Our friends down the hall unveiled a bit of our upcoming programming slate, which includes new seasons of Real Housewives of Orange County, Top Chef Masters, and Million Dollar Listing LA, plus dating drama, battling families, and at least one globetrotting culinary competition, among other surprises.
Premiere dates haven't been announced, but Top Chef Masters will return for a fourth season, Million Dollar Listing LA will enter its fifth season, and RHOC -- the OG of Real Housewives franchises -- returns for a seventh season.
In addition to those returning faves, we also pulled back the curtain on four new shows:
Around the World in 80 Plates (working title)
The production team behind Top Chef takes its show on the road, literally. The series will see chefs travel to different international cities each week to test their skills in some of the most acclaimed restaurants in the world. A crash course in cultures and cuisines and a battery of challenges await in each city as the chefs work toward their ultimate challenge -- not just recreating, but reinventing the menus for the restaurants they visit.
Paint the Town (working title)
This series follows six young women who work in the city's trendiest art galleries by day, and run a gauntlet of hot spots, bars, and art scene functions at night. Throughout, they juggle guys, friendships, and demanding bosses as they find that living the chic, fashionable lifestyle of their dreams might be harder than they ever imagined.
Newlyweds: The First Year (working title)
In case the working title is too vague, here's an even more user-friendly description: this docuseries follows six diverse couples from across the country as they encounter the ups and downs of their first year of marriage, from "I do" to their first anniversary. Got it?
Thicker Than Water: The Marinos (premieres Sunday, August 21 at 11/10c)
If you aren't getting enough Jersey in your life, this tight knit family might do the trick. The Marinos seem to follow one main credo: "your business is everyone's business." They're each other's best friends and toughest critics, but in the end, they always have each other's backs. As big brother Anthony says, "If I have to sit in jail for 30 years to protect the honor of my sisters, I will do that."
