THE BATTLE FOR O.C. BEGINS ON BRAVO MEDIA’S NEW SERIES “REAL ESTATE WARS” PREMIERING JULY 6TH AT 10PM ET/PT

May 18, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

NEW YORK– May 18, 2017Bravo Media’s new docu-series, “Real Estate Wars,” premiering Thursday, July 6th at 10pm ET/PT, brings the cut-throat world of real estate in Orange County to life. With limited inventory in a premium area, this series follows two top rival real estate teams, The McMonigle Team and Relegance Group, as they fight for supremacy in this distinct and wealthy enclave. For a sneak peek, please visit: http://www.bravotv.com/real-estate-wars/season-1/videos/your-first-look-at-real-estate-wars

It’s the ultimate turf battle in the O.C., and things get tense when realty and reality collide. John McMonigle was formerly the number one real estate agent in the country, but lost everything when the real estate market crashed, ultimately forcing him into bankruptcy. John, never a man to stay down, rebuilt his empire with five ambitious agents to create The McMonigle Team, with one of their primary goals being to beat The Relegance Group. Relegance is made up of five zealous agents, including the “real estate queen” of Orange County, Jojo Romeo, who happens to have a contentious past with John. As an estranged employee of John’s, she became determined to join Relegance and help them become the #1 team in the O.C. However, it’s a small world, and when they vie for the same high end clients, limited listings and large commissions, the competition can be ruthless. With 10 agents, eccentric clients, multi-million-dollar deals, old vendettas, and one common goal of winning, all is fair in real estate and war.

Los Angeles, CA (May 18, 2017)ID10T Music Festival & Comic Conival, the groundbreaking first of its kind event that will combine chart-topping musicians, renowned comedians, makers, and some of the most influential people in the entertainment industry, together in one place for a once-in-a-lifetime weekend experience, has announced its first wave of panels, which include famed shows Portlandia, Mystery Science Theater 3000, Harmontown, and Stan Against Evil. A second announcement will be released soon, revealing even more exciting panels and guests. Created and hosted by Chris Hardwick, ID10T (pronounced I-D-ten-T) will take over the Shoreline Amphitheatre and surrounding grounds in Mountain View, CA on Saturday, June 24th and Sunday, June 25th.
Confirmed show panels and guests are as follows:
Portlandia, featuring guests Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, moderated by Chris Hardwick.
IFC’s Emmy-nominated comedy Portlandia is currently in production for its eighth and final season. Created by Fred Armisen, Carrie Brownstein and Jonathan Krisel, Portlandia explores the eccentric misfits who embody the foibles of modern culture, starring Armisen and Brownstein. The series is executive produced by Lorne Michaels and produced by Broadway Video.
Mystery Science Theater 3000, featuring guests Jonah Ray, Hampton Yount, and Rebecca Hanson, moderated by Wil Wheaton.
For almost 30 years, the award-winning comedy television series Mystery Science Theater 3000, created by Joel Hodgson, has been known as one of the best cult TV shows of all time. Following its record-breaking #BringBackMST3K Kickstarter campaign, fourteen brand-new episodes of the cult television show Mystery Science Theater 3000 launched on April 14, 2017, exclusively on Netflix. In the new season of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (aka MST3K) Kinga Forrester (Felicia Day) and her loyal henchman, Max (Patton Oswalt), have revived the infamous experiment started by Kinga’s father twenty-nine years earlier: How many cheesy movies does it take to drive a person mad? In this latest reiteration of the show, her test subject is Jonah Heston (Jonah Ray), a space pilot for Gizmonic Institute who gets trapped responding to a distress call from the dark side of the moon. Confined aboard the Satellite of Love, Jonah lives with his robot friends, Gypsy (voiced by Rebecca Hanson), Tom Servo (voiced by Baron Vaughn), and Crow T. Robot (voiced by Hampton Yount). Confronted with Kinga’s choices in torturous films, Jonah and the bots band together to ward off lunacy by continuously riffing on the movies in rapid-fire succession.
Harmontown, featuring guests Dan Harmon, Jeff B. Davis, and Spencer Crittenden.
Dan Harmon (Community, Rick & Morty) alongside “comptroller” Jeff B. Davis (Whose Line is it Anyway), and game master Spencer Crittenden (HarmonQuest) will bring his wildly popular podcast “Harmontown” to the festival – LIVE. Expect ineffectual rants, raps, shameful stories and special guests. Dan Harmon is the Emmy® winning creator/executive producer of the comedy series Community as well as the co-creator/executive producer of Adult Swim’s Rick & Morty.
Stan Against Evil, featuring guests John C McGinley, Janet Varney, and Dana Gould.
IFC’s original horror comedy series Stan Against Evil is currently in production for its second season. Created, written and executive produced by Dana Gould (The Simpsons, Parks and Recreation), Stan Against Evil stars John C. McGinley (Scrubs) and Janet Varney (You’re the Worst). Stan Against Evil follows Stan Miller (McGinley), a perpetually disgruntled former sheriff of a small New England town who was forced into retirement. Stan has trouble relinquishing his authority to Evie Barret (Varney), the tough and beautiful new sheriff in town, but they form an unlikely alliance when both begin to realize things are not quite right in their quaint New England town. Together, they valiantly fight a plague of unleashed demons that have been haunting the town, which just happens to be built on the site of a massive 17th century witch burning.
