Kyle Richards is finally getting her day in the spotlight! And it’s so much better than a spinoff on Bravo. The Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills star’s sitcom pilot was just picked up by TV Land! Kyle will co-executive produce the half-hour comedy inspired by her childhood growing up in 1970’s Hollywood. 

The premise of Kyle’s show is a “a dark comedy about a woman’s struggle to raise her family and claim her own brand of independence in a world not ready to give it.”


Unlike some Real Housewives who’ve attempted at a sitcom, Kyle’s show is definitely legit! The pilot will be written by former 30 Rock executive producer John Riggi, who will serve as a executive producer alongside fellow Warner Horizon Television producer John Wells. 

Heavily grafted from Kyle’s own childhood experiences, the main character, Bonnie Nolan, is reminiscent of Kyle’s infamous stage mother Big Kathy. Per Deadline Bonnie is described as “40 years old with a beautiful home and three beautiful daughters to go with it. However, she also has a cheating husband.”

“Finding herself alone after her marriage fails, Bonnie is an enigma of the times: a single woman with no means to support herself or her children,” continues the description. 

Kyle’s decision to create the show caused serious real-life family tensions with Kathy Hilton. Anything having to do with Kyle, television, and her family seems to cause frictions – Kyle and Kim Richards‘ traumatic and dysfunctional relationship has been a main storyline on Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills since its first season. One might think Kyle would learn by now, but… it’s Kyle! Plus, one must suffer for their vacuous rapacious need for attention art. 

However TV Land is excited to welcome Kyle’s dysfunctional family drama into its lineup. “This project, the caliber of the people behind it, and its fearless authenticity brings TV Land to new heights,” praised Keith Cox, TV Land’s EVP Development and Original Programming.

TV Land also picked up a series based on The First Wives Club, produced by Darren Starr (of Sex And The City fame), and a Nobodies, a comedy produced by Melissa McCarthy. 

Well, congratulations Kyle – I’ll definitely check out her sitcom!
