Velvet cable channel, the home of Hollywood drama and glamour celebrates true independent women as it features shows that cater to women of all types and ages. Ladies who are fans of documentaries and biopics will love Velvet's program line-up this June 2009, which features some of the most brilliant and most talked about women in Hollywood and in history.

If you're a fan of Britney Spears, you wouldn't want to miss this episode of E! True Hollywood Story on June 27 at 4:30 pm, where Britney's rise to fame is explained by friends, colleagues and the paparazzi that know her best. Their ever-present cameras document her controversial ups and downs, allowing the world to truly see what it's like to walk a mile in Britney's shoes. If you want more of the inside scoop on your favorite Hollywood celebrities, watch E! True Hollywood Story which will also feature stars like Renee Zellweger on June 6, the women of Sex and the City on June 13 and Charlize Theron on June 20.

Flickpick, the Saturday 10 pm movie block of Velvet, will showcase the Heather Graham starrer Cake on June 6. Very apt for all sexy and independent women, Cake revolves around free-spirited travel writer Pippa McGee (Graham) who unexpectedly becomes the editor-in-chief of a wedding magazine, a publication she'd least likely read. Pippa's growing attraction to a photographer also challenges her mistrust of commitment.

Velvet's movie block will also feature fact-based movies about Queen Victoria in the film Mrs. Brown on June 13 and Jean Harris in the film Mrs. Harris on June 27. Mrs. Brown is a true story of two people who defied convention, politics, and the rigid rules of royal life. Their story is a drama that took place behind high walls and palace windows—yet had a resonant effect on an entire country. On the other hand, Mrs. Harris is the story of a woman, Jean Harris, who was accused of murdering famed Dr. Herman Tarnower after being in a relationship with him for 14 years.

Judging Amy Season 2, premiering June 30 at 8:30pm, is based on the real-life story of lead actress Amy Brenneman's mother. The series tells about three generations of women living together as they confront the personal and professional dilemmas in their changing, challenging lives. In its second and more exciting season, Maxine spends time with Vincent when he is badly injured in an explosion, and Amy's relationship with Bruce comes under investigation. Catch more of the legal drama about attorney-turned-judge Amy Gray on Judging Amy Season 2.

Be inspired this month of June and let Velvet bring out the true woman in you with its new shows.

Velvet channel promises to offer the latest fashion trends, the most happening events and the best of Hollywood.
