History nerds and closeted period dress fangirls rejoice: Janie Bryant, the costume designer for Mad Men and Deadwood, among other boob tube favorites, is developing her own show with the co-creators of NBC's Fashion Star, E.J. Johnston and James Deutch. They're currently pitching it around to Bravo, Lifetime, and other lady-centric stations

According to Deadline, the tentative name is Janie Bryant's Hollywood and it's structured as a reality show competition. Designer contestants would create a piece each week in challenges inspired by period films or a celebrity's "signature" style. Considering the general freak out factor of, say, Sally's go-go boots, we're betting it's going to happen—and be at least bigger than the Fashion Star and Bryant's Banana Republic x Mad Men collaboration combined.
