Get ready to laugh some more, as Bravo is making way for two new scripted pilots: My So Called Wife and True Fiction. My So Called Wife follows a female con artist who runs into some unexpected trouble when she falls for her latest mark and some former flames come looking for her. The series comes from Adam Brooks (Definitely, Maybe) and Paul Adelstein (Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce). Meanwhile True Fiction is about a East Coast college professor who steals her dead student's manuscript hoping to land a hit of her own. It comes courtesy of Brian Dannelly and Michael Urban (Saved). Pilots will be shot for both series.
“As Bravo expands in the scripted space, we are committed to exploring worlds and characters that are distinctly different from our established slate,” Lara Spotts, Senior Vice President of Development for Bravo Media, said. “My So Called Wife and True Fiction take us on wild rides as dramatic as they are funny — with one being a quest to uncover the truth and the other a mission to hide it at all costs.”
“Joining Bravo on their journey into scripted programming with Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce has been an amazing experience as we watched the audience connect with characters we love,” Dawn Olmstead, Executive Vice President, Development, Universal Cable Productions, added in a statement. “We are excited to partner once again with Bravo to deliver distinctive and thought-provoking storytelling, this time with the stellar teams of Brian Dannelly and Michael Urban behind True Fiction plus Adam Brooks and Paul Adelstein on My So Called Wife.”
My So Called Wife and True Fiction join Bravo's other scripted series, Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce and Odd Mom Out, both of which are slated to come back for second seasons. Check out some highlights from each of those shows, below.
