Nicole Richie has taken with #CandidlyNicole, which, in a competitive situation, has been given a straight-to-series order by VH1 for eight episodes to premiere July 17 reports Deadline. Additionally, the network has signed a first look/development deal with Richie’s Honey Child Prods. Reality series #CandidlyNicole, produced by Telepictures and World of Wonder, is based on Richie’s popular AOL online series of the same name, which in turn was based on Richie’s irreverent Twitter feed. “Nicole’s sharp, acerbic sense of humor and broad audience appeal make #CandidlyNicole a perfect fit for the VH1 brand,” said Susan Levison, VH1’s EVP Original Programming and Development. “Viewers will enjoy her unique point of view and earnest look at pop culture as well as her fearless exploration of anything and everything taboo.”
#CandidlyNicole marks Richie’s first reality starring vehicle since Fox’s The Simple Life.
According to VH1, it will “detail her daily adventures and give insight
into her decisions on style, relationships, her work life and her
journey to adulthood.” TV personality, fashion maven and author Richie,
who was a mentor on NBC’s Fashion Star, executive produces
alongside Michael Baum and Carrie Franklin.
Sidebar: I love her sense of humor, at least what I can remember of it when she was on Simple Life. Congrats to her for showing how you can go from Twitter to TV. Yeah, that's the trend I want to follow.
