With seemingly countless shows — both real and scripted — about various kinds of wives already dotting the TV landscape, now comes word that casting is under way for a new show about wives, "Wall $treet Wives," reports The New York Times.
The reality show seems inspired by Bravo’s "Real Housewives" franchise, VH1’s "Basketball Wives" and others, but producers Devon Fleming and Sammi Mendenhall, who are shopping the show to the networks, say they are trying to avoid what Fleming called the "ugly cat-fight scenario" story lines that some nets are asking for.
Mendenhall said the focus of the new show is more high-brow. "These [women] are not idiots,” Mendenhall said. “These are the intelligent women who hold it down. Some of them have MBAs.”
Mendenhall’s credits include MTV’s "16 and Pregnant" as well as History Channel’s "Food Tech."
