Bravo Firms Development Trio


Bravo has a trio of new competition series, including an entry from Sarah Jessica Parker’s production  company and Magical Elves, in development.

American Artist (working title) is an hour-long show in which aspiring contemporary artists will square off in the worlds of sculpture, painting, photography and industrial design. The show comes Parker’s production company, Pretty Matches and Magical Elves.

Based on the British format and show of the same name, Fashion House features designers replicating the workings of the fashion business through a fashion house by designing an entire, cohesive line with the opportunity of having their line mass marketed.

Additionally, Bravo is looking at Top Chef: Masters, a spin-off of the Emmy-nominated Top Chef (Magical Elves) in which renowned cooks will face-off in weekly challenges.

“Bravo has enjoyed unprecedented and award-winning success by catering to our unique audience of the most educated, upscale and engaged viewers, and by creating high quality, creative originals around our five affinity groups,” said Bravo executive vice president and general manager Frances Berwick in a statement. “We've steadily increased our original programming from just one night three years ago, to four nights starting this Monday.”

The network also made second-season orders for Make Me A Supermodel and The Real Housewives of New York City, which boasts a new housewife: designer, model, author and fashion editor Kelly Bensimon. Also, the fifth season of Top Chef will be set in New York.

It also made a series pick up of Miami Social, which will follows connected young professionals making the South Beach scene.
