New York - August 19, 2013 - After recently being nominated for five Primetime Emmys(R), Bravo Media tapped award-winning producer Leslie Farrell and former Food Network executive Jeff Oliver as Vice Presidents of Current Production.

Farrell is also known for documentaries she created for HBO including "Sports on the Silver Screen," and "Journey of the African American Athlete," both highly successful award-winning films. She began her career at Blackside, Inc. in Boston, where she directed, wrote, and produced "Brother's Keeper" as part of the acclaimed national PBS series "America's War on Poverty." In subsequent years, she continued making films for PBS, including "The Challenge of Freedom," which aired nationally as part of WNET's landmark series "Slavery and the Making of America."

Jeff Oliver is a producer and former Food Network executive with credits that include "Big Brother," "Last Comic Standing" and "The Simple Life." At Food Network, Jeff oversaw some of the network's most successful shows, including "Cupcake Wars," "Worst Cooks In America," "Food Network Star," and "Chef Wanted With Anne Burrell." He also developed the series "Cutthroat Kitchen," as well as Cooking Channel's "The Freshman Class" and "The Culinary Adventures Of Baron Ambrosia." Prior to being at Food Network, Jeff was a freelance Supervising Producer in Los Angeles working with production companies that included Magical Elves, Bunim/Murray Productions, Ryan Seacrest Productions and World Of Wonder.
