Bravo: the gift that keeps on giving! First up is the much-anticipated celebrity-designer docudrama Million Dollar Decorators, which will premiere at some still-undefined date this spring/summer and which we previewed a couple of weeks ago. Now the network has just announced—in a press release entitled "Breakthrough by Bravo," by the by—a totally new series with home remodeler Jeff Lewis (of Flipping Out fame): Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis. Oh, boy, the words "interior" and "therapy" in one title—it could be a fascinating undertaking, particularly because apparently Lewis will "judge [homeowners'] flaws." And before anyone freaks out, yes, the always-lovable Zoila is tagging along for the ride. No word yet on when this will premiere, and the news does nothing to clarify whether or not we should be attracted to Lewis. As we ponder that ever-present philosophical question, read the official show description below.
“Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis”
Everyone’s favorite obsessive-compulsive house-flipper is taking on a new role – as a therapist? “Interior Therapy with Jeff Lewis” follows Jeff and Jenni as they move into someone else’s home and Jeff does what Jeff does best: redesign their space and judge their flaws. He’ll observe the homeowners, diagnose their problems, and then take over their house for five days - with the goal of improving them inside and out. Of course he does this by using a combination of brutal honesty, impeccable design, and a few unique solutions that only Jeff Lewis could come up with, but he has his trusted assistant Jenni and his loyal housekeeper Zoila along for the ride to make sure he doesn’t go too far over the line. This time, Jeff’s not just redesigning a space; he’s redesigning people’s lives.
