AOL announced the development of 16 shows for its premium video channel, the AOL On Network on Tuesday night, with projects involving LGBT icons Ellen DeGeneres and Laura Jane Grace.
Against Me! lead singer Laura Jane Grace stars in So Much More, a documentary series following Laura as she continues her journey, and tours in support of her latest record, Transgender Dysphoria Blues. The show features Laura's interactions with trans and other gender-variant people she meets along the way.
DeGeneres is an executive producer on Kevin Nealon's Laugh Lessons, a show featuring the former SNL and Weeds star as he takes on the challenge of teaching comedy to children.
Other shows announced feature James Franco, Zoe Saldana, Katie Holmes, Mike Epps, and Jeff Garlin.
AOL's NewFronts shows will air later this year on the AOL On Network.
