Bravo hires Wang as head of scripted fare

Cabler looking to move beyond reality-only in 2013

Bravo has brought in Andrew Wang to fill the newly created post of VP of scripted development and production.

Wang arrives from Alloy Entertainment and will be based in Los Angeles, reporting to Eli Lehrer, VP of development and original programming. At Allow, Wang helped create CW series “Gossip Girl,” “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Secret Circle.”

NBCUniversal cabler, which has consistently filled its slate with reality staples such as the “Real Housewives” franchise,” is looking to expand into scripted fare beginning next year. Net hopes to have at least one or two scripted shows on the air to help balance its reality heavy programming slate.

“Bravo’s goal is to expand our diverse slate and bring our brand and everything it represents into the world of scripted programming,” said Lehrer.
