Bravo has put seven series into development, including a series starring Andy Cohen (pictured), a real estate competition, a game show and a social experiment based on a Scandinavian format.

The NBCUniversal-owned cable net’s development slate is led by Look Who’s Hosting Live, a series in which Watch What Happens: Live host Cohen gives celebrities an opportunity to host a late-night talk show for one night. The celeb will have to write a monologue, pick a sidekick and book guests. Embassy Row and Cohen’s Most Talkative are producing.

Million Dollar Listing franchise producers World of Wonder are developing two more series for Bravo.

Employee of the Month follows Million Dollar Listing New York realtor Ryan Serhant as he teams up with under-performing sales reps working in other fields to overhaul their ailing businesses, while Real Estate Wars focuses on two rival real estate agencies in Orange County who compete to sell the most properties in a six-month period.

Meanwhile, Original Media is working on a U.S. adaptation of the Scandinavian format Stripped. The social experiment series goes into people’s houses and strips them of all their belongings for 21 days to find out how their lives are impacted.

Embassy Row is also developing a fashion-related game show billed as “Double Dare meets Dolce & Gabbana and Wipeout meets Wang.” I’d Kill For That pits teams of friends, coworkers and family members against each other in a series of trivia and physical challenges to win a Birkin bag, Louboutin shoes and other luxury items.

In State of Affairs, infidelity expert Dr. Lisa Paz – who does not believe in monogamy – counsels couples dealing with marital strife with her unorthodox advice and beliefs. Fascination Street is producing.

Finally, SallyAnn Salsano’s 495 Productions is developing Invitation Only, a reality series in which one person invites a group of their close friends from different phases of their life to meet for the first time on a vacation.
