Shari Levine (pictured), Bravo’s senior VP of current production, has been promoted to exec VP in the same division, effectively immediately.

In her elevated position, Levine will oversee the network’s original programming.

“Shari is one of the creative visionaries behind many of Bravo’s hit series,” said Jerry Leo, exec VP of program strategy at Bravo and Oxygen Media and Production Bravo Media, in a statement. “Our shows have a Bravo sheen, which is due to Shari’s passion and dedication in making high quality original programming.”

Levine is responsible for The Real Housewives and Million Dollar Listing reality franchises. Under her supervision, season six of The Real Housewives of Atlanta delivered more than 4.6 million viewers, and Million Dollar Listing New York earned an Emmy nomination.

Levine has also launched the series Below Deck; Don’t Be Tardy; Married to Medicine; Shah’s of Sunset; Newlyweds: The First Year; Blood, Sweat & Heels; Southern Charm; and Vanderpump Rules. With Levine’s programming acumen, Bravo has increased its original programming slate to include more than 550 hours.
