Bravo is known for their "Real Housewives" franchise. This new show for Bravo will feature young aristocrats in Charleston and southern plantations.

Ravenel, who was elected state treasurer in 2006, resigned from office and served time in prison on a drug charge. 

Ravenel owns a plantation here in the Lowcountry and is the son of Arthur Ravenel for whom the landmark Cooper River Bridge is named. 

The Ravenels were among the earliest families to settle Charleston in the late 1600s.
