Bravo Developing New Vehicles for Tabatha Coffey and 'Shahs' Star
Bravo is dipping back into its own talent pool for its latest round of unscripted development, which includes projects from Shear Genius contestant Tabatha Coffey and Shahs of Sunset star Reza Farahan.
“These three projects support the network's commitment to provide high-quality content and innovative formats that connect with our loyal upscale audience,” said Bravo Media senior vp development Lara Spotts. “We are continuing to diversify our slate by adding to our already ambitious original programming lin-up with fresh new areas and genres."
Should it go to series, Tabatha’s Life Takeover (working title) would be a third for staring series for Coffee. The reality star already has Tabatha's Salon Takeover and Tabatha Takes Over under her belt. This next project, from Morocco Junction Entertainment and All3Media America, would find her going outside the realm of business rescues to help individuals deal with personal obstacles like shopping addiction and marriage problems.
Farahan is already signed on to another season of the recently renewed Shahs, so this would be his second project at Bravo. Tentatively titled Yours, Mine or Ours, the JV Productions Inc. production would follow the real estate agent and interior designer Taylor Spellman help couples either transform their current homes or move into a new one.
A third project on the slate, also hailing from All3Media America with Lime Pictures, currently has no talent attached but focuses on family-owned operations with younger members of the clan in line to inherit the business. Heir Heads (working title) enlists savvy business experts to coach the heirs apparent before they earn a trial period as CEO.
Though the network continues to make moves in scripted — see the renewed Girlfriends Guide to Divorce or recent half-hour Odd Mom Out — reality remains Bravo's bread and butter. The network also renewed Vanderpump Rules earlier this week
