"Bravo has never had a more aggressive line-up of original programming than we do this summer and this is an absolutely great way to kick it all off," said Lauren Zalaznick, President of Bravo. "The reinvigorated 'Queer Eye' continues to be the leader in a lineup that includes nine series launches over twelve weeks."
