Bravo to launch doc series 'The Real Housewives Of Orange County'

MUMBAI: US media conglomerate NBC Universal's cable network Bravo will premiere The Real Housewives of Orange County later this year.

This documentary series provides exclusive access to five families who live in one of the wealthiest planned communities in the US. The seven-episode series focusses on five real-life housewives living in a protected Southern California enclave, exposing the excitement, extravagance and everyday drama that exists in their unscripted and unrehearsed lives.

The show is no doubt aiming to take advantage of the viewer interest generated by the drama show The OC which airs in India on Star World and Zee Cafe.

Bravo president Lauren Zalaznick says, "Bravo continues to innovate in the reality TV genre with this riveting series exploring the complicated daily lives of five privileged women and their families. From Peyton Place to Desperate Housewives, viewers have been riveted by the fictionalised versions of such lifestyles on television. Now, here is a series that depicts real-life 'desperate' housewives with an authentic look at their compelling day-to-day drama."

The Real Housewives of Orange County will follow five sophisticated women and their families who lead glamorous lives in a picturesque Southern California gated community where the average home has a $1.6 million price tag and residents include CEOs and retired professional athletes. Orange County "housewives" Kimberly, Jeana, Vicki, Lauri and Jo are used to the good life and will do everything they can to hang on to it.

The women each have their own personal story to share, and they've granted Bravo an all-access pass into their lives, families, friendships, careers, and homes. From diamond parties to Botox sessions to the stress of having a high-powered career, the women take viewers along for the ride and into their real-life dramas that show how life isn't always perfect behind the gates. Just what lies beneath the surface of this "perfect" community?

The women mostly live the good life, but also represent the modern-day version of the happy housewife, which today includes juggling the challenges of a stressful career with a busy family life. These women are sexy, sophisticated, and know how to turn heads, set trends, and keep up appearances in one of the most stylish communities in the US.
