Bravo Adds to Scripted Slate


NEW YORK: Bravo Media is continuing its commitment to scripted programming, with two new pilots coming from Universal Cable Productions.

The dark comedies include My So Called Wife (working title) from Adam Brooks (Definitely, Maybe) and Paul Adelstein (Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce). The show follows a female con-artist. True Fiction (working title) comes from Brian Dannelly and Michael Urban (Saved) and is about a professor desperate for her next hit who steals her late student’s manuscript.

“As Bravo expands in the scripted space, we are committed to exploring worlds and characters that are distinctly different from our established slate,” said Lara Spotts, the senior VP of development for Bravo Media. “My So Called Wife and True Fiction take us on wild rides as dramatic as they are funny—with one being a quest to uncover the truth and the other a mission to hide it at all costs.”

“Joining Bravo on their journey into scripted programming with Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce has been an amazing experience as we watched the audience connect with characters we love,” added Dawn Olmstead, the executive VP of development at Universal Cable Productions. “We are excited to partner once again with Bravo to deliver distinctive and thought-provoking storytelling, this time with the stellar teams of Brian Dannelly and Michael Urban behind True Fiction plus Adam Brooks and Paul Adelstein on My So Called Wife.”
