Joe Zee posted a preview of his new show, called All On The Line, on Facebook, but then we were cruising around the interwebs and found this, above.
Is this video the full first episode of Zee's upcoming one-man reality show set to debut on the Sundance Channel later this spring? Sure looks like it.
Described as: "Joe Zee—fashion powerhouse, celebrity stylist, and Creative Director of Elle magazine—helps struggling designers save their lines from ruin in the new series," the first episode features New York-based designer Leila Shams. Shams previously worked for Express, DKNY Jeans, andBebe before launching her own collection in 2009. Shams' fall 2010 collection was picked up by Harvey Nichols and her website confirms that "Leila Shams' Spring 2011 line will be featured on a fashion reality showing airing March 2011."
What do you think of the show? We're digging Zee's new look and enjoy seeing more of his personality than was exposed during his segments on The City.
UPDATE: The episode has been removed from Vimeo, but here's our favorite minute from the beginning of the show. We're pretty much loving Joe Zee's facial expressions and blunt honesty. Love.
