Four new, character-driven docudramas being developed by the revamped Bravo development team have been announced, with food, fashion and family taking center stage in the slate.
New series include Dean’s List (w/t), which features ‘Hollywood Hair Guy’ and former American Idol stylist Dean Banowetz. The series, exec produced by Scott Stone for Stone & Co. Entertainment and Adam Rosenblatt, Christian Horner, and Jamie Rosenblatt for H2R Entertainment, follows Banowetz as he builds his brand one hairstyle at a time in Hollywood.
The Chris March Project (w/t) follows celebrity fashion designer and Project Runway alum March and his team as they create bold new designs for an A-list clientele that includes such luminaries as Madonna and Meryl Streep. It’s exec produced by Matt Westmore and Noah Scheinmann for Matt Westmore Media and No Regrets Entertainment.
Roblé & Co (w/t) documents the day-to-day of chef Roblé Ali as he moves from the restaurant world to the catering business, running his new company and putting together menus for world-class events out of his Brooklyn loft. The series is executive produced by Peter Franchella, Aaron Rothman, and Al Szymanski for Red Line Films.
Thicker than Water (w/t) will provide a window into the lives of a close, multi-generational family, capturing the highs and lows of the interrelations between brothers, sisters, spouses and offspring. It’s executive produced by Kimberly Cowin and John Ehrhard for Pink Sneakers.
‘Our diverse new development slate reflects Bravo’s continual commitment to develop and showcase a wide range of creative content, and these docudramas feature fascinating individuals whose lives we think will resonate with our audience,’ said Eli Lehrer (pictured), VP of development for the NBC Universal-owned Bravo. ‘I am extremely excited about our new projects that will allow us to continue to evolve and reinforce Bravo’s pop culture brand with more watercooler hits.’
