN:

    Dear Oxygen Media,


    You have lost your way. When you launched you claimed that you were a network dedicated to inspire women. Over the past few seasons, you have done the exact opposite. While claiming to be a network for Gen O Girls to Live Out Loud you have dug into the bottom of the societal dump and green lit a show with Shawty Lo and the mother of his children. Your working title "All My Babies Mommas" does not even give the children involved the dignity that they deserve....you have only consigned to have them witness the degrading behavior of their 'parents'.


    Thus, our national group of outraged and concerned female and male viewers and parents will encourage our members to demand that this abusive 'show' never airs including:


    1) Boycotting your advertisers

    2) Boycotting your network and partners

    3) Urge our cable provider to cancel Oxygen


    Instead of providing entertainment which provides 'oxygen' for women and their children, what you clearly intend to do is suffocate them. We respectfully request a prompt response to our concerns by December 31st.


    Sincere Regards,


    Sabrina Lamb

Liz is also a founding partner and co-owner, along with Tony DiSanto, of DiGa, a studio and production company hybrid. In what Liz describes as her “dream job,” she is responsible for leading the development of ground-breaking new weekly and daily series for the channel including both scripted and reality projects.

    Ms. Gateley is probably best known for creating the game-changing hit reality series, Laguna Beach, inspired by her childhood growing up in Palos Verdes, California. It was the first thing she pitched at MTV back in 2003, the summer in which she started, and she went on to serve as Executive Producer of that series. Her next creation was 8th & Ocean, which also went on to become a hit series for MTV. Since then, she has developed a diverse slate of hits series for the network, which most recently included Teen Mom and 16 and Pregnant, on which she also served as executive producer. Ms. Gateley has successfully expanded MTV programming to include hit shows such as The Hills, Randy Jackson Presents America’s Next Best Dance Crew, The Buried Life, Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory, Nitro Circus, The City, Human Giant and Run’s House as well as the revealing 2009 documentary, Britney Spears: For the Record which kicked off Britney’s comeback.

    High profile projects in development under Ms. Gateley’s guidance include the series “Teen Wolf,” a thriller reinvention of the 1985 blockbuster film, and the critically acclaimed British hit series, “Skins.” Recent projects include two scripted comedy series, The Hard Times Of RJ Berger and Warren The Ape which aired in June 2010.

    Prior to MTV, Ms. Gateley worked at Lifetime Television where she was responsible for the development of primetime and daytime scripted and reality original series and specials, including Strong Medicine, The Division, Intimate Portrait, and Weddings of a Lifetime. Before Lifetime, Liz got her first shot in the entertainment industry while working at William Morris Agency in their agent trainee program. Liz is also an attorney who practiced corporate law.

    She graduated from Loyola Law School with a J.D. degree after earning a B. A. in Economics/Business from University of California, Los Angeles.

    Gateley reports to Tony DiSanto, President of Programming, MTV, and is based in New York City.

    DiSanto began his career as an intern at MTV.[3][8] He graduated to directing commercial spots, music videos, and electronic press kits for bands. By 2003, as Head of Production, DiSanto was supervising special events as well as creating and executive producing shows. DiSanto's early efforts include creating Say What?

    This IS a an unacceptable embarrassment to the black community, not to mention for women in general. We need to STOP acting like this - and we for damn sure need to STOP acting like this IN PUBLIC. We need to stop condoning this type of behavior with our financial support AND/OR with our silence.

    We complain about white people treating us like we are all lazy and ignorant and violent and on welfare and constantly out there making babies, etc... BUT THAT IS ALL THAT THEY SEE IN THE MEDIA. And we the black community continue to pour our money into supporting the very idiots (like this moron, and Chris Brown, OJ, pretty much the entire NBA....) who constantly throw us under the bus. The media-driven minstrel show needs. to. stop!!!!

    Find the statistics of black single mothers and realize that if they didn't have children most of them would be completely alone in life and their existence would have meant much of nothing other than they were a good employee they are survived by their cat or dog.

    Yet older generations did nothing to keep this from happening. They brought drugs and alcohol into our homes yet the kids of these families are to blame. Bothe sets of my grandparents divorced in the 50s. Bothe great grandfathers had multiple families at the same time. I haven't got any self hating woman pregnant but my generation than a bunch of illiterate manual laborers.

    Just watched the video. GHETTO! Obviously, he is in need of money, 'cause this is why people do "reality" for an easy check. This generation is horrible! GHETTO!!!! Embarrassing!

    (deep sigh)
    I guess Lil Wayne, Dwight Howard & Terrell Owens will be next in line for their spinoffs of this show....

    Misguided shots at Dwight and Terrell they shouldn't invoke your ire the same way as someone with 10 baby mothers or a rapper who made 3 in a year.

    good investigative work
    this show is meant to compete against/bite /copy one of the hip hop shows set in atlanta

    shawty lo is onetime rapper/one hit wonder based in ATL

    so it's not a coincidence that he was used in the pitch, or that it was ordered.

    if they have a theme song to the show based on the old school novelty record....it's over

    "who dat is? that's just my baby mama....that's just my baby mama...who dat is?

    lowest common denominator

    So a large portion of single black mothers in this country are the lowest common denominator and they don't deserve their stories to be told. What I sees 10 black women getting a check they wouldn't get other wise.

    They want to get their hands on some of that trashy reality tv money that Vh1 and E! are getting.

    I was thinking the same thing about VH1. But I think Love and Hip Hop Atlanta gave them all the ratchet they can handle ... I hope

    I'm wondering if a certain class of people are going to not complain about this film more so than a fictional film called Django Unchained.
