POWERED BY BREAKTHROUGH ORIGINAL PROGRAMMING BRAVO MEDIA UNVEILS FIVE NEW UNSCRIPTED PROJECTS IN DEVELOPMENT

NEW YORK - April 28, 2014 -Bravo Media continues its commitment to breakthrough original programming announcing several new unscripted series in their development slate. Showcasing a variety of genres and formats, the five new projects include "Fempire," following female CEO's dominating their field, "The Fit Club," tackling New York City's hottest trainers, "Why Not Minot?," exploring the unexpectedly wealthy area of Minot, North Dakota, "Last Chance" giving couples one last opportunity to make-it-work, and "Crowd Control" an ultimate choose-your-own-adventure reality series.

"Bravo is constantly developing projects to find the next big hit that resonates with our pop culture enthusiasts," said Lara Spotts, Senior Vice President of Development for Bravo Media. "From the resurgence of the fitness class craze to the raging debate around the word #bossy to an explosion of wealth in a totally unexpected location, our new development slate taps into the latest trends in today's zeitgeist."

Bravo Development Projects:

"Crowd Control" (working title)
Produced by LOUD TV with Nick Rigg and Brent Montgomery serving as Executive Producers.
The ultimate choose-your-own-adventure that puts one person's fate into the hands of opinionated viewers. Having to rely on social media interactions alone, the day-to-day living of our host will be completely dictated by the audience. Every real life decision put before our host, from what they eat to who they date to the job they take will be decided entirely by Bravo's highly engaged audience.

"Fempire" (working title)
Casting by Water Cooler Casting
These female CEOs know that making time for a cocktail and a date is sometimes their only salvation from the pressures and responsibility of growing a "Fempire" and commanding respect from the men who work beneath them. Business is personal for these women as they do whatever it takes to dominate their field and smash through the glass ceiling. Will they find happiness on the other side or have they compromised too much to get there?

"The Fit Club" (working title)
Produced by All3Media America and Lime Pictures with Stephen Lambert, Eli Holzman, Kate Little, Claire Poyser, Derek Mclean, Omid Kahangi and Jacob Cohen-Holmes serving as Executive Producers.
Today's modern day Greek Gods are better known as New York City's hottest trainers whose bodies are their billboards. Their client lists include some of Manhattan's elite, from billionaire investors to world famous celebrities. With highly active lives both in and out of the gym, this project chronicles their friendships, romances and feuds as they fight to stay on top of the ultra-competitive world of fitness training.

"Last Chance" (working title)
Produced by Wilshire Studios and Iron Ocean with Jessica Biel and Michelle Purple serving as Executive Producers.
Two exes have the ultimate opportunity to give their relationship one last chance through a series of social experiments over the course of 30 days. The couple will reunite and be pushed to their relationship limits under taxing scenarios - including returning to the scene of one their most difficult, uncomfortable and contentious times, playful events and emotional conversations to determine their fate once and for all. Will they re-kindle their romance or is their flame out for good?

"Why Not, Minot?" (working title)
Produced by Leftfield Entertainment with Brent Montgomery, David George and Will Nothacker serving as Executive Producers.
Minot, North Dakota is home of a modern day Gold Rush with individuals and families from all over the country flocking to this unexpectedly wealthy area for a chance to strike it rich and ask "Why Not, Minot?"
