“Bethenny and Fredrik Property Project” (Working Title)
This new series follows two fan favorite powerhouses, Bethenny Frankel and Fredrik Eklund, as they come together in their new venture as real estate moguls and business partners. Viewers will watch as they tackle the ups and downs of scouting, buying and designing multimillion-dollar properties. The series shows a side of Bethenny and Fredrik, often through their humorous dynamic, that fans have never seen before as they make big flipping gambles in the hopes of even bigger payouts.
“Sell it Like Serhant”
It doesn’t matter what you’re selling–if you know your client and your product, a good salesman can sell anything to anyone. No one exemplifies this better than the leader of one of the top real estate teams in the U.S., Ryan Serhant (“Million Dollar Listing New York”). In this new series, Ryan puts his sales skills to the ultimate test when he answers the call of struggling sales representatives, desperate for his expertise. While Ryan learns the tricks of a particular trade, he will also give under-performing employees a head-to-toe business overhaul and turn them into sales machines.
This new series follows Charleston’s most eligible and loveable singleton, Shep Rose, as he ventures to various cities across the country in the hopes of finding true love and a committed relationship. Shep is a complicated bachelor, and the right match will have to effortlessly fit into his particular lifestyle which ranges from black tie galas to surfing with him in Costa Rica. As Shep leaves Charleston to look for “the one,” he calls upon his friends in various cities from New York to LA to help set him up with women in hopes that they are a perfect match.
“Southern Charm New Orleans”
The popular franchise heads to The Big Easy for “Southern Charm New Orleans,” offering viewers an exclusive glimpse into the sophisticated Creole culture of NOLA. Hidden away from the beads and beats of Bourbon Street is an exclusive community filled with wealth, legacy and tradition. Although the prestige in this town is plentiful, everything that glitters isn’t gold, and underneath brews a multitude of shocking secrets that could destroy the foundation of long-standing friendships. In a city where lineage and status are everything, how far will this ambitious group go to redefine their legacy and secure their spot at the top of this esteemed circle?
“Love Italian Style” (working title)
There’s a saying: “To live your best life, go where you are most celebrated.” For these African-American women, that place is Italy. In this series, relationship expert Diann Valentine takes five beautiful, eligible bachelorettes who can’t find a good American man, all the way to Italy, aka “Mecca,” where she breaks them down and builds them back up to be open to love. Sounds as sweet as gelato, but it’s not all gondola rides and delicious wine for these single ladies, who live under one roof in a decadent Roman villa, potentially vying for the same men and keeping one side eye on the ultimate prize: a hot Italian husband.
“A Night With My Ex”
What would you do if you had the chance to spend an entire night with your ex? Would you seek answers, try to gain closure, or make a play to get back together? For the first time since their split, ex-couples will be brought together for one night in a camera-rigged apartment with no crew. What they do or say during their night is completely up to them, but one thing is for sure: it will be surprising, emotionally raw, and in many cases, totally hilarious.
Bravo is really banking on their Million Dollar Listing guys, and seem to have a lot of faith in the Southern Charm premise; the Savannah edition of Southern Charm premieres in just a few weeks!
It looks like the fate of RHOP is riding on season 2, and it’s shocking how long they are waiting to premiere RHOD season 2; they finished filming months ago!
Everything the network has been working on sounds great and unique, but we’re ready for some new cities of The Real Housewives. This franchise put them on the map, so hopefully Bravo is scouting out the next city (or 5)!
