The TV personality will have a trial run on severAl Fox-owned stations in markets, including New York and Los Angeles. The program, produced by Twentieth Television, is described as "a pop culture driven talk show filmed in Los Angeles. It will feature celebrity guests, fashion & beauty trends; plus a mix of lifestyle topics."
Gushed Jenner, "This is something I have wanted to do all my life so it's definitely a dream come true!."
Added Stephen Brown, EVP of Development & Programming, Twentieth TV, "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."
"Wouldn't be summer without at least one test, would it?" quipped Frank Cicha, SVP of Programming, FOX Television Stations. "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 Wendy, Bethenny, etc."
Kardashian's biggest competition so far will come from Sony TV's 'The Queen Latifah Show', already picked up in more than 9% of the country.
