BRAVO MEDIA ADDS TO SCRIPTED SLATE DEVELOPING THREE NEW PROJECTS

NEW YORK - May 9, 2014 -Bravo Media continues to increase its slate of scripted programming announcing the development of three new series including "Rules of Attraction," a high concept television adaptation of the Bret Easton Ellis book, "Shanghai," an ensemble drama centered around a group of ex-pats living in China, and "Sweet Life," a family drama set in the Inkwell area of Martha's Vineyard where affluent African Americans flock to vacation. Previously announced scripted projects include series greenlights for "Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce" and "Odd Mom Out," as well as the development of "All the Pretty Faces," from executive producer Jennifer Garner's Vandalia Films in association with Warner Horizon Television.

"With these new additions to Bravo's expanding scripted slate, we're taking our viewers on a cultural odyssey into the debauchery of Camden College, through the glittering towers of Shanghai and onto the elite shores of Martha's Vineyard to do what Bravo does best - tell compelling stories through dynamic and unconventional characters," said Andrew Wang, Vice President, Scripted TV Development and Production.

Bravo Scripted Development Projects:

"Rules of Attraction"

Written by Roger Avary ("The Rules of Attraction," "Beowulf") for Lionsgate TV with Greg Shapiro (Zero Dark Thirty) serving as an Executive Producer

Inspired by the book and film of the same name, the high concept series takes the students and faculty at the fictional Camden College and unravels a murder mystery by telling the same story through 12 different points of view. Children of the 1%-er's live as unhinged and wild adults in a Bret Easton Ellis world with seemingly no rules to hold these privileged few down.

"Shanghai"

Written by David Henry Hwang ("M. Butterfly,"" Chinglish") for Lionsgate TV with Jordan Kerner ("Smurfs") serving as an Executive Producer

Treading into unexplored territory, this first-of-its-kind television show is set in one of the fastest growing and wealthiest cities in the world. It's a place where many come to succeed - but most fail - when they bump up against unexpected cultural barriers: "guanxi" (connections and relationships) and how much yuan you have trump traditional business practices and regulations. This ensemble drama is centered around an aspiring American fashion designer who moves to this decadent city with her ambitious but naïve husband only to be wooed by a powerful and fascinating Asian billionaire.

"Sweet Life"

Written and executive produced by Amy Bloom ("State Of Mind").

A real life paradise of bucolic cottages and Victorian mansions, Oak Bluffs is the place where, for four generations, the privileged have gone to summer. A one hour ferry ride from Providence, R.I., the "Inkwell" area of Martha's Vineyard is the "go to" destination for upscale and affluent African Americans where amongst the visiting guests, you'll find the Obamas, Spike Lee and the parents of Blue Ivy. Set against this backdrop, this class drama follows the Bennett family who having suffered a recent tragedy that almost tore the family apart, have come to this haven to rebuild their lives. It's a summer that will forever change them as secrets resurface, romances begin, and a new family is born.
