NEW YORK - April 6, 2011 - One week after announcing the pick up of an unprecedented 11 new series and five returning series, Bravo Media continues its momentum with the announcement of eight new series in development, including one scripted project.

"Our upcoming development slate builds on Bravo's commitment to develop a wide variety of programming that reflects the network's pop culture brand and showcases fascinating personalities who are experts at what they do," stated Eli Lehrer, Vice President of Development for Bravo. "Whether it's working in the high-end fashion industry or working on Wall Street, each of these shows portray exciting new characters and offer a glimpse into a world that will resonate with our audience."


"Face Down" (Scripted)

Produced by Lionsgate with Liz Sagal and Stephen Kay as creators and Co-Executive Producers

"Face Down" follows a charming and irresistibly flawed make-up artist as he navigates through a world of dodgy politicians, demanding stars, and privileged socialites, while dealing with a complicated ex-wife, wildly eccentric parents and a long overdue nervous breakdown. He's the last person his clients see before they face the masses and is privy to all of those not-so-pretty moments just before show time where the masks drop and the truth sits glaringly in front of them. This series explores how people reconcile between who they really are and who they want to be, providing a rare view of what's really behind those masks we all wear.

"The Annabel Tollman Project" (working title)

Produced by Madwood Entertainment with Michael Flutie as Executive Producer

Take a behind-the-scenes look at the life of former Interview Magazine Fashion Director turned fashion journalist and celebrity stylist Annabel Tollman as she styles some of the hottest celebs on the planet. From Scarlett Johannson and Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen to Mariah Carey and Jessica Simpson, Annabel's client roster includes some of the most photographed and trend-setting women in the world and it's her job to make sure they look their best at all times.

"Untitled Decades Project"

Produced by True Entertainment with Glenda Hersh, Steven Weinstock and Matt Hanna as Executive Producers

The cavernous closets of A-List actresses, models, socialites and royalty hold millions of dollars worth of couture- and there are only two guys in the world with access to those treasures. Cameron Silver and Christos Garkinos operate Decades and decadestwo.1, the world's premiere modern and vintage couture boutiques. From their headquarters in Beverly Hills, they sell previously owned couture at cutthroat prices and split the proceeds 50/50 with their wealthy consignors. Every piece goes on an incredible journey, but only if Cameron and Christos can tear it away from the woman who wore it first. The world of vintage fashion is a minefield, but it can also be a gold mine if you've got the right touch.

"Gallery Girls"

Produced by Magical Elves with Dan Cutforth and Jane Lipsitz as Executive Producers

Gallery Girls is a docu-series following the lives of 6 young, 20-something women that work in New York City's hippest art galleries. By day they juggle the stresses of their demanding bosses, maneuver through the complicated world they find themselves in and struggle to figure out how to get ahead in a business with so few opportunities to rise up the ranks. By night they are out at the hippest clubs, bars and art scene functions as they juggle their personal friendships, romantic relationships and art world acquaintances. For all these girls, their love for NYC is unwavering but their footing in the art world is anything but solid. Is this what they really want? Will they be able to survive in this business?

"Jason of Beverly Hills"

Produced by Authentic Entertainment with Lauren Lexton and Tom Rogan serving as Executive Producers

Cartier, Tiffany's, Harry Winston - that's old school. When today's biggest stars need big-ticket jewelry, they go to Jason Arasheben, Beverly Hills top custom jewler. What began as a dream on the campus of UCLA has grown into the city's premiere high-end jewelry boutique, a $20,000,000-a-year business. This docu-series follows Jason and his team as they cater to trendsetters who don't mind spending six figures on a diamond-covered Hot Wheels car or a syringe-shaped ring filled with rubies. When money is no object, if a client can dream it - Jason and his team can drip it in diamonds.

"The Kristoffer Winters Project" (working title)

Produced by Shed Media with Nick Emmerson, Jennifer O'Connell, Alex Demyanenko and Sean Rankine serving as Executive Producers

To call him a house-flipper doesn't quite do him justice. Kristoffer Winters takes $3 million houses and turns them into $8 million homes. The houses he "flips" are generally quite impressive to begin with, but when Winters is finished, they are truly magnificent. This new docu-series follows Winters as he makes these astonishing transformations from start to finish.

"Women of Wall Street"

Produced by Renegade 83 with David Garfinkle, Jay Renfroe and Diane Warshay serving as Executive Producers

The financial sector is often considered "a man's world", but there is a strong group of women who have not only made inroads to the boardrooms of Wall Street, they've done it on their own terms. This docu-series follows the daily lives of five beautiful, successful, and ambitious women who deal in millions in the marketplace, invest in new businesses, and hang with billionaires, and at the end of the day all come together at high-end watering holes for some martinis to swap war stories. Wall Street's "Boy's Club' has some fierce competition.

"The Wedding Planner"(working title)

Produced by SuperDelicious with Cara Tapper, Joanna Vernetti and Adam Cohen serving as Executive Producers

Forget everything you know about weddings and make way for the radical, outrageous and fantastically hip Kristin Banta. She's the larger than life wedding planner who's out-of-the-box style is revolutionizing the way couples look at their special day. No matter how big or small the budget, Kristin and her zany crew are taking risks, dumping every old school tradition and replacing them w/ unexpected elements that bring out the bride and groom, making their wedding all about them...whether they're ready for it or not. She's planning weddings like you've never seen, and creating moments you'll never forget.
