Bravo is carbon-copying its successful reality TV formulas for a whole slate of new shows.
First up is Work Out, which besides sounding like Blow Out, seems to copy its formula completely. The new series, which debuts July 19, follows Beverly Hills spa owner Jackie Warner. Like Jonathan Antin, she has “a dynamic, no-nonsense attitude and she will accept only the best in every aspect of her life,” according to a Bravo press release.
Meanwhile, following up on Top Chef and Project Runway, Bravo will produce two competitions between professionals. There’s Heads Up, which “will pit sixteen of the most talented hairstylists in the country against each other in weekly challenges to see who has the skills to work for a leading international stylist,” and Top Decorator, which is self-explanatory, and its “contestants will be competing for cash to start their own design firm and a spot in one of New York’s finest designer showcases,” according to Bravo. Neither show has a debut date yet.
The network is also planning two other competitive reality series, although ones that break the formula a bit. War of the Wives, in which spouses teach each other specific skills and then compete with another couple for $20,000, and The Inn Crowd, in which “teams will be given a series of challenges” at an Inn, which one team will win. Neither of those shows have debut dates yet, either.
