In the show dubbed 'Kathy', she'll rant about pop culture, perform some stand-up routines and interview celebrities.
Kathy Griffin is going to front a new talk show which has just been greenlit by Bravo. A one-hour weekly talk show, "Kathy" will take primetime and premiere this spring. Griffin would talk about "the week's biggest headlines and tabloid gossip as well as feature stand-up routines, celebrity interviews and taped segments."
Bravo is also picking up two Griffin specials for this year, making the total number of the network's programs that feature Griffin fifteen. "She's been a part of Bravo's DNA for so long I think she'd show up in our dental records," Frances Berwick, President of Bravo and Style Media said on Saturday, January 7.
Bravo is also greenlighting "Pregnant in Heels" for season 2, "The Millionaire Matchmaker" for Season 6 and "Million Dollar Listing LA" for Season 5. There will be new special "The Ring Leader" which highlights the life of wedding planner Kristin Banta, in addition to reality competition, "Around the World in 80 Plates".
"Bravo's six straight years of growth have been fueled by our unique, high quality originals," said Berwick. "We are committed to building on this momentum across all platforms in 2012, with more cultural touchstones that resonate with our affluent and engaged audience."
