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.
