Andre Leon Talley of Vogue to Returns on TV with a Fashion reality show
Bravo has announced that it is adding seven projects to its development slate, including Andre Leon Talley and expanding its lifestyle programming with series focusing on fashion, real estate, entrepreneurship and relationships.
Most notably, Vogue contributing editor Andre Leon Talley could make his return to reality TV after leaving The CW’s America’s Next Top Model. He will usher four emerging fashion-design teams in creating, showing and selling a collection on the now-titled Fashion Stories of NYC. Andre Leon Talley’s getting ready for prime time. Apparently holding down a post as editor-at-large at Vogue isn’t enough for the larger-than-life personality.
On St Valentine’s Day, February 14, Vogue contributing editor and fashion icon Andre Leon Talley was honored during the EMERGE! fashion show, which was held at the Broad Street Ballroom in lower Manhattan.
Another series that stands out as a departure for Bravo focuses on Orange County doctors who make house calls for their wealthy patients. Under the working title MD: OC, the show, says Bravo, is a “real life Royal Pains,” referring to the USA series set in the Hamptons.
“Bravo is focused on developing and launching breakthrough programming in diverse genres and formats and teaming up with big-name talent who are experts in their field,” Bravo development vp Eli Lehrer says. “This development slate embraces the network’s pop-culture brand and allows us to explore some new and exciting worlds for our affluent and engaged audience.”
