BRAVO SERIES IN DEVELOPMENT

“Face Down” (Scripted)

Produced by Lionsgate with Liz Sagal and Stephen Kay as creators and
Co-Executive Producers

“Face Down” follows a charming and irresistibly flawed
make-up artist as he navigates through a world of dodgy politicians, demanding
stars, and privileged socialites, while dealing with a complicated ex-wife,
wildly eccentric parents and a long overdue nervous breakdown. He's the
last person his clients see before they face the masses and is privy to all of
those not-so-pretty moments just before show time where the masks drop and the
truth sits glaringly in front of them. This series explores how people
reconcile between who they really are and who they want to be, providing a rare
view of what's really behind those masks we all wear.

“The Annabel Tollman Project” (working title)

Produced by Madwood Entertainment with Michael Flutie as
Executive Producer

Take a behind-the-scenes look at the life of
former Interview Magazine Fashion Director turned fashion journalist and
celebrity stylist Annabel Tollman as she styles some of the hottest celebs on
the planet. From Scarlett Johannson and Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen to
Mariah Carey and Jessica Simpson, Annabel's client roster includes some of
the most photographed and trend-setting women in the world and it's her
job to make sure they look their best at all times.

“Untitled Decades Project”

Produced by True
Entertainment with Glenda Hersh, Steven Weinstock and Matt Hanna as Executive
Producers

The cavernous closets of A-List
actresses, models, socialites and royalty hold millions of dollars worth of
couture— and there are only two guys in the world with access to those
treasures. Cameron Silver and Christos Garkinos operate Decades and
decadestwo.1, the world’s premiere modern and vintage couture boutiques. From
their headquarters in Beverly Hills, they sell previously owned couture at
cutthroat prices and split the proceeds 50/50 with their wealthy consignors.
Every piece goes on an incredible journey, but only if Cameron and Christos can
tear it away from the woman who wore it first. The world of vintage fashion is
a minefield, but it can also be a gold mine if you’ve got the right
Touch.


“Gallery
Girls”

Produced
by Magical Elves with Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz as Executive Producers

Gallery Girls is a docu-series following the lives of 6
young, 20-something women that work in New York City’s hippest art galleries.
By day they juggle the stresses of their demanding bosses, maneuver
through the complicated world they find themselves in and struggle to figure
out how to get ahead in a business with so few opportunities to rise up the
ranks. By night they are out at the hippest clubs, bars and art scene functions
as they juggle their personal friendships, romantic relationships and art world
acquaintances. For all these girls, their love for NYC is unwavering but their
footing in the art world is anything but solid. Is this what they really
want? Will they be able to survive in this business?

“Jason of Beverly Hills”

Produced
by Authentic Entertainment with Lauren Lexton and Tom Rogan serving as
Executive Producers

Cartier, Tiffany’s, Harry Winston – that’s old
school. When today’s biggest stars need big-ticket jewelry, they go to Jason
Arasheben, Beverly Hills top custom jeweler. What began as a dream on the campus
of UCLA has grown into the city’s premiere high-end jewelry boutique, a
$20,000,000-a-year business. This docu-series follows Jason and his team as
they cater to trendsetters who don’t mind spending six figures on a
diamond-covered Hot Wheels car or a syringe-shaped ring filled with rubies.
When money is no object, if a client can dream it – Jason and his team can drip
it in diamonds.

“The Kristoffer Winters Project” (working
title)

Produced by Shed Media with Nick Emmerson, Jennifer O'Connell, Alex Demyanenko and Sean Rankine
serving as Executive Producers

To call him a house-flipper doesn’t
quite do him justice. Kristoffer Winters takes $3 million houses and turns them
into $8 million homes. The houses he “flips” are generally quite impressive to
begin with, but when Winters is finished, they are truly magnificent. This new
docu-series follows Winters as he makes these astonishing transformations from
start to finish.

“Women of Wall Street”

Produced by Renegade 83 with
David Garfinkle, Jay Renfroe and Diane Warshay serving as Executive Producers

The financial
sector is often considered “a man’s world”, but there is a strong group of
women who have not only made inroads to the boardrooms of Wall Street, they’ve
done it on their own terms. This docu-series follows the daily lives of five
beautiful, successful, and ambitious women who deal in millions in the
marketplace, invest in new businesses, and hang with billionaires, and at the
end of the day all come together at high-end watering holes for some martinis
to swap war stories. Wall Street’s “Boy’s Club’ has some fierce
competition.

“The
Wedding Planner
(working title)

Produced by SuperDelicious with Cara Tapper, Joanna Vernetti and Adam
Cohen serving as Executive Producers

Forget everything you know about weddings and make way
for the radical, outrageous and fantastically hip Kristin Banta. She's the
larger than life wedding planner who's out-of-the-box style is revolutionizing
the way couples look at their special day. No matter how big or small the
budget, Kristin and her zany crew are taking risks, dumping every old
school tradition and replacing them w/ unexpected elements that
bring out the bride and groom, making their wedding all about
them...whether they're ready for it or not. She's planning weddings like you've
never seen, and creating moments you'll never forget.
