Bravo to Develop Six New Unscripted Series, Including ‘Million Dollar Home Hacks’

Bravo will add to their robust slate of unscripted series with the development of six new shows, Variety has learned.

Among those six are real estate shows “Million Dollar Home Hacks” and “Flippin’ Exes,” along with the re-creation series “High School Stories.”

Bravo’s incredible equity in the high-end real estate space allows us to explore the biggest characters and most aspirational lifestyles, which are both key differentiators in this crowded landscape,” said Rachel Smith, Bravo’s senior vice president of development. “In addition, with a large stable of original series that continue to grow in the key demos, we’re able to take big swings in new spaces across many genres, and we’re excited to get these projects off the ground.”

“Million Dollar Home Hacks”
