Bravo TV Greenlights 2 New Atlanta-Based Reality Series (I'm Sorry)

I preface with the "I'm sorry" line, but based on the descriptions of each, maybe these actually might not be as trashy as some other reality TV series; then again, I wouldn't really know (although I've heard), because I tend to keep my distance from reality TV in general.

I preface with the "I'm sorry" line, but based on the descriptions of each, maybe these actually might not be as trashy as some other reality TV series; then again, I wouldn't really know (although I've heard), because I tend to keep my distance from reality TV in general.

Accoring to the press release from Bravo, the two new Hotlanta-based series will be:

Married to Medicine:

"Married to Medicine" follows a group of successful and educated women, including doctors and wives of doctors, who are connected to the world of medicine in Atlanta. Whether delivering babies in Louboutins or rushing off to galas in Buckhead, these women do everything with style, drama, and of course, southern flair. Produced by FremantleMedia North America and developed by Purveyors of Pop with Matt Anderson, Nate Green and Maty Buss serving as Executive Producers. 

- Taking Atlanta:

"Taking Atlanta" tracks the city's next-generation movers and shakers as they make their mark in the glamorous arenas of fashion, music, hospitality and real estate while enjoying the city's sizzling social scene and balancing the demands of their tumultuous family situations. Produced by NFGTV and Monami Entertainment with Toby Barraud, Stefan Springman and Mona Scott-Young serving as Executive Producers.

Of course, just because both are set in Atlanta, doesn't necessarily imply that the cast of each will comprise of black people, BUT I'm sure some of them will most certainly be black.

Bravo is already (and has been) home to so many reality TV series, including the popular Housewives franchise (the Atlanta Wives in the photo above). So I expect these to be somewhat similar in style and structure.
