A diverse slate of projects featuring high-powered female CEOs, New York’s personal trainers and a booming North Dakota town are among five unscripted series in development for Bravo Media.

Kicking off the U.S. cable network’s slate is the Loud TV-produced adventure reality series Crowd Control (working title), which will allow viewers to control the day-to-day living of an as-yet-unannounced host, whose decisions on things like what to eat and who to date will be controlled by the audiences. Meanwhile, Fempire (w/t) profiles female CEOs dominating their fields but struggling with personal lives.

Bravo has also signed on for All3Media America and Lime Pictures’ The Fit Club (w/t), which profiles New York’s hottest personal trainers and the competitive world of fitness training; the Wilshire Studios and Iron Ocean-made Last Chance (w/t), where two exes have the chance to rekindle their relationship over the course of a month; and the Leftfield Entertainment-produced Why Not, Minot? (w/t) on Minot, North Dakota, the home of a modern Gold Rush.

“Bravo is constantly developing projects to find the next big hit that resonates with our pop culture enthusiasts,” said Lara Spotts, senior VP of development for Bravo Media, in a statement. “From the resurgence of the fitness class craze to the raging debate around the word ‘bossy,’ to an explosion of wealth in a totally unexpected location, our new development slate taps into the latest trends in today’s zeitgeist.”
