Bravo picks up 11 new series -- and welcomes back some familiar faces

Brad Bravo announced Wednesday that it is picking up 11 new series for 2011-12, as well as ordering new seasons of five current shows.

Many of the new series are effectively spin-offs of existing shows, featuring "Bravolebrities":

“It’s a Brad Brad World” follows former Rachel Zoe minion-turned-solo-stylist Brad Goreski;  “Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis” is a home design show from the star of Bravo's "Flipping Out";  and “Mad Fashion” is a reality show following former-“Project Runway” designer Chris March.

In the new version of "Tabatha Takes Over," hair stylist Tabatha Coffey stretches her show's territory: instead of just telling off (and helping out) salon owners, she will now lend her acumen to all kinds of small-business owners. And the L.A.-based real-estate reality series “Million Dollar Listing” will expand its sassy franchise with a N.Y. edition.

Other new reality pickups announced include The Therapists” (the lives of L.A. therapists); "Most Eligible: Dallas” (Texas socialites); "Miss Advised" (three single relationship experts); "Ready to Wear" (New York fashionistas working in a second-hand clothing store); "Roble and Co." (Brooklyn caterers); and "Project Soulmate" (a New York matchmaker).

In advance of its upfront tonight, Bravo also announced that it is renewing several series, with new seasons for “Top Chef Just Desserts,” “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” “Bethenny Ever After” and “The Real Housewives of Atlanta.”

"Rocco's Dinner Party" -- with celebrity chef Rocco DiSpirito -- was previously announced and will join Bravo's schedule this summer.
