Bravo Adds to Scripted Series Lineup

Bravo will look to build on its scripted series slate with the development of three new series, the network said Monday.

The new series include My So Called Wife, a dark comedy from Adam Brooks and Paul Adelstein (Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce) that follows a woman con-artist who marries and then abandons rich men; White Collar Wives, written by Vanessa Reisen (Extant, Weeds), which follows the lives of women married to men involved in a hedge fund scandal; and All The Glitters, from The Walking Dead’s Gale Anne Hurd’s Valhalla Entertainment and based on the book examining how Anna Wintour and Tina Brown dominated the 1980s publishing world. 

The announcements follows the first season of the network’s first scripted series Girlfriends Guide to Divorce, which drew 1.38 million viewers in Live+7, and the June launch of its first scripted comedy series Odd Mom Out.

“As we look to expand our scripted slate we're eagerly taking on new territories, from fashion to finance to female con-artists, and obviously jumped at the opportunity to continue our relationship with Paul Adelstein and Adam Brooks who have a proven track record with the network,” said Lara Spotts, Senior Vice President of development for Bravo in a statement
