Wednesday, Bravo and Ryan Seacrest Productions announced plans for a new docu-series, “Shahs of Sunset” (working title), which will follow a group of young Persian-American friends who juggle living and working in Los Angeles while balancing the demands of their families and traditions.
The series will showcase the group’s luxurious lifestyles from over-the-top shopping sprees to traditional yet lavish family feasts in their sprawling homes. Unafraid to flaunt their designer clothing, tricked-out cars and boisterous personalities, spending money is no foreign concept to these young socialites but also treasure the value of family and Persian traditions.
“We’re pleased to bring this exciting new story of a distinct and compelling community of Los Angeles to the Bravo audience, ” said Ryan, who will serve as executive producer of the show. “The series will offer rich characters and relatable storylines about everyday life — love, work, friendship and family — steeped in a diverse culture, which is wildly entertaining and fun.”
More boring rich people with time on their hands. So, will the Persian American community get the “Jersey Shore” treatment? Or will Ryan make a point of avoiding stereotypes? Hmmmm.
