Bravo made their big programming announcement this morning for their upcoming shows, and returning shows. Viola!
Shows that are returning are:
-THE FASHION SHOW 2 – Why?? I don’t know. The first season was atrocious. Let’s hope their new season is FILLED with BIG change…including their old Micky Mouse set. I see that they’ve changed the production company…so maybe that will help.
-MILLION DOLLAR LISTING 4 - I LOVE this show. I used to think it sucked, but I got roped in this past season, and now, I can’t get enough.
-REAL HOUSEWIVES OF ATLANTA 3 – I’m in heaven, need I say more?
-TABATHA’S SALON TAKEOVER 3 – I’m not totally into this show, but it’s not terrible by any means. I think Tabatha is a great TV character…so why not?
Their new series are:
-MIAMI SOCIAL CLUB (working title) – I’m actually excited about this show because I’m going to help produce it! Don’t let the title fool you, it’s not going to be anything like Miami Social. It’s going to be more about Miami’s elite social scene. Think a mix between Housewives, and Miami Social–but with LOUD characters.
-MILLION DOLLAR DECORATORS – The title says it all…it’s about high-end interior decorators.
-PREGNANT IN HEELS - About high-end maternity designer, Rosie Pope. The show will follow her as she coaches Manhattan’s rich expecting mothers.
-REAL HOUSEWIVES OF BEVERLY HILLS – no explanation needed here.
I’m posting their shows in development after the jump…
I’m just cutting and pasting the rest from the press release, because there’s just too much to write about for something that’s SOOO far away.
