Bravo’s Zalaznick: ‘Quirky and Creative’

Oct 31, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Lauren Zalaznick, the boss of Bravo Media, whose gray hair is sometime untamed and has toenails painted canary yellow, takes the business of being hip very seriously, according to a story in Sunday’s New York Times. “Since she arrived at Bravo four years ago, Zalaznick has been polishing the genre of reality TV to a high sheen, taking its contestants off primitive islands and placing them squarely in sophisticated corners of cities like New York and Los Angeles,” the paper says. Her boss, NBC Universal CEO Jeff Zucker, called Zalaznick “quirky and creative,” but insists she want to succeed within the company’s corporate environment. “She’ll roll her eyes and complain about the bureaucracy and wonder why she has to make another command performance — and by the way, she’s first in line to make the command performance. And she’s always great about it. She loves to be on that stage — she loves center stage,” Zucker tells the paper. Bravo also announced new projects in development, TelevisionWeek says.
