Reality star Brody Jenner, Stevie TV’s Stevie Ryan and sex and relationship therapist/TV personality Dr. Mike Dow are set to host an untitled live weekly relationship call-in talk show for E!, which will be filming a development presentation in Los Angeles this month.
The project originated with Brody and is based on The Brody Jenner Podcast With Dr. Mike Dow, which launched in January. Jenner sold the idea with Dow attached to E!, and Ryan was brought in as a third co-host. Jenner, his manager Eric Podwall and Matt Osborn executive produce, with former Early Show executive producer David Friedman set as showrunner.
Described as an updated take on Dr. Drew Pinsky’s Loveline, the show will tackle love and sex through a celebrity and pop culture lens. Joined by a celebrity guest, Jenner, Ryan and Dow will discuss hot-and-heavy topics live and will field callers’ questions about navigating their love and sex lives.
When it comes to relationships, Jenner saw several of his play out on TV. The son of Bruce Jenner has appeared on several docu-reality series including The Princes Of Malibu, The Hills and Keeping Up With The Kardashians. He also is repped by ICM Partners.
Ryan was the writer-producer-star of VH1’s Stevie TV, which featured the actress parodying top pop culture personalities in a sketch-comedy format. She is repped by APA and New Wave Entertainment.
Dow was co-host of VH1’s Couples Therapy. His résumé also includes hosting duties on Logo’s That Sex Show and TLC’s Freaky Eaters.
