Sarah Jessica Parker, Bravo Mentor 'American Artist'
'Make Me a Supermodel,' 'Top Chef,' 'Real Housewives' will return
Bravo is developing a series with Sarah Jessica Parker, is adding to the "Top Chef" brand and has announced a slew of additional new and returning programs in the food, fashion, design and pop culture genres.
Fresh from her silver screen triumph in the "Sex & the City" movie, Parker and her company Pretty Matches will team up with Magical Elves to develop "American Artist," a reality competition series in which aspiring contemporary artists compete in a range of disciplines including sculpture, painting, photography and industrial design. The winner will get a gallery show, cash prize and sponsored national museum tour. Parher previously appeared as a guest judge on the network's "Project Runway."
Also coming to Bravo is the spin-off "Top Chef: Masters," which pits A-list chefs, some of whom appeared as guest judges on "Top Chef," against each other. Also in development is "Fashion House," based on the British show of the same name, which is a competition series that features teams of designers that are tasked with replicating the workings of a fashion house so they can design an entire line in the hopes of having them marketed.
Bravo also announced premiere dates for "The Rachel Zoe Project" (Sept. 8 at 11 p.m. ET/PT), a docudrama about the celebrity stylist, "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" (Sept. 16 at 10 p.m. ET/PT), which brings the Housewives brand to the South, and " Tommy Hilfiger Presents: Ironic Iconic America" (Oct. 3 at 8 p.m. ET/PT), a one-hour special inspired by Hilfiger's book collaboration with George Lois, "Iconic America: A Roller-Coaster Ride Through the Eye-Popping Panorama of American Pop Culture," and providing a cross-country look at pop culture.
In addition to picking up the series "Miami Social," the network also announced the following returning series: the second seasons of "Make Me a Supermodel," "The Real Housewives of New York City" and "Tim Gunn's Guide to Style," the fourth season of "The Real Housewives of Orange County" and the fifth season of "Top Chef," this time set in New York.
