We learn via Variety today that the makers of Project Runway and Top Chef have started pre-production on the next new widget: America’s Next Top Producer. Interesting thing is that it will not be on Bravo or the CW, but on the TV Guide Channel. TV Guide Channel, you say? Yes, it’s the channel with the TV Guide schedule on bottom and currently a looped infomercial for Hip Hop Abs. (To order call 1-800-237-5520.)
Methinks Bravo finally knew when to pull the plug on this concept—if Top Design is any indication. And remember, reality superfans, we have yet to know the joys of Top Hair.
