Based in Los Angeles, Dees will develop original programming for U.S. cable net Bravo and serve as executive producer on the forthcoming reality series Thicker Than Water. She will report to Lara Spotts, VP of development for Bravo Media.

“Christy’s impeccable understanding of the Bravo brand coupled with her infectious passion for reality television have earned her a winning track record in her three year’s here,” said Spotts in a statement. “We can’t wait to see where Christy takes us as a VP.”

As director of development, Dees’ credits included Shahs of Sunset, Newlyweds: The First Year and Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis.
