Bravo goes digging for drama (and finds plenty) in Silicon Valley

A forthcoming reality show enlists the help of Randi Zuckerberg (Mark's sister) and draws fire from the startup community

The television network Bravo has made a name for itself by producing highly addictive reality fare like Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, Project Runway and the Real Housewives series. Like any successful reality programming these shows thrive on tension, backstabbing, a lot of melodrama and a smattering of fake tans (and other body parts).

Now Bravo, an NBC Universal property, is taking its finely tuned shtick to Silicon Valley – and has enlisted the help of none other than Randi Zuckerberg, sister of Facebook founder Mark. The former marketing director for Facebook, Randi left the social network last year to launch her own startup, R to Z Studios.

If a preview of the show tells us anything, it looks a lot like a spinoff of Real Housewives, only with a higher geek factor.
