Bravo prepping NY housewives show

'Manhattan Moms' greenlit by NBC Universal

Bravo is moving from housewives in Orange County to socialites in Gotham.

NBC U net has greenlit “Manhattan Moms,” a series examining the relationships and foibles of upper-middle-class mothers as they shuttle between their professional and personal lives in the city and their recreational lives in the Hamptons.

Bravo exec veep of programming and production Frances Berwick called the project “a fly-on-the-wall glimpse into the privileged lives of New York’s wealthy socialites.”

Production on “Moms” is under way in Gotham; the net said it hasn’t decided when it will air the series. Bravo is prepping for a big fall, with the fourth season of “Project Runway” debuting in November.

Concept of depicting the private lives of women who occupy the elite rung on the class ladder has served Bravo well with “The Real Housewives of Orange County,” which has been renewed for a third season and become a Bravo mainstay.

Lenid Rolov, who’s also involved in the net’s “Hey Paula” and “Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List,” is exec producing “Moms.” Ricochet Television produces.
