It's official (like we didn't know) Bravo announces Most Eligible Dallas

Today, Bravo announced its most ambitious programming slate in its history with 11 new series pickups and five returning shows for its 2011-12 schedule.  Among them was "Most Eligible Dallas".

Bravo describes the show thusly:

They're young, they're hot, they're single – they're Dallas' Most Eligible. From beauty queens to pro-football players, this group of Texas socialites puts NY and LA nightlife to shame. It's true what they say, everything's bigger in Texas – including the drama especially when it comes to dating. Some are looking for true love while others have perfected the art of the one-night stand, and somehow their love lives have all crossed paths at one time or another. Dallas serves as the sexy backdrop for this jaw-dropping docu-series that follows a group of successful friends living it up like only Texas socialites can.

Landon Ledford, Nell Skylar (who I'm told is not a primary cast member), Glenn Pakulak, Courtney Kerr,  
Daylon Periera and Tara Harper. Drew Ginsburg and Matt Nordgren are in the cast but not pictured.

A "jaw-dropping docu-series". Huh. That's a tall order.  And although they haven't announced the cast... well, I already gave you all that scoop ages ago!

They have been filming all over town.  Bread Winners, fashion shows, charity galas, the Grapevine Bar... even if the show stinks it will be fun to recognize all of the places they deem as "hot spots" around town.   Like I've said before, it's a train wreck in the making and I can't wait to watch.

The Hollywood Reporter reported that the new lineup will include many faces familiar to Bravo viewers including Jeff Lewis (Flipping Out), Brad Goreski (Rachel Zoe’s former assistant) and Chris March (Project Runway) as well as a New York version of Million Dollar Listing.  The network has also ordered second seasons of Top Chef Just Desserts, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills; a third season of Bethenny Ever After and fourth seasons of The Real Housewives of Atlanta -- the net’s top-rated Housewives franchise which I find CRAZY -- and Tabatha’s Salon Takeover.
