NEW YORK - January 28, 2013 - Bravo Media proves everything is bigger in Texas as its interactive, late-night talk show, "Watch What Happens Live," hosted by Andy Cohen, travels to the 20th Annual SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin for five shows beginning the week of March 10th. Hijinks and hilarity will ensue as Cohen, with shotski in tow, rubs elbows with the who's who of SXSW.
One of late night's most buzz worthy talk shows, "Watch What Happens Live," is a program with deep digital roots having initially launched as a web series in 2007. Since then, it has evolved into a multi-night, on-air success, which boasts one of late night's most digitally engaged audiences in cable. Each night, thousands of fans personally engage with Cohen (@BravoAndy) and his celebrity guests via Twitter.
"I fell in love with SXSW and Austin while on a panel last year," @BravoAndy said. "This festival is the perfect match for our highly interactive show and I can't wait to welcome Bravolebrities, stars and Texas legends to our Austin clubhouse."
"Watch What Happens Live" is Bravo's late-night, interactive talk show that features guests from the world of entertainment, politics, and pop culture. Hosted by Andy Cohen, the series includes lively debates on everything from fashion, the latest on everyone's favorite Bravolebrities, and what celebrity is making headlines that week.
