Bravo’s development slate now includes Kara (working title), a docu-series following songwriter Kara DioGuardi, who can also be seen as head judge in the upcoming Bravo competition series, Platinum Hit.

Kara is a docu-series taking the viewers behind the scenes of the music business by following DioGuardi, a multi-platinum selling songwriter, producer, record executive and former American Idol judge.

The series is produced by World of Wonder and Arthouse Entertainment with Randy Barbato, Fenton Bailey and Tom Campbell serving as executive producers for World of Wonder and Kara DioGuardi and Stephen Finfer serving as executive producers for Arthouse.

Kara is the perfect addition to our latest development slate,” stated Eli Lehrer, VP of development for Bravo. “People have one perception of DioGuardi, but this series will peek behind the curtain and reveal much more interesting and multi-faceted aspects of this incredibly successful, talented artist and business woman.”

“I am excited to broaden my relationship with Bravo” stated DioGuardi. “I am a fan of the network and appreciate how their programming gives the audience a birdseye view into different industries and really uncovers what makes people tick.”

Elsewhere on Bravo, Platinum Hit premieres on May 30 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The songwriter competition will give twelve musicians the chance to win a $100,000 cash prize, publishing deal with Sony and BMI Songwriters, The Writing Camp, and a recording deal with RCA/Jive. DioGuardi will be joined by Jewel who hosts the series. Guest judges include Leona Lewis, Natasha Bedingfield, Donna Summer, Jermaine Dupri, Taio Cruz and Ryan Tedder.
