Looks like Caitlyn Jenner isn’t the only member of the family going solo – Khloe Kardashian is also getting her own show. Unlike her former stepdad’s upcoming I Am Cait reality series on E!, Kocktails With Khloe will be a studio-based talk show. FYI Network announced today that it has ordered eight 1-hour episodes of the series from Pilgram Studios. Going into production ASAP and scheduled to launch later this year, Kocktails has the former The X-Factor co-host as both the on-screen talent and EP.
To shake things up a bit, there will not be a couch or desk on Kocktails. Instead, celebs and friends – does Khloe have non-celeb friends? – will, according to FYI, “join Khloe in the kitchen and around the table for an intimate dinner party filled with cooking, pop culture, conversation and outrageously fun party games.”Pilgrim’s Craig Piligian executive produces along with FYI’s Gena McCarthy, Toby Faulkner and Lauren Wohl – and of course, Khloe.“Khloe Kardashian is an iconic millennial voice,” said McCarthy, SVP of Programming and Development for the A+E Networks division. “We look forward to sharing her unique personality, wit, and insight with the FYI audience.”
“I’m lucky that I’ve been able to invite fans into my life and home on a weekly basis and this show will give me an opportunity to continue to do that with new and exciting guests,”said Kardashian in a statement Tuesday. “Being an executive producer allows me the opportunity to create original content and I can’t wait to show my fans what we have in store on Kocktails with Khloe.”
As well as appearing on Keeping Up With the Kardashians since it’s debut in 2007, TV vet Khloe has had a number of spinoffs of her own including E!’s now shuttered Khloe & Lamar and the more recent Kourtney and Khloe Take The Hamptons. She also was on an episode of Law& Order: LA back in 2011 and on Royal Pains last year – on both occasions, the Kardashian sibling played herself.
