Bravo slates debuts of two new series
September 21, 2012
Bravo has two new reality series on tap for fall, both focused on the internet.
On Nov. 5 the network will debut "Silicon Valley Start-Ups," following young professionals as they try to come up with the next big internet idea. Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg's sister Randi produces the show.
Two nights later, on Nov. 7, Bravo will roll out "LOLwork," following a company that puts grammatically incorrect captions on photos of pets and animals, many of which go viral online.
Bravo also has four returning shows slated to premiere new seasons during the first half of November: "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" on Nov. 4; "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" on Nov. 5; "Top Chef: Seattle" on Nov. 7' and "Million Dollar Decorators" on Nov. 13.
Meanwhile, in other programming, A&E on Oct. 6 will begin new seasons of "Parking Wars" and "Billy the Exterminator," with two episodes of "Parking" in the 9 p.m. hour and two episodes of "Billy" starting at 10.
Spike TV has ordered 10 episodes of "Urban Tarzan," about a man who captures and relocates exotic animals.
And on broadcast, PBS will premiere the 11th season of "Ask This Old House" on Oct. 4 with the first of 26 new episodes. Among those giving homeowners tips this season are host Kevin O'Connor, general contractor Tom Silva, landscape contractor Roger Cook and plumbing and heating expert Richard Trethewey.
