Eleven new shows, including a spinoff for "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Lisa Vanderpump and a new "Top Chef" series with Jen Carroll, Richard Blais, Fabio Viviani and Spike Mendelsohn, are heading to Bravo. The network has also renewed eight shows, including "Tabatha Takes Over."
"SUR" goes inside "Housewives" star Vanderpump's LA hotspot restaurant. "Life After Top Chef" follows the personal and professional lives of the four former "Top Chef" cheftestants. There are also new shows set on yachts, in the offices of icanhascheezburger.com and in art galleries and the network also announced seven new unscripted projects in development.
Two scripted shows are in the works at Bravo, but the subject matter is familiar to the established audience. "22 Birthdays" follows the lives of a group of parents at a private school, with each episode centered around a lavish birthday party. "Blowing Sunshine" hails from "90210's" Jason Ning and follows the staff and patients of a fictional private rehab center. Bravo plans to premiere its first scripted series in 2013.
Along with "Tabatha," Bravo has renewed "Flipping Out," "Million Dollar Decorators," "Top Chef Masters," “Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles," "Chef Roblé & Co.," "Pregnant in Heels" and "Inside the Actors Studio."
The cast of "Mad Men" will get the "Inside The Actors Studio" later this year and the show will celebrate 250 episodes with James Lipton looking back on the best moments from his 287 past guests.
