MTV announced today that it will introduce a new programming block for Thursday nights which will premiere on Thursday, June 15th. The new line-up will feature the return of some of MTV′s hugely successful and highly anticipated series including MAKING THE BAND 3.
Now in its third season, the series continues to chronicle Sean "Diddy" Combs applying his "golden touch" as he works with the five girls he chose to be in his all new girl pop group. This season, watch as Aubrey, Aundrea, Wanita, Dawn and Shannon get used to being in the band, learn to work together, record their first album, prepare to go on tour and live in a brand new loft in New York City′s Soho. Diddy is guaranteed to put a whole bunch of new challenges to keep his elite group of ladies in line.
To get fans up to speed on all the happenings from last season there will be a 5 1/2 hour marathon on Saturday, June 10th beginning at 2:00pm. During the marathon viewers will be able to get, simultaneously, on MTV Overdrive, a preview of the new season, "Diddy Knows Best" segments, which will feature Diddy′s best quotes and show descriptions.
