Bravo Pushes Premiere of ‘Shahs of Sunset’ Amid Strike

Facing a crew strike, Bravo Network has delayed the premiere of the fourth season of its reality show, “Shahs of Sunset.”

Bravo has decided to push the premiere date for “Shahs of Sunset” to a later date,” the network said in a statement. “The new airdate has yet to be determined.”

The move came a day after crew members of “Shahs,” which is produced by Ryan Seacrest Prods. for the Bravo Network, shut down post-production work.

The move comes with the fourth season of the series set to premiere on Oct. 13. The crew members are seeking to be represented by the Intl. Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees through Local 700, the Motion Picture Editors Guild.

The union has sent Berne Prods., a Ryan Seacrest Prods. subsidiary and the crew’s employer, a letter requesting an immediate start to contract talks.

A spokeswoman for the production company confirmed that the employees’ letter has been received and that the company has every intention of engaging in a discussion as soon as possible.

IATSE used a similar tactic last month to organize the crew on CBS series “Survivor.”
