BRAVO'S NEWEST DOCU-DRAMA, "FIRST CLASS ALL THE WAY" TAKES OFF ON MONDAY, NOVEMBER 3 AT 10 PM ET/PT
New York, NY � September 18, 2008 � With a proven track record of hit docu-dramas, Bravo announces the premiere of its newest series in the genre, "First Class All the Way." Sara Duffy, founder of a Los Angeles based multi-million dollar travel concierge business, takes viewers inside the world of high-end luxury travel while revealing the drama of keeping demanding clients content and making extravagant dream vacations come to life. "First Class All the Way" premieres on Bravo on Monday, November 3 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
"First Class All the Way" brings viewers into a world where champagne wishes and caviar dreams are reality. Billionaires, socialites and entertainment moguls turn to Duffy and her team of travel experts to scour the world in search of the best, most one-of-a-kind experiences. Outrageous demands from their clients are nothing out of the ordinary as her team ensures that there is no mission too great, no corner of the world too remote, and no experience too immense. From private yachts, million dollar villas, and exclusive resorts � Duffy and her team make the dreams of the rich and famous come true. This season viewers will get a first class look as Duffy sends five wealthy housewives to Monte Carlo for a private tour of the Monaco Royal Families art collection and a meeting with Prince Albert, a romantic getaway to the Amalfi Coast in Italy for actor Sam Page ("Shark") and his long-time girlfriend, a private wine tasting tour in Napa Valley and the ultimate guys vacation for "Heroes" star Leonard Roberts and his friends to a private villa in Tuscany.
Duffy has worked in the travel industry for the past seventeen years and was recently named as one of Travel & Leisure magazine's "A-List" agents. Her discerning client roster includes international businessmen, celebrities, corporate giants, a yacht division and an international concierge service. Her personal relationships with the most exclusive hotels, private jet services, restaurants, clubs, wineries, private museums and one-of-a-kind destinations enable her to provide clients with exclusive access and unlimited resources.
Duffy's talented and often dramatic staff includes Cynde Schneider, an industry vet for over 25 years and described by Duffy as "the voice of reason in the middle of chaos;" the perfectionist, Monica Selvaggio, who has been working with Duffy for more than three years; and the highly-opinionated Cindy Wirth, a personal friend of Duffy's who just recently took on the job of a concierge. While the team works together to create the most relaxing vacations, their office is anything but calm. Personalities clash and egos are bruised, yet in their VIP clients are consistently met with all around first class treatment.
"First Class All the Way" is produced by Stone & Company Entertainment for Bravo. Scott A. Stone, Dave Osper and Lori Kaye are executive producers.
