Reality star and entrepreneur Bethenny Frankel has inked an overall deal to develop and produce programming with Leftfield Entertainment through her newly launched company, B Real Productions (BRP).

The deal comes ahead of the December 3 premiere of the Frankel-exec produced FYI series Food Porn, which is produced by Leftfield-owned Loud TV.

Under the deal, the companies will develop and produce original projects related to Frankel’s interests in food and beverage, business, branding and lifestyle, among other genres. Their development slate includes other ‘porn’ titles such as Closet Porn and Cocktail Porn.

Leftfield Entertainment chief creative officer Adam Sher brokered the deal with Frankel and CAA.

“Bethenny’s super-human drive, innate sense of what can gain traction in the marketplace and in the media, and her amazing entrepreneurial spirit make her a true complement and fit for Leftfield,” Leftfield CEO Brent Montgomery┬ásaid in a statement.

Frankel has appeared in Bravo’s The Real Housewives of New York City and NBC’s The Apprentice: Martha Stewart. She is also a chef, author and the founder and CEO of the female-targeted lifestyle brand Skinnygirl.
