new and returning series and specials premiering on Bravo FOR APRIL, MAY AND JUNE 2010
9 BY DESIGN – SERIES PREMIERE
Tuesday, April 13 at 11 pm et/pt (moving to 10 pm et/pt beginning April 20)
An eight-episode docu-series that chronicles husband and wife design team, Robert and Cortney Novogratz, “9 by Design” follows the owners of Sixx Design, a renovation and design firm in New York that specializes in creating unique living spaces. They have made it their business to seek out abandoned buildings across Manhattan and transform them into multi-million dollar living spaces. The name of their company relates to the number of children they had at the time the firm was founded. Today, parents Robert and Cortney have seven kids ranging in age from six months to 12 years, including two sets of twins. New York City may not be the typical place to raise a large and growing family, but for the Novogratz’s there’s no place like home: they live in the homes they flip! “9 By Design” is produced by Left/Right, Inc. with Ken Druckerman and Banks Tarver serving as executive producers.
