TCA 2014: Also, the cable network has ordered two new additional series
Bravo and Oxygen Media president Frances Berwick announced during Monday's Television Critics Association press tour that it has renewed freshman show “Southern Charm” for a second season. Additionally, it will be expanding its “Million Dollar Listing” franchise to San Francisco.
Also, it announced two additional new series: “There Goes the Motherhood” and “Secrets & Wives.”
Following the fourth season renewal and first Emmy nomination for “Million Dollar Listing New York,” Bravo is expanding into a fourth city: San Francisco. Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles returns Aug. 20 at 9/8c and Miami is currently airing Wednesdays at 9/8c. World of Wonder produces the “MDL” series.
“Southern Charm,” which showed the shenanigans of a group of blue blood Southerners in a very private Charleston, S.C. community, will return for a second season. Season 1 averaged nearly 1.3 million total viewers with the season finale (4/21/14) earning a series high of 1.6 million total viewers. It is produced by Haymaker Productions.
Here are Bravo's descriptions for its additional newly ordered series:
Following a high end “mommy and me” group in Los Angeles that is comprised of mothers with distinct and often conflicting parenting styles. Each woman comes to the group, led by parenting expert Jill Spivack, for a different reason and while some admittedly need help, others want to share their parenting knowledge thinking they've figured it all out.
“Secrets & Wives”
Produced by Haymaker and Mike TV with Aaron Rothman, Irad Eyal, Michaline Babich, Omid Kahangi, and Michael Call serving as Executive Producers.
Everyone has secrets– except this tight-knit, ultra-wealthy group of friends and rivals who know everything about each other. But that's just the beginning of the drama for this tangled group as they negotiate life-altering transitions from marriage failures to launching rival businesses to the ongoing hunt for love all under the judgmental eye of lifelong friends who should have their backs.
