Entertainment Weekly has announced that Reality Television Momager Kris Jenner signed a deal for a daily, one hour daytime talk show, called “KRIS.” The Twentieth Century show will cover fashion, beauty tips, and general lifestyle coverage along with celebrity interviews and airs this summer.
In a press statement, Kris Jenner said: “This is something I have wanted to do all my life so it’s definitely a dream come true! I can’t wait for this new adventure to begin.”
Stephen Brown, Twentieth’s EVP of Development and Programming, said:
“The latest adventures, successes and disappointments surrounding the extensive Kardashian and Jenner family fill entertainment magazines and create daily online headlines. At the center of this fascinating empire is Kris Jenner –- a dedicated mom and a successful business woman. 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.”
The program’s summer run is considered a “test.” KRIS will join Wendy Williams and Bethenny Frankel’s talk shows, both of which are nationally syndicated.
Frank Cicha, SVP of programming, Fox Television Stations stated, “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 complement what we’ve got going with Wendy, Bethenny, etc.”
