The CW has picked up an untitled reality series starring New York socialite Tinsley Mortimer.
Half-hour project will be paired with the net’s other just-ordered reality docuseries, “Fly Girls,” which is also a half-hour. Like “Fly Girls,” the Mortimer series has been given an eight-episode order.
Glassman Media (“Momma’s Boys”) is behind the show; Andrew Glassman will exec produce. Mortimer, Glassman and Mike Aho created the project.
Series will follow Mortimer, currently embroiled in a high-profile divorce, as she hits the New York scene.
The daughter of real estate mogul George Riley Mercer and interior designer Dale Mercer, Mortimer frequently appears in the New York social pages. She has designed a line of handbags and clothing, among other ventures.
She’s also familiar to CW viewers, having appeared in an episode of “Gossip Girl.”
Glassman Media is parked at IMG, where it has a multiyear deal. Glassman’s other credits include “Average Joe,” “Three Wishes” and “National Bingo Night.”
