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.
