According to Deadline on Monday, TV personality and former Bravo development executive Andy Cohen has a new half-hour weekly unscripted series titled "I Slept With a Celebriy" in the works. The “Watch What Happens Live” host has teamed up with Warner Horizon Television in a show, which will be about one-night stands with celebrities.
The half-hour series will be different from Cohen’s “Real Housewives” franchise, but could be more scandalous as each episode will feature two guests who dish about how they hooked up a famous person and share intimate details about what often ended up being a one-night stand. Will the guests share the names of these celebrities or will it be up to the viewers to figure out the clues? Those questions will only be answered if the show is picked up.
NBCUniversal are expected to get a first look at the unscripted series. Cohen, who stepped down as a programming executive at Bravo in November, signed a new first-look deal with NBCUniversal. Cohen will still continue his duties as host and executive producer of “Watch What Happens Live” and will still be involved with the “Real Housewives” franchise.
With one book published and another on the way, Cohen is no stranger to dishing some dirt on celebrities. So in a way, producing the unscripted series exposing intimate details about the rich and famous may be up Cohen’s ally. But he may also lose some celebrity friends depending on what sort of details are exposed and who is exposed.
The project is currently in the early stages and promises “to deliver the juiciest gossip from people who say they got to experience the glitz and glamour of Hollywood – and then a whole lot more.” The Emmy-winning executive producer has also worked on “Project Runway,” Millionaire Matchmaker,” “The Rachel Zoe Project,” and “Top Chief.” This series, however, may carry some drama his way. Then again, drama is what makes the best television these days.
