Bravo Follows Upfront Orders With Six More Series in Development
The NBCUniversal-owned cable network, set to boost original programming by 27 percent, expands its development slate with new unscripted projects.
Just two weeks after announcing that its original programming would increase by 27 percent during the course of the coming television season, Bravo has expanded its development slate with six new projects.
Fitting into the network's expanding lifestyle portfolio of food, fashion, beauty, design and pop culture, there are also two new series planned for Bravo's recent venture into tech-related subjects. Shop With Stella (Firehouse Productions) and Tone It Up (Fishbowl Worldwide Media) follow women seeking success with fashion and fitness websites, respectively. (Huh, which follows the offices of icanhascheezburger.com, already has been ordered to series.)

Also on the slate are two series about a decidedly younger set for Bravo. The Long Island-set The Gold Coast (True Entertainment) is about twentysomethings moving back in with their parents, and Heirs of Palm Beach (Pink Sneakers) follows wealthy Florida children in an exclusive community.
More familiar to the current Bravo wheelhouse are Splitsville (BASE Productions), a divorce lawyer docudrama, and Untitled Male Model Project (Done and Done Productions).
“Bravo is moving full speed ahead to ramp up our diverse development slate and bring our highly engaged audience even more breakthrough original programming,” Bravo vp development Eli Lehrer said of the orders. “Our newly added digital passion point provides an expanded development filter for us to explore the innovative and fascinating digital world.”
All projects currently have working titles.
