Bravo preps pair of Atlanta reality series
'Taking Atlanta' and 'Married to Medicine' to storm Georgia's capital

Bravo would never want to give the impression that all modern women merely coast on their husbands' money while dabbling in philanthropic ventures and televising their soapy drama with fellow socialites. As such, the network has set in motion two new, Atlanta-based reality entries that spotlight both established female professionals and young, ambitious lady-folk.
According to Deadline, "Married to Medicine" and "Taking Atlanta" (the latter is a working tile) will join "Real Housewives of Atlanta" and "Don't Be Tardy" in Bravo's increasingly Georgia-centric unscripted roster. "Medicine" will document the doings of women doctors and doctors' wives, while "Taking Atlanta" seeks to capture what Deadline describes as a "group of aspiring and ambitious Atlanta locals as they make their mark in the arenas of fashion, music, hospitality and real estate while exploring the city’s sizzling social scene and balancing the demands of their tumultuous family situations." After all, what's a social scene if it's anything less than sizzling?
Of course, NBC's cornerstone cable affiliate isn't the only network slicing into some Peach State action. Lifetime, for one, is currently in production on the first season of "Double Divas," which focuses on an Atlanta-based lingerie shop that boasts, “No bust too big or small. We fit them all!” Hopefully, when it comes to competing reality shows in their city, they have room for another set.
