Janie Bryant: reality TV star?

Here’s hoping this happens…

You know you’re doing something right as a costume designer when you’re being touted for your own reality TV show. Step forward Janie Bryant.

The woman whose name has become synonymous with Mad Men’s unerringly beautiful aesthetic is reportedly ironing out the details for a designer competition-style show with E.J. Johnston and James Deutch, the makers of NBC's cult US hit Fashion Star.
