Kardashian momager moves away from E! to work on her own project
It was bound to happen eventually: Kris Jenner has finally landed her own daytime talk show. The Kardashian – Jenner momager / matriarch has partnered with Fox Television and Twentieth Television for the new project.Deadline has confirmation of the happy news (for all Kardashian fans out there), including details about how the new show will first get a test run on “select Fox-owned stations in markets, including New York and Los Angeles.”
“The program, produced by Twentieth Television, is a pop culture driven talk show filmed in Los Angeles. It will feature celebrity guests, fashion & beauty trends; plus a mix of lifestyle topics,” the same media outlet reports.
Considering how she’s managed the career of all the Kardashian and Jenner girls, literally helping the entire clan become the highest paid family in reality television, it’s probably safe to assume that Kris has a lot to talk about.
Similarly, she can probably pull a lot of weight with celebrities to get them on her show, which, in turn, could bring solid ratings: as they say, the bigger the celebrity on, the larger the number of people tuning in.
Jenner will also be executive producing the new show, saying in a statement to Deadline that “this is something I have wanted to do all my life so it’s definitely a dream come true!”
“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,” said Stephen Brown, EVP of Development & Programming, Twentieth TV, adds for the same media outlet.
Kris, the new talk show, will premiere this summer.
No word yet whether Kris will also be interviewing her daughters sometime on her show, but chances are at least one of the more famous 3, Kim, Kourtney or Khloe, will be invited on.
