Based in Los Angeles, Wang will oversee the development and
production of scripted pilots and series while serving as the liaison between

"With the network's first scripted series expected to air in
2013, Bravo's goal is to expand our diverse slate and bring our brand and
everything it represents into the world of scripted programming," said Lehrer.
"Andrew has helped develop some of the most entertaining pop culture hits and
