LOS ANGELES (TheWrap.com) – Bravo Media is undergoing a surge in original programming, and has added six new projects to its development slate, the company said Thursday.

The projects range from a series revolving around male models to a show that centers on two “infectious” best friends.

“Bravo is moving full speed ahead to ramp up our diverse development slate and bring our highly engaged audience even more breakthrough original programming,” Eli Lehrer, Vice President of Development for Bravo, said of the half-dozen projects.

“Untitled Male Model Project,” which is being produced by Done and Done Productions with Adam DiVello (“The Hills,” “The City”) serving as executive producer. The series will follow “some of the most successful men in the world of male modeling try to make the most of this extremely high paying profession with a very short shelf life.”

On “Tone it Up,” meanwhile, “two infectious best friends and roommates become the unlikely ‘it girls’ of the fitness industry after launching their popular Tone It Up website.”

Also on the production roster: “The Gold Coast,” about a group of women who move back in with their parents on the Gold Coast of Long Island after graduating from New York University; “Heirs of Palm Beach,” about privileged offspring of the rich who move in an “elite social scene where membership has its privileges and pitfalls”; “Shop With Stella,” in which a trio of pals attempt to launch a start-up fashion website; and “Splitsville,” which will center on high-profile divorce lawyers.
