Bravo has become synonymous with unscripted reality television that shows viewers that the lives of the rich and somewhat famous, are just as messy as ours. Now, the network has announced that it’s expanding its unscripted programming with six new shows and 18 returning series.
Deadline reports Southern Charm New Orleans, A Night With My Ex, and Love Italian Style are their new shows.
The latter will feature five eligible Black bachelorettes traveling around Italy looking for love. Bravo’s Southern Charm series will head to New Orleans for a glimpse of The Big Easy’s wealthiest inhabitants. A Night With My Ex will see ex-couples coming together for the first time since their split to spend the night in an apartment and hash things out.
Jerry Leo, EVP, Program Strategy, Lifestyle Networks and Production Bravo, said, “Our fans look to us for a very unique brand of top quality unscripted content they simply cannot get anywhere else.”
Adding, “With many established franchises showing strong ratings growth, we’re able to explore new frontiers, and we believe these new series are really going to resonate with our audience.”
Old favorites will be returning as well including The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Don’t Be Tardy, and Married to Medicine.
“We know that the Bravo audience is one of the most engaged, passionate groups out there,” said Laura Molen, Executive Vice President, Lifestyle and Hispanic Advertising Sales Group, NBCUniversal. “And we’re excited to work with clients to create authentic opportunities on their behalf.”
