BRAVO ROLLS OUT ANOTHER DIVERSE ROUND OF DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS FOCUSING ON EXPERT AND RELATIONSHIP GENRES
NEW YORK – October 19, 2010 – Driven by innovative concepts and memorable characters that are leaders in their field, Bravo continues to unveil diverse new development that includes “LA Therapists” (working title), “Miss Advised” (working title), “The Proposal Planner” (working title), “The Headhuntress” (working title) and “What If” (working title). The announcement was made by Eli Lehrer, Vice President of Development for Bravo. Broadening the network’s development slate and building on the record-breaking success of watercooler series like “The Millionaire Matchmaker,” “The Rachel Zoe Project,” and “Flipping Out,” the new projects will offer viewers an inside look into the unique world of therapists, relationship experts and headhunters.
“Bravo’s continued success is driven by our ability to identify talent and concepts that appeal to our audience and their pop-culture lifestyle,” said Lehrer. “These projects continue to reflect the broad spectrum of new genres, tones and formats we are focused on developing driven by fascinating personalities who are tastemakers in their field.”
BRAVO SERIES IN DEVELOPMENT
L.A. THERAPISTS (working title): Centered on some of the top private practices in Los Angeles, “The Therapists” will follow the professional and personal lives of our dynamic experts as they counsel a wide array of patients. As we follow our therapists’ personal stories, we’ll see that just because they are professionally trained to treat other people’s problems doesn’t mean their own lives are immune from conflict and drama.
L.A. Therapists (working title) is executive produced by Kevin Dill and Mechelle Collins for Intuitive Entertainment.
MISS ADVISED (working title): This revealing documentary project follows three single relationship experts (a radio personality, a columnist and a blogger) on and off the job. In each episode, viewers will watch these women juggle their work and personal lives as they maneuver thru the dating world and discover whether or not they can practice what they preach.
Miss Advised (working title) is executive produced by Tom Forman, Ashley Tisdale and Jessica Rhoades for RelativityReal and Blondie Girl Productions.
THE PROPOSAL PLANNER (working title): Sarah Pease has a unique job helping wealthy men plan elaborate wedding proposals. From a moonlight picnic under the Eiffel Tower to a highly choreographed restaging of the moment the couple first met, Sarah’s spectacular proposals cost between 10 and 50 thousand dollars and take between a week to a month to carefully craft, create and coordinate. In each half hour episode, we’ll watch Sarah and her team make one couple’s dream come true culminating in a one-of-a-kind proposal to remember.
The Proposal Planner (working title) is executive produced by Michael Morrisey for Boy Wonder Productions.
THE HEADHUNTRESS (working title): This docu-project spotlights LA’s premiere corporate recruiter, Wendy Doulton, and her work in the fast paced and cutthroat world of headhunting. With one of the sharpest tongues in the business, this project follows Wendy and her staff as they try to keep up with the constant demands of her corporate clients and the private individuals she makes over for the job market. Survive a meeting with Wendy and you can survive an interview with just about anyone.
The Headhuntress (working title) is executive produced by Roy Bank, Ron Ward and Tracey Trench for Merv Griffin Entertainment.
WHAT IF (working title): Ever wonder about the one that got away and the roads not taken? By the time you are in your mid-thirties, there is a 76% chance that your future spouse is someone you have already met. Each episode follows a single woman in her thirties as she reconnects with the men from her past that she never quite got around to dating and finds out once and for all, “What If”?
What If (working title) is executive produced by Mark Koops and Howard Owens for Reveille.
