Bravo has renewed its hit docudramas, and is adding another fashion-focused reality series. Flipping Out, The Rachel Zoe Project, Million Dollar Listing, and Tabatha’s Salon Takeover will all return, presumably in 2009, although no specific dates have been announced.
Flipping Out, the best of a strong group, will continue to follow Jeff Lewis and company, and love-to-hate-her Rachel Zoe will, of course, return for her series. While Million Dollar Listing dumped most of its cast and format after its first season, its third will stick with the winning formula from season two, following the wondefully loathsome Josh Flagg (the young one with the rich grandma), Madison Hildebrand (the gay/not gay one), and Chad Rogers (the one with the bad hair).
Bravo executive Frances Berwick said in Bravo’s announcement that “[b]ringing these compelling personalities back was a no-brainer. Our audience has grown an affection for each of these larger-than-life, talented characters and wants to see more of their lives and careers.”
Meanwhile, after previously announcing four brand-new fashion-focused reality series, Bravo may become home to yet another fashion-focused show. Variety reports that Magical Elves, the former producers of the likely-departed Project Runway, “have signed a talent deal with fashion PR diva Kelly Cutrone to create a show about the fast-paced behind-the-scenes world of Cutrone’s publicity shop, People’s Revolution.” They are “shopping the [pilot episode of the] show to networks — starting with NBC Universal,” as Magical Elves now “has a first-look deal” with them.
