The network will continue this trajectory in 2015 with the premiere of its first half-hour comedy series, "Odd Mom Out," premiering with back-to-back episodes on Monday, June 8 at 10pm ET/PT.

"Bravo continues to super-serve the most educated, affluent, engaged and loyal audience with our original content on all platforms," said Frances Berwick, President, Lifestyle Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. "We are excited to launch these new unscripted and scripted series and believe the new slate will deliver the same high-quality and viewing benefits, but with a broader lens to drive even more 'affluencers' to view as well as engage socially."

Bravo continues to be a Top 10 ad-supported cable entertainment network among P18-49 and P25-54 and maintains the #1 ranking for the most engaged, educated and affluent viewers for P18-49 in prime. Driven by its quality programming, Bravo has the most loyal P18-49 audience in cable entertainment, translating to one of the most effective environments for advertisers. Bravo ranked as the #1 network across all of television in 2014 for brand opinion lift from in-program placements, as well as the #1 network on television for viewers who like traditional ads and #2 for brand opinion lift from custom vignettes. The network also ranks among the top five most social cable reality networks, according to Nielsen.

"Regardless of the platform, Bravo continues to be at the forefront of innovative media opportunities to integrate our partners' marketing messages and engage this highly influential audience," said Laura Molen, Executive Vice President, Lifestyle Advertising Sales Group, NBCUniversal. "There is truly no other place to reach this uniquely young, affluent and social audience at such scale."

NEW SERIES:

"Après Ski" (working title)

Co-Produced by Tricon Films & Television and Bravo with Andrea Gorfolova, Jeff Hervet, Kevin Lee and Jameel Bharmal serving as Executive Producers.

When the rich and famous want the ultimate winter ski vacation, the hottest place to go is Whistler, British Columbia where breathtaking mountain adventures are only rivaled by off slope après ski extravagance. In a town where the stakes are as high as the slopes, meet the well-groomed staff at this luxurious concierge company who are the behind-the-scenes magic-makers orchestrating once in a lifetime vacations for their upscale and demanding clients.

"Below Deck Mediterranean"

Produced by 51 Minds Entertainment, an Endemol Company, with Mark Cronin and Courtland Cox serving as Executive Producers.

The "Below Deck" franchise is heading to the world's oldest cruising grounds, the Mediterranean Sea, for its next super-yacht charter season. The new European setting not only provides spectacular scenery, culture and nightlife, but a whole new level of service standards and charter guest demands.

"Fit Club" (working title)

Produced by Kate Little, Claire Poyser and Derek McLean of Lime Pictures, Eli Holzman, Stephen Lambert and Jacob Cohen-Holmes of All3 Media America along with Executive Producers Tess Gamboa and John Platt.

It's survival of the fittest for New York City's hottest trainers who are competing for the same wealthy Manhattanites and famous celebrity clients. If they can't keep their romances, feuds and professional jealousies in check, things could get physical.

"Ladies of Dallas" (working title)

Produced by Goodbye Pictures with Rich Bye and Andrew Hoegl serving as Executive Producers.

From glamorous galas to scintillating scandals, and supersized spending habits, life in the elite tier of the Dallas social scene is hard to crack, and even harder to maintain. Whether driven by vanity, personal validation, or career advancement, these Lone Star ladies all share the same goal- to climb the social ladder and stay on top.

"Married to Medicine Houston"

Produced by Fremantle North America and developed by Purveyors of Pop with Matt Anderson and Nate Green serving as Executive Producers.

The popular franchise heads to the largest medical community in the country for "Married to Medicine Houston." These diverse and driven young doctors and wives of physicians look like they have it all - educated, sexy and at the top of their game. But peel back the layers and you will see that new obstacles might threaten their momentum. After punishing years of sacrifice and putting life on hold, how they navigate marriage, children, family and social pressure will either derail their promising careers or prove that they can have it all.

"My Fab 40th"

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

Delve into the world of extravagant 40th birthday parties where people put some serious "happy" into a righteous rite of passage. From unlimited budgets to lavish delicacies and over-the-top entertainment, fans will see why turning 40 is such a gift.

"Mother Funders"

Produced by True Entertainment with Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin, Jen Morton and Leola Westbrook as Executive Producers.

Meet the ambitious suburban ladies of Locust Grove, Georgia's Parent-Teacher Organization. These moms are a real class act, parlaying their executive room experience to run the local PTO and raise thousands of dollars for the town's local elementary school. Full of teachable moments, they give new meaning to "getting schooled."

"NeNe and Kim: The Road to Riches" (working title)

Produced by True Entertainment with Steven Weinstock, Glenda Hersh and Lauren Eskelin along with NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak Biermann serving as Executive Producers.

Atlanta's "most driven" housewives - NeNe Leakes and Kim Zolciak Biermann - drive out of their comfort zones and across the country to discover America on a one-of-a-kind adventure. The road to LA may be paved with good intentions, but that doesn't mean they won't occasionally drive each other crazy.

"Tour Group" (working title)

Produced by Monkey Kingdom with Will Macdonald, Jason Crosby and Amy Chacon serving as Executive Producers.

A diverse and vibrant group set out on a mind-blowing vacation through the most stunning, eclectic and exclusive destinations around the globe. With varied personalities forced together in foreign environments, will this two month dream journey become too much adventure for these jetsetters, or will they make it a permanent vacation?

"Recipe for Deception"

Produced by Embassy Row and Realizer Productions with Shauna Minoprio, Matt Berkowitz and Michael Davies serving as Executive Producers.

It is a battle of secrets and knives in this fast-paced and innovative self-contained cooking competition series where a chef's cunning is almost as important as their culinary skill. In each stand-alone episode host Max Silvestri guides four new chefs through head-to-head elimination rounds in which they are tasked with creating a stunning dish featuring a main ingredient. The twist is that they have no idea what that ingredient is while cooking. Based on the popular parlor game 'Two Truths and a Lie,' competing chefs ask each other three "yes or no" questions to determine what their mystery ingredient is, and their opponent answers strategically with two truthful answers and one outright lie. If you can't stand deceit, get out of the kitchen.
