It’s getting even harder to keep up with the Kardashians! With the family already dominating in reality programming and fashion, it now it looks like momager Kris Jenner can add another feather to her well-plumed cap: talk show host.
According to Deadline Hollywood, Fox has greenlit a six-week test run of the show to air this summer on a select number of Fox-owned stations throughout the country.
The as-yet-unnamed Kris Jenner joint will be a “pop culture driven talk show,” featuring celebrity guests, style tips, and a variety of lifestyle topics. Kris has already had some practice as a guest host on The Today Show and The Talk.
Stephen Brown, EVP of Development & Programming at Twentieth TV seems optimistic about Kris’s ability to helm her own talk show: “‘Whether offering real advice to her family or sharing personal moments with viewers, Kris is honest, compelling, entertaining, and unscripted – all excellent qualities for a daytime talk show host.’”
Frank Cicha, SVP of Programming, Fox Television Stations added, “‘Wouldn’t be summer without at least one test, would it? In all seriousness, we go into this believing that if it works, the Kris Jenner program could really compliment what we’ve got going with [The Wendy Williams Show], Bethenny, etc.’”
We’re sure a business-savvy lady like Kris can get this vehicle off the ground! And, since it will tape in Los Angeles, she won’t have to be far from her gigantic family. Now the big question is: Will you be tuning in to watch?
