Magical Elves teams with Quintessentially on reality skein
Having conquered fashion, “Project Runway” exec producers Jane Lipsitz and Dan Cutforth have turned their attention to the lifestyles of the rich and famous.Lipsitz and Cutforth’s Magical Elves is partnering with Quintessentially, a private members’ club and concierge service, on a pair of series projects that reveal the inner workings of the company and the lengths to which its employees will go to accommodate high-end clientele. Potential skeins would follow staffers as they fulfill last-minute requests for tickets to sold-out shows, secure vacation yachts without notice and buy extravagant gifts — such as a living llama — for the VIPs. “We are always drawn to colorful stories and characters in our series,” Lipsitz said. “The world of Quintessentially’s business offers a unique perspective on the current cultural obsession with the luxury lifestyle and a rich environment for compelling storytelling.” Magical Elves is behind TV competition skeins such as NBC’s “Last Comic Standing” and “Treasure Hunters” and Bravo’s “Runway,” “Top Chef” and “Project Greenlight.”
