We thought that with the birth of her baby and her new company RtoZ Media, famous Facebook sibling Randi Zuckerberg was busy enough–but apparently we thought wrong. In a press release today, Bravo announced a list of new shows, including one produced by Ms. Zuckerberg with the working title Silicon Valley.
Ms. Zuckerberg’s show is part of Bravo’s attempt to better position itself as an innovative channel dedicated to digitally savvy, breakthrough programming. According to the release, the show will put startup kids striving for tech success in the spotlight. “Teaming up with internet entrepreneur Randi Zuckerberg, Bravo captures the intertwining lives of young professionals on the path to becoming Silicon Valley’s next great success stories,” it reads.
The new lineup also includes a show called “Huh?,” which will follow the innerworkings of Ben Huh and his staff at icanhascheezburger, because Bravo exists in a time fissure where it’s still 2006.
Bravo’s shows aren’t exactly highbrow, but they definitely occupy a specific part of our cultural zeitgeist that we liken to a car crash you can’t look away from. Will Ms. Zuckerberg’s show be a professional high speed collision, or will her executive producer role allow her to have more control over the image the show projects?
Part of us hopes Silicon Valley will be like the short-lived NYC Prep meets Real Housewives, with lots of backstabbing and gossiping and crying over text messages. ”Tom said that Cory told him that Mark said my company will never be as good as his!” How juicy would that be?
