Frances Berwick was president of Bravo and Style Media, and Bravo’s head of programming, when “Queer Eye” was developed. “ ‘Queer Eye’ became the basis around which we organized, developed and marketed the network,” she says. “Those areas of expertise — fashion, grooming, home design, food and entertaining and pop culture — became our passion points and the affinity groups we still program to.
