EXCLUSIVE: They are the men behind the housewives. Matt Anderson and Nate Green, executive producers and showrunners of four Real Housewives series — The Real Housewives of New York, New Jersey, Atlanta as well as spinoff Bethenny Getting Married? — have launched their own production company, Purveyors of Pop. The duo also is finalizing an overall deal with Bravo. Under the pact, they will continue their duties as executive producers and showrunners on the 4 hit series (Green is on New Jersey, Anderson on Bethenny while both executive produce New York and Atlanta) as well as to develop new shows for the cable channel through their company. Overall deals are rare at Bravo and are usually reserved for the channel’s top producing talent. Top Chef executive producers Jane Lipsitz and Dan Cutforth of the Magical Elves have had a deal at the channel as part of a larger pact with NBC Universal. The Real Housewives of Atlanta is Bravo’s #1 show and the network just announced that it would use the series to launch a fifth night of original programming on Sunday next month. New Jersey, which has been renewed for a third season, recently posted a record audience for the Real Housewives franchise (3.9 million) for its reunion special. New York, which has been renewed for a fourth cycle, ended its third season with a series high viewership (2.6 million) for the season finale. And its spinoff, Bethenny, launched in June as Bravo’s most watched series premiere ever with more than 2 million viewers. Anderson and Green are with Innovative.
