Ryan Seacrest has already proved that any TV show he puts his hands on turns to gold ... and now the media mogul is expanding his empire!
The American Idol host, who is teaming up with Bravo, is producing a new series tentatively called Shahs of Sunset ... focusing on Persian-American 20-somethings who are living opulent lives. Think Jersey Shore, but swap Italians for Persians.
As for what the show will be about, Seacrest says:
- "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.â€
Sounds like a blast! Read what Bravo executive vice president Andy Cohen said about teaming up with Seacrest ... after the jump.
When asked about the Shahs of Sunset, Andy Cohen says;
- "The group of friends featured in our show is colorful, affluent and fun. Ryan and his team understand what our viewers want to see and when they brought us this group we responded immediately."
