Is there anything Ryan Seacrest doesn't do? The American Idol host, radio personality, red-carpet reporter and TV producer is adding another project to his already heaping plate: the new Bravo docu-series Shahs of Sunset.
Seacrests aptly titled Ryan Seacret Productions is partnering with Bravo on the series, which -- according to a press release -- "will follow a group of young Persian-American friends who juggle their flamboyant, fast-paced L.A. lifestyles with the demands of their families and traditions."
Sounds like an interesting choice for the Idol host, but let's not forget that this is a guy who knows his reality programming; Seacrest Productions is the driving force behind the super successful series of Kardashian reality shows. And the brief description of Shahs certainly sounds like a great fit for Bravo's programming block, which includes reality hits like the Real Housewives franchise and Million Dollar Decorators.
"We're pleased to bring this exciting new story of a distinct and compelling community of Los Angeles to the Bravo audience," Seacrest said in a statement. "The series will offer rich characters and relatable storylines about everyday life -- love, work, friendship and family -- steeped in a diverse culture, which is wildly entertaining and fun."
As for when we'll get our first taste of that wildly entertaining fun, that remains to be seen: Shahs of Sunset does not yet have an air date.
