Because we all need another reality show to add to our viewing schedules, the Bravo network (known for its millions of Real Housewives shows) and Ryan Seacrest are teaming up to make a new one, this time starring Persian-Americans living in affluent Los Angeles neighborhoods.
A while back, rumors surfaced that the production company behind Jersey Shore might be trying to create a quasi-spinoff based on the wildly popular MTV series, but it seems that Seacrest and Bravo have swooped in to take over the idea.
Tentatively titled Shahs Of Sunset, the series, via a Bravo-issued statement, has the following description going for it: "Armed with chromed-out cars, logo-ridden purses and designer outfits, they've got it and they're not afraid to flaunt it."
No word on when the series will begin production, but it's safe to say that they've got a reality TV gem on their hands with this one. You know you'll be watching.
