Bravo at its annual upfront presentation on Tuesday touted 16 new series — including its previously announced Lisa Edelstein-starring divorce dramedy, the network’s first scripted comedy and a pair of Real Housewives offshoots — as well as confirmed a total of 16 renewals.
Among the cabler’s first scripted forays, in addition to the Marti Noxon-penned Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce (starring House alum Edelstein as a soon-to-be divorcee navigating the single world, again), a green light was given to Odd Mom Out, in which author and fashionista Jill Kargman stars in a version of her own life among the uberwealthy momzillas of New York’s Upper East Side.
On the unscripted side, Bravo’s new/new-ish offerings include Manzo’d With Children (Caroline Manzo of The Real Housewives of New Jersey attempts to rein in her crazy Italian family), The Real Housewives of Atlanta: Kandi’s Wedding (in which Kandi Burruss plans her union with Todd Tucker), Top Chef Duels (Top Chef/Top Chef Masters alumni compete in extreme culinary challenges), Best New Restaurant (Tom Colicchio hosts a Stateside take on the UK hit Ramsay’s Best Restaurant), Euros of Hollywood (six European jetsetters take Los Angeles by storm), Ladies of London (about British socialites) and Million Dollar Listing Miami.
