ADDITIONAL NOTES: pilot order rescinded
DESCRIPTION: (from Bravo's press release, December 2012) Bravo Media announced today they have picked up two new scripted pilots slated to commence production early 2013. Both pilots center on the complex dynamics of modern families. "Rita," produced by Fox Television Studios, and "The Joneses," produced by ABC Studios, are part of the network's overall strategy to expand its non-scripted original programming slate into the scripted genre. Bravo plans to debut its first original scripted series in the fourth quarter of 2013. "The Joneses," from Life Unexpected creator Liz Tigelaar, is a remake of the 2009 Demi Moore and David Duchovny indie drama of the same name. "The Joneses" follows a seemingly perfect family of four that has just moved to an upscale suburb to start a new life, but have a secret they must keep from friends and neighbors... they aren't a real family at all.
