A New Orleans version of Bravo's “Southern Charm" is on the drawing board, network officials announced Thursday.
"Southern Charm New Orleans" is one of six new unscripted series Bravo is planning.
Like the original "SC," which highlights a cluster of mostly young, uppercrust Charleston, South Carolinians, the New Orleans series will "offer viewers an exclusive glimpse into the sophisticated Creole culture of NOLA. Hidden away from the beads and beats of Bourbon Street is an exclusive community filled with wealth, legacy and tradition. Although the prestige in this town is plentiful, everything that glitters isn’t gold, and underneath brews a multitude of shocking secrets that could destroy the foundation of long-standing friendships," a news release says.
A premiere date has yet to be determined, Bravo spokesman Barry Rosenberg says.
"Southern Charm New Orleans" will be produced by InventTV and Vainglorious Productions with Michaline Babich, Whitney Sudler-Smith, Tim Maloney, Ashley McFarlin Buie and Sergio Alfaro serving as executive producers.
Other new Bravo series include: “Bethenny and Fredrik Property Project” (working title), starring Bravo personalities Betthany Frankel and Fredrik Eklund; “Sell it Like Serhant,” with "Million Dollar Listings New York's" Ryan Serhant; “Relationshep," starring "Southern charm's Shep Rose; “Love Italian Style” working title), five single African-American women look for love in Italy; and “A Night With My Ex,” self-explanatory.
