Get excited Bravo junkies.
The network announced its second scripted series and a handful of spin-offs at Bravo Upfront on Tuesday, April 8, while also renewing 14 shows. "Top Chef," "Vanderpump Rules," "Below Deck" and "The Real Housewives" -- "... of Beverly Hills," "... of Atlanta," "... of New Jersey" -- represent just a few Bravo favorites returning next season.
The network's new scripted series lineup includes the semi-autobiographical comedy "Odd Mom Out" about the elite mothers of the Upper West Side, and the previously announced "Girlfriends' Guide To Divorce," starring Lisa Edelstein, Janeane Garofalo and Beau Garrett. As for spin-offs, expect to see "Top Chef" judge Tom Colicciho's "Best New Restaurant," which is like an American version of "Ramsay's Best Restaurant," and "Manzo's With Children," starring Caroline Manzo of "RHONJ" -- because you can never have too much cooking and or too many big Italian families.
Among the network's slate of new series: "Top Chef Duels" where two former "Top Chef" contestants go head-to-head in cooking challenges; "Game of Crowns," which takes pageant competitions to a whole new level with six wives fighting for the title; and "Ladies of London," essentially a Real Housewives of London.
Others include "100 Dates," a docu-drama, shot in real-time, about singles looking for love; "Untying the Knot," where couples seek divorce help and mediation; and "Extreme Guide to Parenting," which showcases varying degrees of parenting methods.
It's like Christmas for Bravo fanatics!
