Bethenny Frankel’s new talk show, set to launch nationwide this fall after tryouts on Fox stations last summer, has named its executive producers. Deadline.com reports that “Anderson Live” EP Terence Noonan and MSNBC founding producer Meghan Schaefer Spielberg have been tapped as EPs along with Frankel and Ellen DeGeneres.
DeGeneres’ company A Very Good Production co-produces the show with Telepictures. “Anderson Live” is ending its run after two seasons.
“Additionally, Mary Connelly, Ed Glavin and Andy Lassner, executive producers of ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show,’ also produced by Telepictures and A Very Good Production, will serve as consulting executive producers of ‘Bethenny,’ after having served as executive producers of the six-week test last year,” the report adds.
The piece notes: “Noonan is also the creator and executive producer of ‘DC Cupcakes’ and ‘A Slice of Brooklyn’ and was a supervising producer on ‘The Dr. Oz Show.’ Schaefer Spielberg most recently served as the senior executive producer of MSNBC’s daytime programming.”
