In an exclusive story our friends at Deadline.com write of a new series in development at NBC that will be focused on the style of classic Hollywood films, "or a celebrity’s signature style (think Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant, Grace Kelly, Warren Beatty, etc.)."
Here's the giveaway. The story says, "Costume designer Janie Bryant -- best known for 'Mad Men' and her Emmy-winning work on HBO's 'Deadwood' -- is in development on a new design competition series with E.J. Johnston and James Deutch, co-creators of NBC’s fashion competition series 'Fashion Star.'"
The story continues, "In the new show -- working title 'Janie Bryant’s Hollywood' -- wannabe designers will be given a different challenge each week to create a garment in the style of a classic Hollywood film, or a celebrity’s signature style (think Audrey Hepburn, Cary Grant, Grace Kelly, Warren Beatty, etc.). Bryant and the show’s judges will decide each week who best executed the challenge."
The show is being pitched to various cable outlets, the story says, including Bravo, E! and Lifetime.
