“Imposters” is the Fastest Growing New Scripted Series on Ad-Supported Cable
NEW YORK – April 18, 2017 – Bravo Media and Universal Cable Productions (UCP) surprised the cast of the original, scripted series “Imposters” last night during the For Your Consideration Emmy® event, announcing that the series was picked up for season two. Production will commence this fall on 10 episodes. From executive producers Adam Brooks (“Definitely Maybe,” “Mozart in the Jungle”) and Paul Adelstein (“Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce,” “Chance”), the series follows a persona-shifting con artist, as beautiful as she is dangerous, and her three most recent victims. Robbed of both their money and their hearts, the trio teams up to chase the woman who has left them questioning everything they believed to be true. Along the way, they learn the art of the con themselves, becoming embroiled in a thrilling game of cat and mouse that includes the beautiful grifter, her mysterious boss and his deliciously psychotic henchman… as well as the FBI.
