Bravo TV has released the first look of their new reality show featuring an all Indian-American cast. “Family Karma” is the first reality series television show featuring an all Indian cast. It is set in Miami and follows seven Indian American friends from the same immigrant community, reports NBC.

The cast members are:
Shaan Patel an entrepreneur who is under pressure to marry his girlfriend Pooja.
Bali Chainani who returned back to Miami from Bombay with a daughter after she divorced her husband. The mother got married again but also divorced again. Now she’s onto her third serious relationship and hopes this is the one.

Brian Benni, a 27-year-old ex “party boy” who had a relationship with Monica. Now that he’s finished with his partying ways he hopes to get Monica back.
Vishal Parvani is a mama’s boy who’s working for his mother’s real estate company. At 32-years-old he’s looking to settle down and take his 3-year engagement to his fiance Richa to the next level but he has to prove himself to her mother.
Amrit Kapai is 32-years-old and gay. His sexuality wasn’t accepted by his parents at first but now they love him for who he is.
“Family Karma” will look into the lives of these seven and their families as they navigate their lives and culture.
