Style Network replaced by new Esquire Network

By Marie Blake,

TV's Style Network was replaced by the new male-savvy Esquire Network on Monday.

Due to the transition to the new network, many of the original series on Style are in need of a new home.

According to The Wrap, Tia & Tamera and Giuliana & Bill have already been picked up by E! and will start airing episodes Tuesdays in October. Series renewals for the two shows are still under consideration.

NBCUniversal is still deciding what other Style Network shows to move to other sister networks.

The new Esquire Network replaced Style this past Monday. The male-focused channel was previously announced to take over G4 Network in April, however, two weeks ago they decided to keep G4 and replace Style.

The Esquire Network focuses on travel, food, fashion and adventure, the New York Post reported.

Adam Stotsky told The Wrap that the new network will appeal to women as well as men.

"Certainly, we’re focused on establishing a decidedly masculine experience but it’s absolutely going to be a brand that’s very accessible and very welcoming to women along the way," Stotsky said. "We can turn to the readership of the magazine, which is on average 30 percent female," he added.

The new network will feature shows like Knife Fight, a cooking competition, Brew Dogs, which follows a pair of Scottish beer brewers, The Getaway, a celebrity travelogue featuring Aziz Ansari, Ryan Kwanten and Aisha Tyler, and Boundless, which follows 2 Canadian athletes.

"Outside of sports and news from our point of view, there really is no singular lifestyle destination that explores the wide range of interests that men have today," Stotsky said.

Shows from NBCUniversal's sister networks will also appear on Esquire.
