Prep-school kids reality show planned

Bravo announced Thursday it has picked up the new docu-series NYC Prep from Stone & Company Entertainment.

The show, which is to debut June 16, follows a group of six affluent teenagers firmly entrenched in Manhattan's social circle, the network said in a news release.

The announcement regarding the show's pick-up was made by Frances Berwick, executive vice president and general manager of Bravo Media.

Bravo continues to intrigue audiences with real-life depictions of relatable characters who live in exclusive worlds, Berwick said in a statement. We'll watch as these teenagers manage the ups and downs of not only being in high school, but what comes along with growing up as part of New York's elite.
