NEW YORK – May 28, 2009 – You haven’t seen high school until you’ve seen it “NYC Prep” style. Bravo’s newest docu-series will premiere on Tuesday, June 23 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, preceded by “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” reunion special at 9 p.m. ET/PT. “NYC Prep” chronicles the lives of a group of privileged teenagers who are key players in Manhattan’s elite high school scene. Students who travel in packs – whether it’s on sophisticated vacations or to a townhouse for an exclusive midnight party, their lives intertwine as they network, shop, party, study, date and write college applications. Everyone’s beautiful and everyone’s connected.
In the first episode of “NYC Prep,” seniors Jessie and PC establish themselves as the King and Queen of the NYC prep school scene. Sharp and sassy, the pair cast a cruel eye on the rest of the city as they hit New York’s most exclusive spots. Since they used to be an item, Jessie gets tense every time PC looks for a new girl. Jessie isn’t quite sure if she wants to be with PC, but definitely doesn’t want anyone else to have him either! Camille is the prim and proper prep school junior, but is her obsession with Harvard killing her social life? Further uptown, prep school junior Kelli is living the dream with her own apartment in New York City, which means plenty of nights out. While dining with friends, Kelli runs into sophomore Sebastian who has a serious playboy reputation, and Kelli finds herself falling under his spell. Meanwhile, public school student Taylor enters the mix and sees Sebastian as her ticket into the tight knit prep school scene.
