Bravo VP of development Cori Abraham (pictured) will be moving to sibling network Oxygen Media as SVP of development, reporting to former Bravo colleague and current Oxygen SVP of original programming and development Amy Introcaso-Davis.

At Bravo, Abraham executive produced such hits as two time Emmy-Award winner Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, and developed the upcoming The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Thintervention with Jackie Warner. She also developed the just-launched Bethenny Getting Married?, starring Real Housewives of New York City cast member Bethenny Frankel, which became the highest-rated series premiere in Bravo’s history.

In her new role, Abraham will oversee the network’s development on both coasts while based in Los Angeles.

‘Cori has outstanding relationships in the industry, a keen eye for talent and a gift for discovering breakthrough concepts,’ said Introcaso-Davis. ‘She has identified and developed watercooler content in a variety of genres and formats and we’re excited to have her join us as we continue to build the ‘Live Out Loud’ brand.’

Introcaso-Davis and Abraham worked together at Bravo for four years, beginning in 2004, when Abraham came on board as director of development. She was promoted to vice president, development in 2007, then became head of development in 2008.
