NBCUniversal-owned cable net Bravo Media has bolstered its line-up with six unscripted commissions from the likes of World of Wonder Productions, Most Talkative Productions and Evolution Media.

The tentatively titled Relative Success with Tabatha Coffey from Lime Pictures and All3Media America features the Australian salon owner and television personality (pictured) as she helps family-owned businesses through turbulent times by separating business affairs from relationships and doling out “no-nonsense tough love” to right the ship. Greg Lipstone, Kate Little, Derek McLean, Phil Harris and Paul Osborne serve as executive producers on the series.

JV Productions’ Yours, Mine or Ours features real estate agent Reza Farahan and interior designer Taylor Spellman competing to convince couples ready to transition into cohabitation to either keep their Spellman-redesigned home, or relocate to a new property to call their own. Executive producers include Courtney Campbell, Kirk Hipkiss and Ryan Seacrest.

Meanwhile, World of Wonder Productions and Most Talkative Productions are behind the nostalgia series Then & Now with Andy Cohen, which will find the TV host and an informed panel of pop culture contributors examining a defining year in recent history and dissecting the biggest news stories, pop culture moments and trends. The program previously aired as a three-part series on Bravo in December. Fenton Bailey, Randy Barbato, Tom Campbell and Andy Cohen are listed as executive producers.

Summer House (working title) from Left Hook Media and True Entertainment will follow a group of friends living the high-end lifestyle as they spend their weekends partying at one of the most exclusive beach areas on the East Coast. Left Hook’s Matt Odgers and Scott Teti serve as executive producers alongside True’s Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin, and Noah Samton. Sean Clifford also serves as executive producer.

Elsewhere, Evolution Media’s half-hour reality series Oklahoma City (w/t) will shadow a set of women challenging the conventions of conservative society by showing an alternative side to the elegance of Oklahoma City. Douglas Ross and Alex Baskin serve as executive producers alongside Brian McCarthy.

Finally, The Lodge (w/t) from Tricon Films & Television shadows the working lodge staff at an “ultra-luxurious” Whistler-area ski resort. The series will follow lodge employees as they cater to the whims of the wealthy vacationing clientele, from heli-skiing adventures to white water rafting and dining at exclusive restaurants, while navigating resort hierarchy and the romantic interests of colleagues. Executive producers are Andrea Gorfolova, Jameel Bharmal, Jeff Hevert and Bruce Toms.
