Bravo announced Luann and Sonja: Welcome to Crappie Lake will follow socialites Luann de Lesseps and Sonja Morgan as they head to Benton, Illinois.

The series premieres in July.

Bravo called it “a fish-out-of-water experience for everyone involved, especially when the two Manhattanites check in to the local motel.”

While in town, they say the Luann and Sonja will help build a new playground and revitalize the local theater with a full-on variety show.
