TV & FILM

Have you ever found yourself watching one of the various Real Housewives shows and thinking, "man, I wish there was a show just like this, but tailored to guys."
Well, dude, I honestly don't know why you would admit to watching one of the Real Housewives shows. Like being a brony, that's really a guilty pleasure that you probably should keep to yourself. However, now that you have admitted it, I might as well tell you that the Esquire Network has heard your plea. Today they announced that they've ordered 10 episodes of a new buddy reality TV from the creators of Real Housewives of Atlanta and its various spinoffs. That show is called "Lucky Bastards," and it will premier at 10 p.m. on April 16. (So you've got, what, about four weeks to figure out where in the hell the Esquire Network is?)
The show will follow the professional and personal lives of six rich dudes who have been friends for decades and are now living it up in New York City. Here's the official description from the Esquire Network:
Lorenzo Borghese – A member of the Borghese cosmetic dynasty, Lorenzo is a real-life prince who runs several businesses. (You may recognize him from "The Bachelor," but we won't tell anyone.)
Rocco Cafferelli – The son of a women's fashion tycoon, Rocco has confidence and a big personality, but has never had a career. Hoping to start a premium denim line, he chats up beautiful girls as "market research."
Adam Campbell – Just back from living in L.A., Adam says he's looking to settle down – but not until he samples every possible female option New York has to offer.
Craig Clemens – Craig's a financially successful cosmetics executive who's also a first-degree black belt and occasional break dancer. He and Adam have been buds forever, affectionately (perhaps nauseatingly?) calling each other "Oldie," as in "old friend."
Charles Ferri – After leaving a career in banking to start a vodka brand, Charles will do anything to make it a success. As the only guy in the group with a serious girlfriend, he sometimes finds himself living vicariously through his friends – and every now and then, stepping in as their conscience.
Scott Mitchell – An independent wealth manager, Scott always has several deals going on at a time – and even more women surrounding him. So many, in fact, that his friends have taken to calling these women his "Scottourage."
And just in any case, if you still aren't convinced that you should watch a reality TV show about rich dudes being rich and trying to nail hot babes, here's a sneak peak courtesy of the folks at The Wrap:
