Bravo Upfronts Reveal New Programming

Bravo has been busy busy and has lots of new goodies coming up:

The Fashion Show: Isaac Mizrahi and Destiny's Child's Kelly Rowland host as 15 designers compete in a weekly runway show (premiering May 7) judged by a studio audience. Each week's winning garment goes on sale to viewers online, and a popular vote picks the final victor, American Idol-style.

Launch My Line: Previously announced as Celebrity Sew-Off, this other fashion competition will pair established designers with "pop culture notables" -- stylists, music producers, choreographers, and whatnot -- who've always wanted to have their own fashion line. The winner will, yes, get his or her own line.

American Artist: Basically, Top Chef/Project Runway for artists, produced by Sarah Jessica Parker, aiming to "do for art what we've done for food, which is make it accessible," says programming exec Andy Cohen.

Currently in development are The Secret Lives of Supermodels, starring Mariel Hemingway and Maggie Rizer, and a show following former Project Runway contestant Laura Bennett. Sounds like Bravo will be an entertaining channel to watch in the year to come.
