The Second Season of “The A-List: New York” Set to Return to Logo Fall 2011
NEW YORK, Jan. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Pop the champagne, touch up your spray tan and pick a cute outfit, Logo’s much talked-about docu-reality series “The A-List: New York” is returning for a second season beginning in the fall, 2011. Season one of “The A-List: New York” quickly became one of the most talked-about series of 2010. It currently ranks as the second most-watched series in Logo’s history. Production is slated to begin shortly on 11 new, 1-hour episodes. The new season will pick up where the volatile first season left off, following provocative storylines like Reichen and Rodiney’s relationship, Austin’s attempts to stir the pot and Ryan and his partner’s struggle to adopt a child. The drama returns this fall on Logo.
The second season welcomes the return of the original cast of “The A-List: New York;” “The Amazing Race” winner actor/model Reichen Lehmkuhl, his Brazilian model boyfriend Rodiney Santiago, renowned celebrity photographer and “RuPaul’s Drag Race” and “America’s Next Top Model” staple Mike Ruiz, international model Austin Armacost, modeling agent Derek Lloyd Saathoff, and ultra-high-end salon owner Ryan Nickulas and his always quotable sidekick, TJ Kelly. Additionally, there will be some fresh faces in the crowd as new storylines and cast members are introduced throughout the season.
“The cast of ‘The A-List: New York’ burst onto the reality scene and grabbed everyone’s attention,” said Dave Mace, Senior Vice-President of Original Programming, Logo. “The series topped many ‘guilty pleasure’ lists and we’re glad to bring the boys back for their fans.”
Last season, viewers were given a V.I.P. pass into the boy’s fabulous lives. From their high-profile Manhattan careers to their sexy and steamy summer getaways in The Hamptons and on Fire Island, there was no shortage of drama and over-the-top antics. Season two will include even more hijinks as our A-listers attempt to navigate the highs and lows of their high-profile lives.
“The A-List: New York” is produced by True Entertainment with Steven Weinstock and Glenda Hersh serving as Executive Producers. Dave Mace and Christopher Willey serve as Executive Producers for Logo.
