BRAVO EXPANDS ITS ARTS AND CULTURE SLATE WITH NEW DEVELOPMENT

In A New Genre, Bravo Develops Topical Series "Fashionality"

Network Unveils "Celebrity Sew-Off," "Double Exposure," "Polo" And "The Dubai Project"

NEW YORK � October 30, 2008 � Today, Bravo announced the development of five shows expanding the network's arts and culture slate with some new global players � the topical series "Fashionality," the creative competition series "Celebrity Sew-Off," and the docu-series "Double Exposure," "Polo," and "The Dubai Project," all working titles. The announcements were made by Frances Berwick, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Bravo Media.

"In the past year, we've increased our programming hours by almost 50 percent giving Bravo's highly engaged viewers our trademark line-up of talented, creative and culturally relevant lifestyles and personalities," said Berwick. "With our broad slate of new development, we continue to pull back the curtain on creative endeavors and different cultures."

In a new genre for Bravo, "Fashionality" (working title) is a weekly one-hour series, featuring four eclectic New York tastemakers from the worlds of media and fashion, who explore the intersection of all things pop culture and fashion via field pieces, roundtable debates, interviews and a thorough dissection of any and all things stylish and glamorous. From the latest in high fashion to animated debates on the week's red carpet outfits, and with segments like "Bravo Buzz" that explore style trends on the channel, viewers will never look at clothes the same way again. "Fashionality" is produced by Embassy Row and Superb Entertainment for Bravo. Michael Davies, Meryl Poster and Michael Rourke serve as executive producers.

On "Celebrity Sew-Off" (working title), celebrities will design, cut and stitch their way through a one-of-a-kind creative competition to determine who has the vision to go from icon to fashion star, and launch a trendsetting clothing label. The celebrity contestants will each be paired with an industry expert, who will supply the technical know-how to implement the celebrity's creative vision. "Celebrity Sew-Off" is produced by Lake Paradise Entertainment for Bravo. Holly M. Wofford ("Shear Genius," "Supernanny") and Viki Cacciatore ("Survivor") serve as executive producers.

"Double Exposure" (working title) is a docu-series that follows renowned art and fashion photographer Markus Klinko and his partner and former girlfriend, photographer and model Indrani, giving viewers a taste of the fast-paced world of high fashion and celebrity photography. From album covers for Davie Bowie and Beyonce to prize-winning photographs of celebrities like Lindsay Lohan and Kate Winslet, the duo has shot virtually every contemporary boldface name and countless other iconic images for fashion campaigns and magazines. With two former lovers working together 18 hours a day in incredibly high-stress environments, filled with deadlines, stretched budgets, expensive locations and demanding talent, it's not unusual for sparks to fly both on camera and outside the frame. "Double Exposure" is produced by Juma Entertainment for Bravo. Bob Horowitz and Lewis Fenton serve as executive producers.

"Polo" (working title) is a docu-series that dives into the glamorous and competitive lives of the world's most accomplished polo players, as well as their beautiful wives and girlfriends. Viewers will follow these compelling, sexy stars of history's most exclusive sport as they balance love, family history, money and the constant pressure to be the best, on and off the field. As the seasons change, this small family of players and their other halves move around the world in packs following the sport. "Polo" is produced by Granada USA for Bravo. Paul Bucceieri, Brian Zagorski and Riaz Patel serve as executive producers.

"The Dubai Project" (working title) welcomes viewers to the fastest-growing city on earth, a place that is literally rising out of the desert and surrounding sea, with its man-made beaches, thriving culture, businesses and nightlife. The docu-series follows a group of American and British ex-pats and their entourages in Dubai, as they make an indelible mark on this emirate and navigate this unique environment to pursue the "American Dream" in the center of the Middle East. "The Dubai Project" is produced by World of Wonder for Bravo. Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey ("Million Dollar Listing") serve as executive producers.
