BRAVO MEDIA PRESCRIBES A HEALTHY DOSE OF DRAMA WITH NEW DOCU-SERIES "MARRIED TO MEDICINE" PREMIERING SUNDAY, MARCH 24 AT 9PM ET/PT

NEW YORK - February 12, 2013 - Bravo Media showcases the fast-paced and drama-filled social scene of Atlanta's exclusive medical inner circle as "Married to Medicine" premieres on Sunday, March 24 at 9pm et/pt. The new docu-series follows the lives of six of Atlanta's most dynamic and successful women, including doctors and wives of doctors, as they juggle bustling careers, family, and social calendars. From baby deliveries to some of Atlanta's largest charities, these women are united by medicine, but often struggle to maintain friendships in the face of their world's rigid hierarchy. These passionate and dynamic women prove that in the capital of the South, and the world of medicine, perception is everything and it's not enough to be just any type of Doctor or Doctor's wife.

Meet the cast of "Married to Medicine":

Toya Bush-Harris: Toya met her husband, emergency medicine physician Eugene Harris, during a speed dating event five years ago while pursuing her Masters in education from the University of Phoenix and working two jobs. Even though Eugene was completing a rigorous medical residency at the same time, no amount of distractions could keep this dynamic couple apart. In addition to being a busy mom to boys Ashton, 3, and Avery, 1, Toya is helping to launch her husband's medical concierge business and working on publishing a children's nursery book series. On top of commitments and career projects, Toya and her husband are in the process of building a home conducive to their growing family. When she first moved to Atlanta, Toya joined Mocha Moms, an organization that brings moms together in the community to promote healthy families and she currently enjoys volunteering at her church and mentoring young women in the area.

Mariah Huq: "Queen Bee" and a sophisticated and fierce mother of two, Mariah brings a new definition to the term "working mom." Enjoying a strong, multicultural marriage to Dr. Aydin Huq, an emergency physician & native of Bangladesh, Mariah juggles family and career with their two children, Lauren-Taylor, 8, and Ethan-Tyler, 6. Mariah openly embraces her husband's culture by attending Mosque, learning to cook traditional Indian food and studying Bengali. The founder/CEO of Mariah Media Group, troop leader of her daughter's Girl Scout Troop, and a producer of "Married to Medicine," Mariah has a full life. When she's not busy in the states, Mariah and her family support their family foundation in Bangladesh and are currently working on building a hospital in name of her late father-in-law.

Quad Webb-Lunceford: Known as the "Black Barbie" in her social circle, Quad is the life of the party and a self-acknowledged socialite. She is newly wed to psychiatrist Dr. Gregory Lunceford, whose reserved demeanor often clashes with her unpredictable feistiness as their love blossomed into a bond that will stand the test of time. Quad and Gregory are the proud parents of two pampered pooches: Khloe and Kar'ie. In addition to being enthusiastic supporters of the Canine Assistants Foundation, the Luncefords also volunteer their time and efforts with various charities and organizations throughout Atlanta. Quad, who dances to the beat of her own drum, often says, "I did not 'marry medicine,' medicine was lucky enough to marry me."

Dr. Jacqueline Walters: Doctor to stars like Toni Braxton, T.I. and Usher, this Board-certified OBGYN lives by the philosophy "work hard, play hard." As a two-time breast cancer survivor, Jacqueline has a positive and vibrant attitude toward life. Her dedication to work and family sets this bombshell in motion at all times. Her "Thin is In" motto comes with a hint of vanity and sometimes pure obsession with eating healthy and excessive exercise. Between furthering her OBGYN practice, fostering a happy family life, and advocating for breast cancer awareness, many wonder how Jacqueline has time to balance it all.

Kari Wells: This well-mannered, British-born model skillfully balances work, play, and family life in Atlanta with her husband of 10 years, Colombian raised, orthopedic surgeon Duncan Wells. Kari has had many successful careers such as owner of a production company and CFO of her husband's orthopedic practice and medical realty company, but her most important role is as mother to their two children, Alexa, 8, and Bryson, 7. The couple supports many charitable organizations including Doctors Without Borders and Thriving Children Atlanta. Kari's dogged determination to succeed, sense of humor and spirituality help her to live life to the fullest.

Dr. Simone Whitmore: This independent OBGYN runs both her practice and house with an iron fist. She and her more laid-back husband of 16 years, Cecil Whitmore, have two sons, Miles, 14, and Michael, 10. She has owned North Perimeter OBGYN since 2004 and is a solo practitioner, allowing her to make her own rules. While her staff may call her "The Warden" and "Witchmore," Simone simply likes hard workers and refuses to settle for mediocrity. In her spare time, Simone participates in a mentor program with Spelman College and a local high school. When her packed schedule allows, Simone loves to shop, socialize, travel, and catch up on much-needed sleep.

Produced by FremantleMedia North America and developed by Purveyors of Pop with Matt Anderson, Nate Green and Maty Buss serving as Executive Producers.
