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.

RAISE A GLASS TO AN ALL-NEW SEASON OF BRAVO MEDIA’S “VANDERPUMP RULES” PREMIERING MONDAY, NOVEMBER 7 AT 9PM ET/PT

September 27, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

nup_175026_9000

NEW YORK – September 26, 2016 – Bravo Media serves up the fifth season of fan-favorite “Vanderpump Rules,” premiering Monday, November 7 at 9pm ET/PT, with Lisa Vanderpump and her crew of current and former SURvers back for another round of wild, sexy, and utterly unpredictable chaos. For a sneak peek of the new season, please visit http://www.bravotv.com/vanderpump-rules/season-5/videos/your-first-look-at-vanderpump-rules-season-5.

The new season of “Vanderpump Rules” once again partners Lisa with Jax Taylor, Stassi Schroeder, Scheana Shay, Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, James Kennedy, Katie Maloney, Tom Schwartz, Kristen Doute, and Lala Kent. Amidst the constant chaos with her staff, Lisa manages to keep it classy as she balances her multiple restaurants, businesses, and philanthropic efforts.

New to the SUR staff is Jax’s country-tough girlfriend, Brittany Cartwright, who must learn to live with a career playboy, gossip king, and notorious stretcher of the truth. Shortly after Brittany is hired, Jax spreads a scandalous rumor about her that threatens the best relationship he’s ever had. With two months to go before their big day, Tom Schwartz and Katie’s wedding planning is in full swing; they have even asked Lisa to officiate the ceremony. The two decide to throw a wild joint bachelor/bachelorette party in New Orleans—but the celebration challenges their relationship in ways they never expected, making everyone wonder if the two will keep it together long enough to make it down the aisle! Scheana attempts to manage her friendships within the Stassi/Katie/Kristen BFF triangle, and although Stassi’s officially made her way back into the SUR circle, she wonders if she will ever find love again. Back with a vengeance, Lala has never been one to shy away from vocalizing colorful opinions about her co-workers, and James continues to have an explosive temper, making the pair officially SUR’s biggest outcasts. On the flip side, Tom Sandoval and Ariana find themselves caught in the middle of a SUR war as they try to maintain their friendships with James and Lala before being forced to pick sides.

The last season of “Vanderpump Rules” averaged 2.4MM total viewers and delivered its highest-rated season ever among all key demos, growing +11% among P18–49. Tweet along with @bravotv using #PumpRules and get more exclusive content on the official Facebook page here.

MEET THE HOSTS:

Liza De Guia

Locavore, story-teller and documentarian, Liza de Guia is best known for her James Beard award-winning blog, “food. curated.,” which launched in 2009 and married her two passions of sharing intimate details of people’s lives and creating a home for compelling small-batch food made with love. Her journey of exploring out-of-the-box culinary dishes began after her parents migrated to America from the Philippines. Her father was extremely adventurous with food, always taking the family to eat at exotic places, but struggled to cook in the kitchen. Until one year, a close family friend who happened to also be a well-respected Swiss chef, moved in with Liza’s family for the summer and taught her father everything he needed to know about creating the perfect dish.

Liza’s deep love of food evolved from there, and has continued to grow over the years into the inspirational documentaries she currently produces as a one-woman-show. Featured in several media outlets from The New York Times to the Huffington Post, HLN and Bon Appétit, her work has also earned her an array of accolades including being a five-time nominee for the James Beard Foundation Awards, Saveur’s Best Food Videos winner, the NYC Food Film Fest’s 2012 Food Filmmaker of the Year, a Village Voice Award, as well as a Webby “Honorable Mention” for Best Online Documentary Series. According to Liza, “All good food has a story.”

Chef Russell Jackson

A dynamic and passionate chef, Russell Jackson is one of the forerunners of the underground dining and private supper club movement. Hailing from Los Angeles, Russell graduated at the top of his class from the California Culinary Academy and living up to his motto, he’s made a career of breaking culinary boundaries both in the traditional restaurant world and the underground dining sphere. He’s known as “The Don” of the underground dining world and it’s not uncommon for him to get calls from the organizers of young and newly created supper clubs asking him to critique and mentor their experience.

After graduating from the Academy in 1990, Russell moved back to Los Angeles to open his first restaurant Russell’s. In 2005, he made his boldest move yet and opened SubCulture Dining (SCD), his first underground supper club. In 2008, he sought a new challenge in opening Lafitte, a former San Francisco eatery. Not only has Russell worked in and owned various restaurants throughout his career, he has also appeared on “Iron Chef” and “The Next Food Network Star.” Today, countless restaurant launches later, Russell continues his culinary crusade on both coasts by splitting time between New York and the west coast.

“Going Off the Menu is produced by Citizen Pictures with Frank Matson and Tim McOsker serving as executive producers and Jaymee Johnson serving as Co-executive producer.

Drew Barrymore and Blythe Danner Cast In Guest Starring Roles

NEW YORK – Monday, April 11 – Bravo Medias original scripted comedy series “Odd Mom Out” returns for a second season on Monday, June 20 at 10pm ET/PT. The critically acclaimed series is created by and stars Jill Kargman, who plays a satirical version of herself trying to coexist with the demanding hierarchy of New York’s exclusive Upper East Side ecosystem. Also starring Abby Elliott, Andy Buckley, KK Glick, Sean Kleier, and Joanna Cassidy, this season features even more outrageous antics as the gang tries to redefine themselves and find happiness.

 

Guest starring this season is Drew Barrymore (“Charlie’s Angels,” “Blended”) as Meredith, an irreverent neighbor who survives a historic blizzard with Jill and Andy, and Blythe Danner (“I’ll See You in My Dreams,” “Madoff”) who is cast as Jill’s mom, Sarah Kaplan.

 

This season, Jill decides it’s time to return to her job at the fashion magazine, where she soon butts heads with her former boss—who also happens to be her former nemesis. As Jill tries to reboot her career, Andy takes time off to care for the kids, quickly learning that being Mr. Mom is harder than he thought. Brooke is healing from Lex’s affair by milking him of millions in start-up money for her new passion project, an elegant accessories line. For his part, Lex has returned from Burning Man a reborn “brohemian,” claiming to have a greater conscience and a single-minded determination to win Brooke back. All the while, Vanessa continues to provide a comical constant for Jill, keeping her grounded through the unique trials and tribulations of navigating upscale Manhattan.

 

“Odd Mom Out” marks Bravo’s highest-rated new series launch in 2015. In its premiere season, the show averaged 958,000 total viewers and 568,000 in adults 18-49. In addition, “Odd Mom Out” stands as 2015’s most upscale new scripted comedy series on ad-supported cable, as well as ranking higher than any other new Bravo series for Video On Demand transactions.
