Kris Jenner's Talk Show Plans Suffer a Setback Deadline
Kris Jenner’s talk show, which has been in the works for some time, got some bad news: The show won’t be picked up by Fox television stations this fall, although the door remains open for 2015, reports Nellie Andreeva at Deadline.com.
“Kris,” from Twentieth Television, had a six-week trial run on some Fox stations last summer, but “didn’t quite make a splash,” Andreeva notes. Still, it had a strong finish, with Jenner’s son-in-law-to-be Kanye West making an appearance and showing the first photo of his daughter with Kim Kardashian.
The “possibility for the talk show, or an additional project for Kris Jenner, for the 2015 season is being discussed and highly considered,” Stephen Brown, EVP Programming & Development, Fox Television Stations, said in a statement.
Andreeva writes, “Additionally, I hear there is a lot of good will towards Jenner across Fox, including both at Twentieth TV and Fox TV Stations as executives had been impressed by her professionalism, work ethics and personality.”
“Kris” had been waiting to hear from Fox TV stations about its future. “Bethenny” is still on the bubble, the piece notes.
