Bravo announces series pick-up of “Top Designer” (working title), which was previously announced as a series in development under the “Top Decorator” title. Bravo has partnered with Stone & Company Entertainment to bring viewers this new one-hour ten episode competition series searching for America’s next great interior designer.
Through a series of weekly pressure-filled challenges testing creativity, ingenuity and interpersonal skills, contestants will be competing for cash to start their own design firm and a spot in one of New York’s finest designer showcases. Contestants will be drawn together from all walks of life and will possess a range of skills and training. The announcement was made by Frances Berwick, EVP, Programming & Production, Bravo.
“Bravo’s critically acclaimed reality competition shows that go inside creative professions have paved the way for the competitive spirit to thrive in an even more universal setting – the home,” said Berwick. “This creative new series combines the fast-paced and upscale world of interior design with high pressure and entertaining competition.”
With casting currently underway, trained professional interior designers, self-taught aspiring designers, and non-professional artists with a passion for interior design are invited to meet with “Top Designer” casting producers.
