King of Bravo, Andy Cohen, is set to have his 2012 memoir “Most Talkative” developed by Universal Television into a comedy series for NBC.
Andy Cohen, host of Watch What Happens Live, will soon have a show based on his 2012 memoir, Most Talkative: Stories from the Front Lines of Pop Culture. For years, Andy has helped give fans glimpses into the lives of the super-rich through The Real Housewives and WWHL by asking his guests personal, sometimes prying, questions and reading viewer questions sent in from social media.
The Real Housewives whisperer has vast experience in television, first starting as an intern with CBS. From there, he went on to become the VP of original programming at Bravo, the network where he would find huge success with The Real Housewives franchise. In addition to hosting WWHL, Andy is an executive producer of The Real Housewives series, hosts “Andy Cohen Live” on Radio Andy by Sirius XM, and a best-selling author of multiple books. The audacious television personality has interviewed Hollywood big-wigs for a living, but now his younger self will be the main character.
According to Variety, Andy’s first memoir, Most Talkative, is being developed into a comedy series for NBC. Published in 2012, the memoir tells the story of Andy’s childhood and details his coming-of-age journeys. The show, titled after the memoir, Most Talkative is being created by Universal Television. The show will follow a young Cohen-esque boy in his hometown of St. Louis and have viewers follow along with his TV-obsessed personality and his love for the St. Louis Cardinals.
Along with Most Talkative, the Housewife and WWHL guru, Andy is the author of two other autobiographical books—The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year and Superficial: More Adventures from the Andy Cohen Diaries. In these memoirs, he talks celebrities, pop culture gossip, the New York dating scene, and dogs. His witty banter takes fans along for the ride as he navigates life while rubbing elbows with the who’s who of television, fashion, and more.
Andy’s close relationships with the Housewives and his unabashed questioning of guests on WWHL endear him to many fans who will no doubt love a chance to watch a series based on the early life of the King of Bravo. Directed by Todd Holland, who has directed television hits like Malcolm in the Middle, The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, 30 Rock, and Grace and Frankie, and executive produced by Andy, the series will have the backing of TV superstars on every level of production. The jack-of-all-trades has said he is “tickled” to have his childhood be an outline for Most Talkative and is sure viewers will love it.
