Kyle Richards has a new project in the works. “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star is slated to co-executive produce a single camera comedy based on her life.
According to a press release, the show will be set in the 70’s, and will focus on Bonnie Nolan, a forty-something year old woman who must “claim her own brand of independence in a world not ready to give it.” Nolan and her cheating husband split, and she is left to raise her three daughters on her own. The press release adds, “Bonnie is an enigma of the times: a single woman with no means to support herself or her children.”
The show, which is currently in development, is described as a dark comedy, and is inspired by Richards’ own mother and her older sisters, Kim Richards and Kathy Hilton. The show will air on TV Land, but no premiere date announcement has been made yet.
“I am extremely excited and proud to be collaborating with such a talented and creative team of John Wells Productions, John Riggi, Warner Bros. Television and TV Land to bring this story to life,” Kyle says in a statement.
“We are beyond thrilled to be working with Warner Horizon Television and all of these amazing talents—John Riggi, John Wells, Andrew Stearn and, of course, Kyle Richards,” Keith Cox, TV Land’s EVP Development and Original Programming, says in a statement. “This project, the caliber of the people behind it and its fearless authenticity brings TV Land to new heights.”
So wait…Kyle WANTS to show the world a depiction of her mom navigating the world as a single mother? Anyone who has read ‘House of Hilton,’ will understand my amazement. Do you think that this will be remotely close portrayal of the three sisters’ lives with their hardcore stage mother?
