Bravo to Develop THE JONESES Based on Indie Film
As first reported on TVGuide.com, the Bravo Network is currently developing the unscripted drama series THE JONESES, based on the 2009 indie film by the same name. The series is from Liz Tigelaar, best known for creating 'Life Unexpected.' Gary Fleder and Mary Beth Basile will produce the series.
According to the report, THE JONESES follows "an all-American family the Joneses, who move to an upscale suburb. However, they're harboring a deep secret from their neighbors: They're not actually a family. They're trying to infiltrate their neighbors in order to market products to them." Actors Demi Moore and David Duchovney starred in the original film.
The project was originally greenlit by ABC but after the network turned it down as a pilot, it was redeveloped by Bravo. The cable network has two other scripted projects in development, 22 Birthdays and Blowing Sunshine, both scheduled to premiere in 2013.
