LOS ANGELES, CA — Kim Gravel, one of the country's most successful and outspoken pageant coaches, is on a mission to find diamonds in the rough and transform them into confident young women in the all-new Lifetime docuseries "Kim of Queens," premiering Wednesday, January 1, 2014, at 10:00pm ET/PT. Subsequent episodes of the series will then air on Tuesdays at 10:00pm ET/PT, immediately following Lifetime's hit program "Dance Moms." Along with the help of her mother Jo and sister Allisyn, Kim lives to polish local girls into future leaders, able to take the crown and rule the world.

While applying her homegrown philosophy that beauty is only skin deep, Kim, with her larger-than-life personality that is peppered with tough love and plenty of humor, searches for young talent that many might pass over on first glance. As Kim likes to say, "You can wear a burlap sack, girl; but if you got it on the inside, it shines on the outside." At the young age of 16, this former self-proclaimed "ugly duckling" was crowned the youngest Miss Georgia in the pageant's history. Kim will be the first to say that winning Miss Georgia was great, but losing Miss America made her who she is today. Now, as the owner and CEO of her business, the renowned Pageant Place, Kim shares her incredible talents and over-the-top, engaging personality with the young, talented hopefuls seeking her sage advice that has proven to take young girls to the top.

"Kim of Queens" is produced by Relativity Television and executive produced by Tom Forman ("Extreme Makeover: Home Edition"), Brad Bishop and Bryan O'Donnell, along with Lifetime's Colleen Conway Grogan, Mary Donahue and Eli Lehrer.

A+E Networks will handle global sales for "Kim of Queens."
