Following a summer test run on six Fox stations, including in New York and Los Angeles, a daytime talk show built around Bravo reality star Bethenny Frankel is on the verge of getting a major pickup, TVNewsCheck.com reports.
“Bethenny,” from Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution, performed well in its test run and is poised to be picked up by Fox Television Stations for a fall 2013 launch, the story reports. A Fox pickup would likely be a springboard to broader syndication for the show.
Frankel currently stars in Bravo’s "Bethenny Ever After."
Produced by Ellen DeGeneres and the "Ellen" executive producers for Warner Bros., "Bethenny" has been taping in "Ellen’s" Burbank studio. It’s expected that with the pickup, "Bethenny" will relocate to New York and will broadcast from studio space there.
