Bravo has announced it has six new reality shows in development.
The working titles of Bravo's six potential new series are The Gold Coast, Heirs Of Palm Beach, Shop With Stella, Splitsville, Tone It Up, and Untitled Male Model Project.
"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 executive Eli Lehrer said.
The Gold Coast will feature a lively group of 20 or so girlfriends who represent the "Boomerang Generation" as they move back in and live with their parents on the Gold Coast of Long Island following their college graduations. The show is being produced by True Entertainment with Steven Weinstock and Glenda Hersh serving as executive producers.
Heirs Of Palm Beach will follow "privileged offspring that make up the center of this elite social scene where membership has its privileges and pitfalls," according to the network. The series is being produced by Pink Sneakers with Kimberly Cowin and John Ehrhard serving as executive producers.
Shop With Stella, which is being produced by Firehouse Productions and executive produced by Nanette Burstein, will chronicle three best friends and roommates as they attempt to deal with the business aspects of launching a promising start-up idea for a fashion website that could change the way women shop.
Splitsville will feature notable divorce lawyers fighting each other with millions of dollars on the line while trying to avoid the same personal issues their wealthy clients face. Splitsville is being produced by BASE Productions with Mickey Stern and John Brenkus serving as executive producers.
Tone It Up will follow two roommates and best friends who "become the unlikely 'it girls' of the fitness industry after launching their popular Tone It Up website," according to Bravo. The show is being produced by Fishbowl Worldwide Media with Vin Di Bona, Bruce Gersh, Susan Levison, Beth Greenwald, and Jen Colbert serving as executive producers.
Untitled Male Model Project, which is being produced by Done and Done Productions and executive produced by Adam DiVello, will chronicle successful male models as they try to take advantage of a high-paying profession before they're considered too old for the industry.
