The Ladies of London television show on Bravo is set to start early next month.

The show is set to feature five American-born women–model Caprice Bourrett, fashion gurus Juliet Angus, and Noelle Reno, business expert Marissa Hermer, and health and wellness coach Julie Montagu.

They will be schooled in in English ways by natives Annabelle Nielsen, an author from South London; and Caroline Stanbury, former girlfriend to Prince Andrew and part of the Vestey dynasty. 

Ladies of London is just one of an increasing number of reality television shows focused almost exclusively on women.

Though it doesn’t debut until June 2, Bravo has released several preview videos recently that promise all of the action that fans of the shows have come to expect. It’s unclear if the show will air in the United Kingdom.
