U.S. cable network Bravo Media is expanding its Real Housewives reality franchise to include two additional U.S. destinations throughout 2016.

Produced by True Entertainment, The Real Housewives of Potomac will follow the upscale lives of six well-to-do women in the gated mansion community of Potomac, Maryland. The Potomac cast will feature Gizelle Bryant, Katie Rost, Karen Huger, Charrisse Jackson-Jordan, Robyn Dixon, and Ashley Darby.

Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin, Lorraine Haughton-Lawson, Bianca Barnes-Williams, and Ashley McFarlin Buie serve as executive producers with Anne Swan as co-executive producer.

Meanwhile, The Real Housewives of Dallas, produced by Goodbye Pictures, will shadow an as-yet-unnamed cast of Southern socialites attempting to stake their claim at the top of the city’s social scene.

Rich Bye and Andrew Hoegl will exec produce alongside co-executive producers Samantha Billett, John Paparazzo and Adam Karpel.

Andy Cohen serves as an executive producer on both series.

The Real Housewives of Potomac premieres January 17 at 9 p.m. EST/PST on Bravo, while The Real Housewives of Dallas will air later next year.

The two reality series are the latest in the line of spin-offs hailing from Bravo’s original The Real Housewives of Orange County format, which includes series set in New York City, Beverly Hills, Atlanta, Miami and New Jersey in the U.S. and the recently announced Real Housewives of Cheshire in the UK. A Real Housewives of Vancouver aired in Canada.

The Real Housewives has become a global phenomenon that drives cultural conversation while consistently breaking ratings records,” said Shari Levine, exec VP of current production at Bravo Media, in a statement. “We’re happy to extend the franchise with Potomac and Dallas giving Bravo fans more of what they desire: stories of dynamic women who make us laugh, cry, cheer and experience unforgettable moments we can’t stop talking about.”
