It's Official: Dallas Is A-List. So If You're Not in a Reality Series This Fall, What Gives?

Bravo was first out of the box with its introduction of Most Eligible: Dallas, a reality series about the dating lives of Dallas's rich-n-pretty. Then came the Style Network, which last week introduced Big Rich Texas, a reality series from the same people responsible for Dallas Divas & Daughters. And though this one's been no surprise -- the Dallas Voice noted that producers were scouting for talent earlier this month -- MTV's gay-friendly spin-off Logo made it official this morning: It's expanding its A-List franchise to Dallas with 11 episodes of even more reality television beginning in the fall.

From the press release, if you can stand it:

Logo says "Yee-Haw!" to Dallas with the expansion of its hit docu-reality A-List franchise from the producers of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Deep in the heart of Texas, this cast of socialite scene-making men and women are out to prove their New York counterparts have not cornered the market on having big dreams and bigger dramas. Dallas has recently surged onto the pop culture radar as a focal point for food, fashion and fabulous, earning it a spot worthy of exploring with this top-tier cast of natives.
