Bravo orders up real-life 'Gossip Girl' reality series 'NYC Prep'

Nycprep Is a real-life “Gossip Girl” website next?

Taking a cue from the CW’s successful drama, Bravo has ordered the similarly prep school-set documentary series “NYC Prep.” The show will premiere Tuesday, June 16 and take over the Tuesday at 10 p.m. time slot currently occupied by “The Real Housewives’” franchise.

Similar to the book series-turned-TV show, “NYC Prep” will follow six high school students who are “firmly entrenched in Manhattan’s social circle,” said Bravo executive vice president and general manager Frances Berwick.

The programming move follows many successful docu-series based on fictional TV hits, such as “Laguna Beach” and “The O.C.” and Bravo’s own “The Real Housewives” franchise, loosely based on “Desperate Housewives.”

 “Bravo continues to intrigue audiences with real-life depictions of relatable characters who live in exclusive worlds,” Berwick said.

 “NYC Prep” is produced by Stone & Company Entertainment, which also produces the Bravo program “Tim Gunn’s Guide to Style.”

These kids are so disappointing. No sex appeal, no fashion sense, just a bunch of ugly mugs. Couldn't they find any hot bitchy kids? That Blair Waldorf girl is all wrong.

I’m bummed. In case you’re interested - my thoughts: http://squareeyes.blinkx.com/2009/04/get-prepped-real-life-gossip-girl-coming-soon/
