Chris March, Dean Banowetz & Chef Robl� Ali Featured In New Development

BURBANK, CA - October 12, 2010 - From an unfiltered and emotional look at talented, memorable characters to head-turning concepts that viewers can instantly grasp, Bravo unveils a diverse new development slate that includes Dean's List (working title), The Chris March Project (working title), Robl� & Co (working title) and Thicker Than Water (working title). The announcement was made by Eli Lehrer, Vice President of Development for Bravo. Exploring food, fashion, design and pop culture, the latest wave of projects will showcase a variety of genres and formats that embrace the active lifestyle and culture of Bravo's audience.

"Our diverse new development slate reflects Bravo's continual commitment to develop and showcase a wide range of creative content, and these docu-dramas feature fascinating individuals whose lives we think will resonate with our audience," said Lehrer. "I am extremely excited about our new projects that will allow us to continue to evolve and reinforce Bravo's pop culture brand with more watercooler hits."


Dean's list (Working Title): 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.

Dean's List (working title) is executive produced by Scott Stone for Stone & Co. Entertainment and Adam Rosenblatt, Christian Horner, and Jamie Rosenblatt for H2R Entertainment.

The Chris March Project (Working Title): 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 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. Tensions are sure to rise as "Project Runway" alum Chris pushes the boundaries of fashion and challenges his clients' comfort zones. In the end, will the design fulfill the client's fashion fantasy or will it turn out to be more than they could handle?

The Chris March Project (working title) is executive produced by Matt Westmore and Noah Scheinmann for Matt Westmore Media and No Regrets Entertainment.

Robl� & Co (Working Title): Chef Robl� Ali has established his reputation cooking for some of the biggest celebrities at New York hot-spots like Avenue. Now, viewers can follow Robl�'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 Robl�'s bossy big sister, Jasmine, and relies on the skills of a ragtag crew of old friends and unique characters. They produce world-class events for New York socialites to media moguls, but pulling them off is never as smooth as they want it to be. Robl� has mastered the art of cooking, but running a business is a whole different story.

Robl� & Co (working title) is executive produced by Peter Franchella, Aaron Rothman, and Al Szymanski for Red Line Films.

Thicker Than Water (Working Title): 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.

Thicker Than Water (working title) is executive produced by Kimberly Cowin and John Ehrhard for Pink Sneakers.
