Bravo is best-known for the juicy gossip in Real Housewives and Vanderpump Rules, but the celeb-centric channel is changing up the game a bit. A brand new Law & Order-inspired competition series takes a spot on the extensive list of shows filmed in Atlanta and it finally aired yesterday. The intense battle between rookie spies is rigorous to say the least.\nSpy Games is an all-new, edge-of-your-seat twist on TV drama that premiered on Bravo yesterday (January 20). The show was filmed in and around Atlanta last year for six weeks and the first episode takes place at the popular (especially among stars) Midtown steakhouse, STK.\nThe competitive series stars newbie "spies" who face one another to complete challenges that could be compared to those at murder mystery parties. Except this version is more fierce with tests of survival that involve turning strangers into allies.\nAlthough similar to Law & Order in the sense that contestants are collecting intel to crack a case, it's actually based on a real top secret WWII spy training program called "Station S."\nTypically, all the actors and reality stars on Bravo shows push to gain as much attention as possible, but ironically enough, the stars of this series must try their hardest to avoid the lime light (they are spies, after all).\nView this post on Instagram We're ready to blow our cover—get ready for the espionage reality competition of the year when #SpyGames premieres TONIGHT @ 10/9c!

The lack of experience adds some extra fun because honestly, every show needs a little drama.\nView this post on Instagram #spygames #spygamescast #spygamesfans #spy #bravo #bravorspygames A post shared by Spy Games (@spygamescompetition) on Jan 16, 2020 at 7:31pm PST\nThere was no shortage of it in last night's premier with a contestant who loves alcohol a little too much and one who decided this high-class scenario was a perfect call for a plank challenge.\nThere was also a male contestant who sparked verbal drama with a female cast member and it did not sit well with judges. Needless to say, the intense challenges create high stakes and even higher tension, so the drama is expected to heat up throughout the season.\nView this post on Instagram Think you have #SpyGames figured out?
