Bravo is no slouch in the whetting one’s appetite department. Along with the news yesterday that Randi “Sister of Mark, Singer of Songs” Zuckerberg would be the executive producer of a new reality show, the House That Andy Cohen Built also released a short, but tantalizing preview wherein geeks were likened to rock stars and Silicon Valley to high school, “but it’s only the smart kids and everyone has a lot of money.” Sold! Sign us up for the schadenfreude when reality TV’s potent cocktail of ambition, desperation, and actual cocktails collides.
Thankfully, Drew Olanoff at The Next Web was kind enough to single out some of the potential players so we can start doing our due diligence. According to Mr. Olanoff the show will “star” The Next Web’s Silicon Valley video director Hermione Way. Her brother Ben Way, founder of The Rainmakers, Kim Taylor, digital director at Ampush Media, and Dwight Crow, founder of Carsabi.com also all appear in the preview.
A rep for Bravo told Betabeat that the cast is “not confirmed,” emphasizing that, “Randi is not in the show.” However, an NBC affiliate (Bravo is owned by NBCUniversal) also reported the same stars, along with Marcus Lovingood, founder of Futureleap. A Facebook post from Erin Kanaley Famularo, who used to work in consumer marketing at Facebook and now works as director of production at Ms. Zuckerberg’s R to Z Media, seems to indicate that David Murray, who has worked at Google, Raptr, and Atari, will likewise be joining the cast. “Exciting! We can finally talk about this,” wrote Ms. Famularo.
So let’s make their acquaintance, shall we?
