“Southern Charm Savannah” debuts Monday night May 8 on Bravo TV, an expansion of the network’s popular reality TV show “Southern Charm”. Taking place in and around Savannah, Georgia, the series introduces us to a group representing the ‘….posh society” of that city.
The network describes the general background of the series and the city, in this way. “This hauntingly romantic city is filled with heirs and socialites who learned to operate boats before cars and whose ball gowns and white dinner jackets never collect dust. The series will follow six lifelong friends as they set out to make their mark in this world, all while navigating their legacies, love lives, and personal relationships.”
Let’s meet the players, shall we? In the video clip posted below, they gather for a social evening arriving in various ways.
Here’s a bit more to tease you on the cast of characters presented in the premiere of “Southern Charm Savannah”.
Lyle Mackenzie, a man on a mission who moved back to Savannah hoping to make an honest woman out of his high school sweetheart; Louis Oswald, who recently resigned from his corporate banking job to become a full-time entrepreneur; Hannah Pearson, who relocated from Atlanta and found love but learned quickly that in Savannah, “mama’s boy” takes on a whole new meaning.
Daniel Eichholz, a Jewish business man by day and ladies’ man by night who was forced to grow up after a scandal nearly destroyed his family business; Catherine Cooper, a modern Southern Belle on a quest for independence; and Ashley Borders, a fashionista who spent years traveling the world before realizing that there really is no place like home.
Additional charming characters set to make an appearance include Happy McCullough, who is bucking old-school Southern traditions by marrying her Muslim boyfriend; and comeback kid W. Nelson Lewis Jr., who made headlines in Washington D.C. with his wild behavior.
