Bravo is renewing four of its reality series and tacking three new ones onto its roster.
Fans of “Southern Charm,” “Shahs of Sunset” and “Million Dollar Listing New York” have cause to rejoice, as they’ve all been given the go-ahead for another season. The new series ordered are “First Family of Hip Hop,” “Relative Success with Tabatha” and “Southern Charm Savannah,” an expansion of the “Southern Charm” franchise.
“First Family of Hip Hop” follows the son and grandchildren of Sylvia Robinson, the woman who founded Sugar Hill Records and gave the world “Rapper’s Delight.” Sugar Hill Records has fallen on hard times, and squabbling family members aren’t doing the business any favors, but the Robinsons are looking to reclaim their rightful place in the music industry. “First Family” is produced by Left/Right and Mad Fusion. Banks Tarver, Ken Druckerman and Anneka Jones serve as executive producers for Left/Right; Danielle Medina is exec producer for Mad Fusion. Ashley M. Buie serves as exec producer and Glenda N. Cox is a co-executive producer.
The Robinsons might be prime candidates for “Relative Success with Tabatha,” which takes the allergic to nonsense Tabatha Coffey and gives her family-run businesses to fix. Regular businesses can be tough, but mixing in family feuds and daddy issues adds on another several degrees of difficulty. “Relative Success” is produced by Lime Productions for All3 Media, with Gregory J. Lipstone, Kate Little, Clare Poyser, Spike Van Briesen, Andrew Perry and Paul Osborne serving as exec producers.
“Southern Charm Savannah” capitalizes on America’s fascination with the South — specifically, with the posh high-society culture that still remains, where kids learn to drive boats before cars. The Savannah installment of “Southern Charm” will center around six lifelong friends as they love and fight in a place steeped in history. “Southern Charm Savannah” is produced by Haymaker Productions with Aaron Rothman, Irad Eyal, Sara Nichols, Luke Neslage and Jessica Chesler serving as executive producers. Jason Weinberg, Bryan Kestner and Whitney Sudler-Smith also serve as exec producers.
