Brave has set the premiere date for its new scripted drama, Imposters – the story of Maddie (Inbar Lavi, “Gang Related”), a persona shifting con-artist who is as beautiful as she is dangerous, leaving her unwitting victims tormented when they realize they have been used and robbed of everything – including their hearts.
Imposters will premiere on Tuesday, February 7, 2017 (10/9C). Read on for series description and synopsis of the series premiere.
Bravo Media has greenlighted pilots for two new scripted series – My So Called Wife and True Fiction.
My So Called Wife follows a female con artist with a matrimonial bent and is written and co-executive produced by Adam Brooks (Definitely, Maybe) and Paul Adelstein (Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce).
True Fiction follows a writer-turned-university-professor who publishes a novel that was written by a late (and much hated) student and comes from writers/co-executive producers Brian Dannelly and Michael Urban (Saved). For further details, follow the jump.
Orange is the New Black’s Laverne Cox has been chosen to guest star in Bravo’s first original scripted series, Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce. She will play Adele Northrup, ‘a Pulitzer-Prize winning war journalist and LGBT activist who presents an award at a marriage equality gala.’
Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce stars Lisa Edelstein as Abby McCarthy, ‘a self-help book author who hides the fact that she’s separated from her husband as she starts to navigate her life as a single woman in her early 40s.’ For more details, check out the press release following the jump.
Bravo has announced three additions to its slate of scripted projects in development: Rules of Attraction, adapted from the Bret Easton Ellis novel – a kind of Rashomon approach to a murder on an elite college campus; Shanghai – an ensemble drama centered on an aspiring fashion designer’s move to Shanghai with her ambitious husband and the cultural shock that awaits them; and Sweet Life – a class drama following the Bennett family, who have come to Oak Bluffs to recover from a family tragedy and rebuild their lives.

Bravo, home to such popular unscripted shows as the three Real Housewives shows and Top Chef, is adding 15 new series to their schedule this season – including scripted series Odd Mom Out, where it’s not about keeping up with the Joneses, it’s about keeping up with the Rockefellers; and Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, created by Marti Noxon and based on the bestselling Girlfriends’ Guide books.
Two of the more interesting sounding unscripted series are Best New Restaurant – pitting ‘16 of the nation’s hottest new restaurants against each other in a series of challenges aimed at determining who provides the best all-around, top-to-bottom experience’ and the new edition of the Million Dollar Listing franchise, Million Dollar Listing Miami.

It’s always a treat when we get the chance to chat with Jeff Lewis from ‘Flipping Out’ on BRAVO. You never know what he’s going to say and where the conversation will go but it is definitely entertaining and anything but dull.
I had a chance to catch up with Jeff and once and for all find out if his long-time house manager Zoila did in fact kill housekeeper Lupe. Find out after the jump…
Million Dollar Listing: New York [Bravo, Wednesdays, 10/9C] doesn’t have anyone forced to live with anyone else. There’s no forced competition – with or without battles, challenges or any other crazy thing dreamt up by the show’s creators. It’s just three ridiculously good looking land sharks selling real estate in the toughest market in North America.
