A Hollywood hair stylist, a celebrity fashion designer and a celebrity New York chef are the stars of 3 series Bravo announced this morning as part of its development slate. The fourth one, Thicker Than Water, revolves around a multi-generational family – an unusual departure for the cable channel which has been focused mostly on style, cooking, conniving housewives, celebrities and larger-than-life personalities. Here are the descriptions of Bravo’s 4 series in development:
Dean’s list: Hollywood Hair Guy and former American Idol stylist, Dean Banowetz, is best known for his fierce styling, endless imagination, celebrity clientele, amazing lifestyle. From opening a new salon and working with rocket scientists inventing his next must have hair product to building his high-end clientele by doing high-priced house calls, the series follows Dean as he builds his brand in Hollywood. The project is exec produced by Scott Stone for Stone & Co. Entertainment and Adam Rosenblatt, Christian Horner, and Jamie Rosenblatt for H2R Entertainment.
The Chris March Project: An up-close look at the over-the-top world of celebrity fashion designer Chris March, from concept to delivery, each week viewers will follow Project Runway alum Chris and his eccentric crew of fashion misfits as they create a one-of-a-kind design for his loyal clientele, which includes everyone from Madonna to Meryl Streep. Executive producing are Matt Westmore and Noah Scheinmann for Matt Westmore Media and No Regrets Entertainment.
Roblé & Co: Chef Roblé Ali has established his reputation cooking for some of the biggest celebrities at New York hot-spots like Avenue. Now, viewers can follow Roblé’s attempt to conquer the catering world with his innovative cuisine and style. Based out of his Brooklyn loft, his new company is guided by Roblé’s bossy big sister, Jasmine, and relies on the skills of a ragtag crew of old friends and unique characters. Executive producing are Peter Franchella, Aaron Rothman, and Al Szymanski for Red Line Films.
Thicker Than Water: This new project will give viewers a glimpse into the lives of a tight-knit, multi-generational family and the unbreakable bonds they share. From family celebrations to family feuds, we’ll go inside the dramatic, chaotic lives of the many brothers and sisters (and their spouses and children) and be there for all the highs and lows that make life in a sprawling family an ongoing adventure. Executive producing are Kimberly Cowin and John Ehrhard for Pink Sneakers.
