NEW YORK, Aug. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Logo's highly-anticipated new docu-reality series will give viewers a V.I.P. pass into the fabulous -- and ferocious -- lives of New York's gay elite. Follow the most envied and sought-after men of New York City as they live the high life hopping from boardroom to benefit to beach house to bedroom. Watch the drama unfold as they attempt to "have it all" juggling their careers, families, friends and perhaps most importantly, enemies. The nine-episode, one hour series is executive produced by True Entertainment, an Endemol Company. "The A-List: New York" premieres Monday, October 4th at 10/9c on Logo.
"The A-List: New York" features some of New York City's most talked about gay elite including "The Amazing Race" winner actor/model (and Lance Bass' former boyfriend) Reichen Lehmkuhl, his Brazilian model boyfriend Rodiney Santiago, renowned celebrity photographer (Beyonce, Britney Spears, Dolly Parton, Christina Aguilera) and "RuPaul's Drag Race" and "America's Next Top Model" staple Mike Ruiz, international model (and Marc Jacobs' former flame) Austin Armacost, modeling agent Derek Lloyd Saathoff, and ultra-high-end salon owner Ryan Nickulas.
"The A-List: New York" follows these "boys who brunch" from their glamorous, high-profile careers in Manhattan to their weekends vacationing amongst the multi-million dollar homes of The Hamptons and the sexy, exclusive summer getaway Fire Island. Viewers will follow these A-listers daily lives ranging from Mike Ruiz's celebrity driven photo shoots to Reichen's Off-Broadway debut to Ryan's booming business at his lavish salon. Throughout the series, the cast brush shoulders with the celebrities, socialites and renowned personalities that make Manhattan one of the most desirable cities in the world.
Love will be lost and found, dreams will be shattered and made and along the way, hard truths will be revealed about the things money and power can -- and can't -- get you. From the producers of "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" "The A-List: New York" promises to take its rightful place alongside the greatest jaw-dropping television full of drama, extravagance and larger-than-life personalities.
