As per the network, it will be an “imaginative docu-series, a cast of modern women will be sent back to the 1960s to experience the ultimate era of the American Housewife.”
When it comes to radical twists and entertaining drama, Bravo's Real Housewives has never disappointed. But this upcoming season get's a lot more serious with the twists it has decided to bring in. Say hello to the Real Housewives gone all retro!
Bravo, The NBCU cable network's slate of eight new series includes the “Real Housewives of the 1960s,” an “imaginative docu-series, a cast of modern women will be sent back to the 1960s to experience the ultimate era of the American Housewife,” revealed Rachel Smith, senior vice president development, Bravo Media.
The docu-series' moniker being the same might not ring that hard, but it's going to be produced by the production company Wall to Wall and its executive producers Leanne Klein and Rob White, both are new to the franchise - meaning one can't exactly pinpoint how predictable the show is going to be, or what to expect.
The network's description of the series synopsis reads: "In this imaginative docu-series, a cast of modern women will be sent back to the 1960s to experience the ultimate era of the American Housewife. Living in a cul-de-sac of authentic Sixties homes, these women and their families will be transported back into a traditional decade where men made the money, women made the home, and teenagers actually did as they were told. In living through the ‘golden age’ of Sixties family life, the cast will discover if more time spent together, traditional husband and wife roles, and no digital distractions might actually improve their chaotic lives and even fix their relationships."
What's even more striking is the vast assortment of other series set to appear on the network. There's a series about The Breakfast Club host DJ Envy, called "Gold With Envy", another strange multigenerational prank show by the name "Your Shitty Family, and of course, C-list celebrities getting forced to live in the woods, on a show called Pampers Campers, as reported by The Wrap.
But worry not Housewives fans. The upcoming retro edition does seem quite promising in terms of all the drama that followers have grown to get hooked on to over the years. What's better? No modern day socializing imposed.
