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.”

Read the full list of series in development below.

“Center Staged”

Before a multi-million dollar house goes on the market, stagers are hired to furnish the space so that it appeals to the most demanding and specific of buyers. The series will follow married couple Adair Curtis and Jason Bolden, who are the go-to stagers for such estates in California.

“Million Dollar Home Hacks”
Produced by Shed Media and Wall to Wall Media with Pam Healey, Lisa Shannon and Jeremy Dear as executive producers

“Welcome to America”
Produced by Our House Media with Simon Lloyd and Joe Houilhan as executive producers.

This series takes a small American town, with demographics that haven’t changed in centuries, and shakes up the population to reflect different parts of the country. Key members of the town will voluntarily leave for one month, and moving in will be a diverse group who will step into the vacated lives of the locals.
