Looks like the Real Housewives will have EVEN MORE company next season!
Last week, we learned that the network would be renewing five of its top reality programs for the 2011-2012 season, and that they'd be picking up 11 new shows as well!
Now, Bravo has announced six more new projects, aside from all the shows already mentioned!
Here's what Bravo's vp of development and original programming Eli Lehrer had to say about it:
“We’re increasing our original production by 20 percent in 2011, which as you can imagine means we constantly need to keep our pipeline of new shows replenished."
“We have a couple of different scripted projects in development. It’s a world we’re dipping our toes into and we’re just looking for the right project.”
Wanna know more? Check out descriptions of the new projects as mentioned in The Hollywood Reporter AFTER THE JUMP!
– Women of Wall Street, from Renegade 83, will follow a group of five predictably beautiful, ambitious and successful women who make millions by day and swap stories over martinis by night. Lehrer says the network has been looking for its way into the high finance world for years but hadn’t found it until now.
– Gallery Girls, a docu-series from the Magical Elves, will take viewers inside the fashionable, demanding lives of six 20-somethings who work in Manhattan’s hippest art galleries. When the workday ends, the cameras follow the girls to the city’s hot bars, clubs and art scene functions.
– The Annabel Tollman Project, from Madwood Entertainment, will offer a behind-the-scenes look at the life of former Interview Magazine fashion director-turned-fashion journalist and celebrity stylist to Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Jessica Simpson and Scarlett Johansson, among others. In the Rachel Zoe vein, audiences will get a front row seat as Tollman dresses the a-list.
– Jason of Beverly Hills, from Authentic Entertainment, will focus on Beverly Hills’ top custom jeweler, Jason Arasheben, whose $20 million-a-year business has him dripping everything from rings to cars in diamonds.
– The Kristoffer Winters Project, a docu-series from Shed Media, will center on another house-flipper who can turn a $3 million home into an $8 million mansion.
– Face Down, produced by Lionsgate, is a scripted effort that centers on an irresistibly flawed make-up artist as he navigates through a world of demanding socialites, stars and politicians.
