The Real Housewives of Atlanta must be bringing in boatloads of cash for Bravo TV because it was recently announced that the network has just granted approval for production to begin on two new Atlanta-based reality shows.
One of the shows titled Taking Atlanta will follow the lives of a group of young professionals as they pursue careers in fashion, real estate, music, and hospitality. The storyline is also said to depict the characters’ lively social lives in addition to their turbulent family lives. Sounds like the perfect recipe for a great reality show to me. The show is reported to be produced by NFGTV along with Monami Entertainment. Sound familiar? Those are the same masterminds behind VH1’s Love and Hip Hop franchise, which is why the executive producers are said to be Mona Scott-Young, Toby Barraud and Stefan Springman.
The second show, Married to Medicine, will highlight the lives of stylish and successful women whose lives are somehow involved with medicine, whether they are doctors themselves or married to doctors. The show is said to have much drama accented with a touch of “southern flair.” So real medicine housewives of Altanta? This show is being produced by FremantleMedia North America and is being developed by Purveyors of Pop with Matt Anderson. Nate Green and Matty Buss are said to be the executive producers.
This is most likely an excellent move for Bravo TV considering the fact that The Real Housewives of Atlanta is the highest-rated show out of all the other series in the Real Housewives franchise.
It has also been reported that Kim Zolciak’s Don’t Be Tardy spin-off has been renewed for a second season, which will explore Kim and Kroy’s relationship as they move beyond the honeymoon phase of their marriage and delve into real life. At least that means she won’t be the annoying one on RHOA anymore.
What do you think about the concepts for these new shows? Will you be checking them out when they air?
