FYI has greenlit “Kocktails With Khloe,” a primetime talk show hosted by Khloe Kardashian. The network has ordered eight one-hour episodes, slated to premiere late this year.
Pilgrim Studios will produce the “hybrid talk series,” which will bring celebrity guests and friends together with Kardashian in the kitchen and around the table for an intimate dinner party full of cooking, pop culture, conversation and party games.
In addition to her hosting duties, Kardashian will serve as an exec producer on the talker.
“’Kocktails with Khloe’ is something I’m extremely proud of and I’m excited to execute it with my amazing partners, Pilgrim and FYI,” said Kardashian. “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. 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.’”
Gena McCarthy, SVP of programming and development for FYI, commented, “Khloe Kardashian is an iconic millennial voice,” “We look forward to sharing her unique personality, wit, and insight with the FYI audience.” Craig Piligian of Pilgrim Studios added, “Khloe Kardashian has emerged as a star in her own right with a gift for remaining funny, warm and relatable while still representing aspirational pop culture. We are thrilled to be in business with Khloe and FYI.”
Best known for E!’s “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” franchise, in addition to the burgeoning Kardashian empire, the TV personality co-hosted on Fox’s second season of “The X-Factor” with Mario Lopez.
