The Reliable Source has received an exclusive sneak peek at the potential casting list for a new Washington reality show. The “docu-series,” which is being produced by Manhattan-based Leftfield Pictures, is rumored to be a D.C. version of the Bravo hit “Blood, Sweat & Heels.”
The original “Blood, Sweat & Heels” chronicled the personal and professional lives of six New York City 30-somethings. The show wrapped its first season on March 23. Earlier that month Leftfield released a casting notice calling for all “the most fabulous AND ambitious women in one of the most exciting cities in the country–Washington DC!” (Emphasis and excitement theirs.)
After the familiar eye rolls and forewarning–Washington and reality have never mixed well–one question remained: “Did they get anybody good to do it?”
The short answer is maybe. The lineup for the new show is a hodgepodge of who’s who and just plain “who?”
Sources say the series might star Pamela Sorensen, a media consultant who chronicles her social adventures on the Web site Pamela’s Punch; Miss DC 2011 Ashley Boalch, who married real estate developer Michael Darby in May; event planner Maggy Francois; entrepreneur Michele Hudson; and makeup artist Victoria Stiles.
We contacted each of the potential stars and received five versions of the same answer.
“I’m bound by NDA CONTRACT to not say anything about this project…is the official answer,” wrote Sorenson in an e-mail.
Bravo has not confirmed whether the network has official plans to pick up the as-yet-to-be-titled show. Leftfield Pictures did not return a request for comment.
A source close to Bravo said the network is “always exploring interesting characters in exciting cities” but that in the case of “Blood, Sweat & Heels: DC” it’s simply “too early to tell.”
