Jul 21, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Bravo is readying a new show about a group of super-wealthy Persian-Americans in Southern California tentatively called "Shahs of Sunset," reports B&C.

The reality TV program comes from Ryan Seacrest Productions and is described as a docu-series set in the opulent world of Rodeo Drive and Beverly Hills.

According to Andy Cohen, executive VP of original programming and development for Bravo, "The Persian-American community in Los Angeles is a perfect fit for Bravo’s next great docu-series. The group of friends featured in our show are 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. There’s not a show like it on TV."


  1. I’m no expert, but Persians aren’t Arabs. They are different ethnic groups.

  2. Someone at TVWeek needs to do their research before writing an article…Persians are not Arabs.

  3. Hi Russ. Hi Sarah. Right you are. We apologize, and have corrected it in the story and headline. (We originally had written Arab-Americans.)
