Bravo Adds Five Digital Series to Online Slate (Exclusive)
The series will explore everything from luxury travel to relationship issues to the weekly drama on Bravo's reality TV slate.
Bravo is staying on brand with its new slate of digital series.
The cable network has greenlighted five new shortform web series that build off its schedule of housewives, million-dollar homes and celebrity news. Among its new series is The Upgrade, a series about luxury travel that will live on Bravo's Jet Set site, and a series called Bake Amends about saying "I'm sorry" in the form of an apology cake.
The projects come on the heels of a month in which the Bravo website reached a high of 27.6 million visits and 13.5 million unique visitors. Bravo's VOD platform has seen 45.3 million year-to-date views on set-top boxes.
"This marks another milestone in continuing our momentum in the digital storytelling space and in delivering fresh and compelling content for consumers," said Lisa Hsia, executive vp digital at Bravo and Oxygen Media.
Last year, Bravo launched its most ambitious digital project to date when it premiered its first stand-alone web series, Going Off the Menu, about finding hidden foodie experiences. Going Off the Menu recently returned for a second season with celebrity chef Graham Elliot as its host.
Here is Bravo's full digital slate:
