We TV said it has seven shows in development that “underscore [its] commitment to spotlighting women who are bold and in charge of the world around them.”

Lauren Gellert, the AMC Networks women's outlet’s SVP of original production & development, said in a release: “We're extremely excited about our current development slate featuring programs about bold, powerful women who are unapologetic for the way they live their lives. The shows we are developing explore women's secret temptations, fantasies, and their exciting and fun adventures. Our goal is to create an environment women can call their own; closing the door to the outside world and indulging in some juicy entertainment.”

The development slate, aimed at possible 2013-14 debuts, includes:

Bedroom Confidential, described as “part docu-soap, part social experiment, featuring five female friends who allow cameras access to every aspect of their lives, including their bedrooms.”
