Bravo Announces Three More Scripted Shows
New series under development include an adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' Rules of Attraction.
Last month, we were thrilled to offer details of Bravo's continued expansion into scripted television, with early details about Girlfriend's Guide to Divorce, Odd Mom Out, and the Jennifer Garner Executive Produced drama All the Pretty Faces.
And now we're proud to announce the addition of three more scripted development projects, including an adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis' classic Rules of Attraction.
Read on for all the details.
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%-ers live as unhinged and wild adults in a Bret Easton Ellis world with seemingly no rules to hold these privileged few down.
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.
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.
