NEW YORK � September 20, 2007 � Bravo announced the start of production on its new docu-drama "Manhattan Moms" (working title), a series following an eclectic group of Gotham socialites and their families. From their over-scheduled Manhattan lives of private schools, charity events and running businesses, to escaping to their summer homes in the Hamptons, the series will take a look at this particular cultural milieu and the real-life drama of Manhattan's exclusive society. The announcement was made by Frances Berwick, Executive Vice President, Programming & Production, Bravo.
"'Manhattan Moms' is a fly-on-the-wall glimpse into the privileged lives of New York's wealthy socialites," said Berwick. "We'll watch as they juggle calendars packed with charity fund-raising galas and the social whirl of the Hamptons, with interviews for elite private schools and high-powered careers."
Ricochet Television Inc. ("Super Nanny") is onboard to produce the series, with Lenid Rolov serving as executive producer.
