BRAVO GREENLIGHTS NEW REALITY PILOT "TABATHA'S SALON TAKEOVER" FEATURING "SHEAR GENIUS" PERSONALITY TABATHA COFFEY
Pilot Follows The Australian Native As She Makes Over America One Salon At A Time
NEW YORK � January 7, 2008 � Bravo announced today that Tabatha Coffey, one of the charismatic stars of "Shear Genius," will star in the new reality pilot "Tabatha's Salon Takeover" (wt), as she hits the road to takeover and improve the state of American hair salons, one beauty shop at a time. In the series, the perfectly styled, sharp-tongued Australian native brings her no-nonsense approach to a salon in dire need of a makeover. With just a week to work her magic, can she put these salons back on their feet or is it simply time to put up the closed signs for good?
Viewers will get to see Tabatha's distinct personality as she casts her acerbic eye on the salons she chooses to visit. Viewers will meet the salon owner and his/her stylists and will follow Tabatha as she formulates her plans to takeover these salons, remake them and bring the shops and their staff into the 21st century.
Salon owners can apply to have their shops made over by visiting www.BravoTV.com/casting or by emailing their name, contact information and recent pictures of themselves and their salons to firstname.lastname@example.org.
