Bethenny's Getting Married?
As one of the breakout characters of The Real Housewives of New York City, Bethenny Frankel has shared her social life with millions, and in her new docu-series fans will get an up close and personal look at her career. Viewers will follow the outspoken New York City socialite as she juggles her happy love life, plans a wedding and prepares for baby while managing her insanely busy schedule and career as a natural foods chef. Somewhere in her schedule she found time to write two books on healthy living – Naturally Thin: Unleash Your Skinny Girl & Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting (that quickly became a New York Times bestseller) and The Skinnygirl Dish: Easy Recipes for Your Naturally Thin Life – and continues to manage her line of "Skinny Girl" cocktails. The series is produced by Shed Media U.S. for Bravo. Jennifer O'Connell, Matt Anderson, and Nick Emmerson serve as executive producers.
Thintervention with Jackie Warner
An emotional new docu-series inspired by renowned fitness expert Jackie Warner's life mission to change lives through healthy habits, Thintervention will give viewers an even closer look at what Warner does best – kick butt and inspire drastic lifestyle changes for her overweight clients who are struggling to lose weight and get healthy for good. The series will track the stories of people struggling with ongoing weight issues as Warner works with them in their real lives surrounded by the every day distractions and stresses of family and work. Each episode of the one hour series will feature a grueling workout pushing clients to their emotional and physical limits, a therapy session to get to the root of their weight issues, and a life lesson in nutrition such as grocery shopping or surprise raids of their home kitchens. "Thintervention with Jackie Warner" is produced by Shed Media U.S. for Bravo. Jennifer O'Connell, Jackie Warner, and Nick Emmerson serve as executive producers.
