A syndicated talk show built around a woman who has become a franchise in reality television is set to premiere Monday, June 11, on Fox-owned stations in six markets, B&C reports.
The show is Telepictures’ “Bethenny,” starring Bethenny Frankel. Frankel first surfaced on NBC’s “The Apprentice: Martha Stewart,” but blew up after a move to Bravo. She did three seasons of "The Real Housewives of New York City" before getting her own show "Bethenny Getting Married?," which morphed into "Bethenny Ever After."
The talk show has the following schedule on the major Fox stations:
New York (WNYW) at 11 a.m.
Los Angeles (KTTV) at 2 p.m.
Philadelphia (WTXF) at 11 a.m.
Dallas (KDFW) at 1 p.m.
Phoenix (KSAZ) at 11 a.m.
Minneapolis (KMSP) at 10 a.m.
In a statement, Andy Lassner, one of the executive producers of Warner Bros.’ "Ellen," who also will executive produce "Bethenny," said: "It’s a great marriage for us to be on Fox stations with this show. Airing on those stations will allow us to speak to her edginess a little better. The greatest thing about Bethenny is Bethenny being Bethenny. She’s so candid and so unedited. Being on that Fox lineup will allow her to be who she is as a person."
The show will be executive produced by Frankel, Ellen DeGeneres, Mary Connelly, Ed Glavin and Lassner.
