Bravo is making more headway into original scripted programming, as this morning the network greenlit their second series, ‘Odd Mom Out.’
As first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, the comedy series stars author and fashion expert Jill Kargman and is based on her life experience of navigating an absurd world of super-rich and out-of-touch mothers in New York’s Upper East Side.
The writer will play a version of herself in this satirical and pointed series, in which her attempts to offset the elitist and the trend-following, she has become the titular odd mother out. The story is based on her novel ‘Momzillas,’ which was published in 2007.
Kargman’s extensive writing credits include freelance work for MTV programs, Vogue, Elle, and Harper’s Bazaar, as well as an optioned novel in 'Wolves in Chic Clothing' and a screenplay credit for the 2000 Sundance film ‘Intern,’ which she co-wrote with frequent writing partner Carrie Karasyov.
The single-camera comedy will be Bravo’s first half-hour offering; an episode count and premiere date have yet to be determined. Ken Druckerman and Banks Tarver (‘Mob Wives’) will executive produce alongside Kargman.
This news comes just two months after Bravo announced their first original scripted series, ‘Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce’ from Marti Noxon and starring Lisa Edelstein, set to air in 2015.
In addition to the pair of new scripted series, Bravo also announced the 15 new and 16 returning shows to their lineup. This includes a New York City-based singles show called ‘100 Dates’ and the self-explanatory ‘Friends to Lovers?’ The full slate can be seen on their website at BravoTV.
