Fans of daytime shows are sometimes surprised when they realize that familiar stars are friends in real life. One dynamic daytime duo is creating an innovative new series because of a friendship. Ryan Seacrest (@RyanSeacrest) and Kelly Ripa have been friends for years, and they have decided each to be part of a new television series.
This pair has added unique personal flair to ABC’s “Live” broadcasts since 2001. Now, they are joining forces in a brand new socio-centric programming enterprise. They both have been cleared to start production on a series called “Work Wife.” This is a multi-camera, quasi-reality comedy featuring the two morning show celebrities. This new show is focused on the lives of the spouses of people engaged in typical blue collar work routines. Though this seems like a traditional setup, the angles provide a deeper insight into how spouses and partners of working people deal with daily relationship and family demands.
The pilot episode of this Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest creation has been cleared by producers. The script for the pilot episode was largely influenced by the personal experiences of both Ryan and Kelly. It will also highlight the talents of several popular production experts. The crew will include names like Nina Wass, Andrea Shay, and Marc Consuelos. All production will fall under the banners of Molijo Productions and the ABoC Network.
Anyone who regularly watches daytime network TV knows that Ryan Seacrest is a fan and network favorite. His approach to television is universally appealing. The radio show host has always taken the role of announcer and co-host, but this project puts him in line to become an acting icon. “Work Wife” is a fresh concept that features positive and familiar faces. Both Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest are ideal for a television show that explores modern working family problems in a light and intriguing way.
