Charleston's Southern charmers grace the small screen
Charleston's charmers will grace the small screen on Bravo TV this year. The network announced this week that a new reality show, “Southern Charm,” will feature the high life in the Holy City.
“Southern Charm” will open the gates of plantation homes for a “real-life look at how modern-day Southern aristocracy lives,” according to the network's website.
The Bravo show will follow a group of the city's “most charismatic gentlemen and their Southern belle equals,” according to the network site.
Former state Treasurer Thomas Ravenel told WCSC-TV that he will be on the show.
Ravenel, once a shining star among state Republicans and now a Charleston businessman, served 10 months in federal prison in 2008 for a drug conviction.
He had pleaded guilty to conspiracy with intent to distribute cocaine.
The Bravo show will be produced by Haymaker Productions.
A call to the network to request further details about the show was not returned Thursday.
Ravenel told The Post and Courier through a Facebook message that he is contractually obligated not to talk to media yet.
