Will Bravo’s New Scripted Show Feature a Prancing Queen?

Knowing its audience doesn’t just mean enlisting Kathy Griffin to fill half its programming slate while relying on catty housewives with gay appeal. NBC Universal’s Bravo is developing a show that will actually have a real life gay in it! And we don’t mean Sad Brad from The Real Housewives of New York City. The upcoming Blueprint centers around two BFFs who own an architecture and interior design company in New York; one of ’em is straight, the other gay. But here’s the twist: This is not a reality show! Indeed, Blueprint is one of two scripted dramas the network will unveil — a stark departure from bread and butter series like My Life On The D-List, Real Housewives, Top Chef, and the network-swapped Project Runway. But given the setting — an interior design firm — we’re preparing ourselves for plenty of fabulous stereotypes marketed to us as brilliant, progressive programming.

    Or maybe the straight guy is the interior designer and the gay guy is the architect!

    you’re right: there are certainly NO gay decorators.
    mouth, meet gift-horse.

    really- it is bravo, what do you want?
    only gay people and their friends watch it anyways- I am not to worried about our image. I rather see a flaming interior decorator, rich spoiled housewives any day.

    This show sounds very interesting. I never did catch on to watching the suburban whores being passed off as lonely house wife garbage that floods tv nowadays. That ‘entertainment’ is what drove me to the History/Discovery/Spike channels. Yes, I do find men slamming and kneeing each other more entertaining than some 40th something slut trying to woo a hideously untalented young actor to bed.

    I am really shocked LOGO did not follow in the footsteps of that trash and developed one based on queens living out in Falls Church or West Hollywood, or did they and I channel surfed right past it?
