Kyle Richards to Host Little House COZI Stunt; Bravo to Launch New Series in February

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards has teamed up with COZI TV for a memorable trip to America's favorite country farm. She will host a 17-episode Little House on the Prairie marathon on the national multicast network that kicks off Saturday, December 10 at 7 AM ET (check local listings). Richards began her career as a child actress, appearing as Alicia Sanderson Edwards on the Little House series. During the 17-hour marathon, Richards entertains viewers by comparing life on the prairie to her current one in Beverly Hills. Winner of four Emmy awards, Little House on the Prairie debuted on COZI TV this past September and airs weekdays from 10 AM to noon and at 5 PM. The popular western drama series, featuring Melissa Gilbert as Laura Ingalls and Michael Landon as her father, Charles Ingalls, tells the story of a family living on a farm in Walnut Grove, Minnesota during the 1870s and 1880s.

Adapted from Laura Ingalls Wilder's biographical best-selling Little House books, the series introduces the central characters, Charles Ingalls and his wife, Caroline, along with their four daughters, Mary, Laura, Carrie and Grace. The series follows the family from Laura's childhood through her adulthood and marriage to Almanzo Wilder, affectionately referred to as Manny by Laura, with whom she later starts a family of her own.


Imposters

Bravo Media sets the premiere date for its new original, scripted series Imposters (previously announced as My So Called Wife), debuting Tuesday, February 7 at 10pm ET/PT and produced by Universal Cable Productions. The series follows Maddie (Inbar Lavi, Gang Related), a persona shifting con-artist who is as beautiful as she is dangerous, leaving her unwitting victims tormented when they realize they have been used and robbed of everything - including their hearts. But things get complicated when her former targets, Ezra (Rob Heaps, Frankenstein and the Vampyre: A Dark and Stormy Night), Richard (Parker Young, Suburgatory) and Jules (Marianne Rendón) team up to track her down. While pursuing her newest mark, Maddie meets a potential love interest, Patrick (Stephen Bishop, Being Mary Jane), which threatens to derail her assignment, much to the chagrin of her mysterious boss, The Doctor. Meanwhile, her dejected past lovers manage to take control of their new realities, not realizing that in their quest to confront her, they'll have to face their own truths and find new versions of themselves along the way.

In the series premiere, newlyweds Ava (Maddie) and Ezra's blissful marriage shatters when he discovers his sweet wife has disappeared with all their money and enough sensitive information to destroy his family if he turns to the authorities for help. As a devastated Ezra reels and searches for answers, Maddie expertly prepares for her next con with her trusted cohorts, Max (Brian Benben, Private Practice) and Sally (Katherine LaNasa, The Campaign). When Richard shows up at Ezra's door in search of his perfect wife Alice, they realize they've been fooled by the same woman and join forces in the hope of finding her to seek revenge.

Golden Globe winning actress Uma Thurman will guest star with a story arc spanning several episodes. Uma will play Lenny Cohen, the ultimate fixer, making her debut in the episode airing February 21, 2017. When the reclusive ring-leader of a group of con artists needs to keep his employees in line or eliminate an enemy, there is only one person for the job - the lethal, articulate and mysterious Lenny Cohen. As Bravo continues its commitment to the scripted space, Imposters joins the network's Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce, set to air 2017, and comedy Odd Mom Out, currently in pre-production.
