The network is set to announce “Launch My Line” at its “upfront” programing presentation to advertisers Tuesday.

Originally titled “Celebrity Sew Off,” the series features a group of famous faces vying to launch their own clothing line. Each contestant will be paired with a fashion design expert who will help realize the celebrity’s creative vision.

Bravo also will unveil “Jackie’s Gym Takeover,” which combines the business-makeover format of the network’s “Tabatha’s Salon Takeover” and the star of its docu-soap “Work Out.” In each episode, gym owner Warner will user her experience to whip gyms back into shape.

“Gym Takeover” has been ordered as a pilot.
