BRAVO MEDIA GREENLIGHTS THIRD SCRIPTED SERIES "MY SO CALLED WIFE" FROM UNIVERSAL CABLE PRODUCTIONS

Starring Inbar Lavi, Rob Heaps, Parker Young and Stephen Bishop

NEW YORK - March 24, 2016 - Bravo Media continues its foray into scripted programming and announces a series pick-up for dark comedy "My So Called Wife" (working title), from Universal Cable Productions (UCP) and executive producers Adam Brooks ("Definitely, Maybe,"), who directed the pilot, and Paul Adelstein ("Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce"). Set to premiere in 2017 with a 10-episode first season, the hour-long series follows the exploits of an unflappable con-artist as she moves on to her next victim while her exes unite in a desperate search for the truth. The series joins Bravo's original scripted slate including "Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce" and half-hour comedy "Odd Mom Out," returning for a sophomore season this summer. This announcement marks the first scripted greenlight for Bravo to be produced through the new NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment unit led by Bill McGoldrick, Executive Vice President, Scripted Content.

"Filled with intrigue and drama along with Bravo's trademark wink and humor, this series is the perfect addition to the network's slate as we continue our drive in the scripted arena," said Frances Berwick, President, Lifestyle Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. "This project builds upon the larger than life characters already populating Bravo in our scripted and unscripted fare, but is a world we could never do justice in reality, without the FBI subpoenaing us."

"As Bravo expands its scripted profile, we're proud to bring to life a story that is humorous, smart and sexy - the perfect fit for Bravo's discerning audience," said Jeff Wachtel, Chief Content Officer, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment and President, Universal Cable Productions. "This project has been a longtime labor of love for Dawn Olmstead who brought it to us before joining our studio. We're all excited to work with the brilliant Adam Brooks and Paul Adelstein."

"My So Called Wife" (wt) follows Maddie (Inbar Lavi, "Gang Related"), a master-of-disguise con-artist who gets men and women to fall in love with her, marries them and then disappears with their money and just enough dirty inside information to guarantee they will never go to the police. But things get complicated when her latest victims, Ezra (Rob Heaps, "Frankenstein and the Vampyre: A Dark and Stormy Night") and Richard (Parker Young, "Suburgatory") track her down just as she eyes her next mark, Patrick (Stephen Bishop, "Being Mary Jane").
