New York, NY - May 8, 2017 - Bravo Media is adding six new unscripted series to its development slate, it was announced today by Rachel Smith, Senior Vice President, Development. While the network recently announced six new greenlights that diversify across many genres, this move signifies the network's commitment toward leading the industry in the high-end real estate space, building upon Emmy-nominated series like "Million Dollar Listing New York" and "Flipping Out." In addition, the network is exploring several new formats to further expand its industry leading slate of established series with year-over-year growth.

"Bravo's incredible equity in the high-end real estate space allows us to explore the biggest characters and most aspirational lifestyles, which are both key differentiators in this crowded landscape," said Smith, "In addition, with a large stable of original series that continue to grow in the key demos, we're able to take big swings in new spaces across many genres, and we're excited to get these projects off the ground."

In 2017-to-date, Bravo is the #6 ad-supported cable entertainment network in the key P18-49 demo. In addition, the network is the leader among the top 10 ad-supported cable networks in returning series with year-over-year ratings growth in P18-49.
