The NY Times' Cathy Horyn gives us a rundown of eight fashion reality shows currently in development. It's exhaustive (and exhausting). We like her suggestion: "Personally, I’m waiting for the scripted series about a closeted fashion executive and his talented business partner who has a secret cocaine habit and a long list of powerful clients, including two first ladies (it’s an international company, naturally). As they fly down to St. Bart’s, the executive is about to be exposed by a blogger who during New Year’s witnessed an unflattering moment on a Russian billionaire’s yacht. That’s just the first episode." [On the Runway]
