Bravo replaces Fashion Show producers, starts casting for season two

As Bravo previously announced, its Project Runway knock-off The Fashion Show is coming back for a second season, but it’ll have new producers, who will hopefully turn it from a shameless, weak clone into something people might actually care about watching.

The first season was produced by 3 Ball Productions, but a press release says that “Left/Right Productions will produce the second season for Bravo with Banks Tarver and Ken Druckerman as executive producers.” Banks and Druckerman’s company Left/Right has produced Bravo’s 9 By Design, VH1’s I Want to Work for Diddy, and Showtime’s This American Life, among other series.

The second season is now casting via five open calls (Seattle, April 24; L.A., May 1; Austin, May 8; New York, May 16; and Chicago, May 22), and is also accepting auditions via videotape.

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
