The production team behind Bravo’s reality smash Real Housewives franchise are working on an all-male spinoff of the hit series.
Evolution Media has teamed up with The Real Housewives of Atlanta casting producer Princess Banton-Lofters, who will also serve as executive producer of the tentatively titled Boys Club: ATL, according to Broadcasting & Cable.
“We’d obviously admired from afar what Princess did with The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and when she approached us with this idea, it was a slam dunk,” says Evolution president Douglas Ross — who previously worked on Season One of Fear Factor and CBS’ Big Brother. “Men’s lives are as dramatic and interesting as their female counterparts.”
Boys Club: ATL will be based and filmed in the Atlanta area. No word yet on casting or if network Bravo will pick up the series. LOGO, MTV’s gay-centric television network, is currently shooting an New York-based all-gay version of the Housewives franchise called Kept.
