Bravo Media has promoted Shari Levine, most recently vice president of original programming, to the new position of senior vice president of production.

Levine, based in New York, will be responsible for the programming and production for all original series on the NBC Universal-owned cable net, and will oversee the network’s east and west coast production teams.

As VP of original programming, she was in charge of production for the docu-series The Real Housewives of Orange County which spawned a slew of successful spin-offs, as well as the Emmy-nominated Project Runway. Shear Genius, Make Me a Supermodel and Million Dollar Listing were also under her watch.

‘Shari is a key member of our team, and her editorial and storytelling skills are vital to Bravo’s success,’ said Bravo’s Andy Cohen, senior vice president of original programming and development, to whom Levine continues to report. ‘With proven hits like The Real Housewives of Orange County, I am confident she will continue to raise our production to new heights, and maintain Bravo ‘s reputation as the home of great unscripted TV.’

Levine came to Bravo with a background steeped in network news production, with stints at NBC News, ABC News and CBS News.
