NEW YORK (AP) — Randi Zuckerberg, the sister of Facebook's founder, is working with Bravo on a TV show about Silicon Valley.

Bravo says "Silicon Valley" is a working title for the show, which follows young professionals in real life working to create the next big thing in tech. Going by a short preview on Bravo's website, this involves drinking, driving fast cars and bragging about money.

Bravo hasn't said when it would start running the show. But it has already gotten criticism. Sarah Lacy, a former editor with the technology blog TechCrunch, calls the show unconscionable and compares it to "Jersey Shore."

Randi Zuckerberg left Facebook last year to work on her own ventures. Mark Zuckerberg remains with the company as CEO.

Bravo is part of Comcast Corp.'s NBCUniversal division.
