Divorce lawyers, male models and Palm Beach’s social scene form the focus of some of the projects in development for U.S. cable network Bravo Media, which has also unveiled two digital-focused projects.

Details of the new shows come after the network recently announced it Upfront slate. Among the development titles, True Entertainment’s The Gold Coast (working title) is a character-driven series focusing on a group of twenty-something girlfriends who have moved back home after graduating from college to live with their parents on the Gold Coast of Long Island.

Also on the slate is Pink Sneakers’ Heirs of Palm Beach (w/t), which looks at some of the privileged offspring that make up Palm Beach’s social scene; Base Productions’ Splitsville (w/t), focusing on divorce lawyers; and an as-yet-untitled male model project, produced by Done and Done Productions.

Shop With Stella, from Firehouse Productions and executive producer Nanette Burstein, is one of the development projects focusing on the digital world. In the series, three friends launch a start-up idea for a fashion website; while Tone It Up from Fishbowl Worldwide Media looks at the “it girls” of the fitness industry who launched the Tone It Up website.

“Bravo is moving full speed ahead to ramp up our diverse development slate and bring our highly engaged audience even more breakthrough original programming,” said Eli Lehrer, VP of development for Bravo. “Our newly added Digital passion point provides an expanded development filter for us to explore the innovative and fascinating digital world.”
