Network also plans to go 'Rove' this summer

TV Guide Network is venturing into the unscripted comedy world with ”StandUp in Stilettos,” a new original series hosted by ”The Office” co-star Kate Flannery.

The cabler will also air ”Rove LA,” the Australian talkshow hosted by Rove McManus, with a U.S. launch July 21. Ten episodes are planned for summer of the show, which airs on Australia’s Fox8.

”Stilettos” will begin production in late April on 10 halfhour episodes, with a premiere scheduled for 10 p.m. June 16. It will feature both familiar and rising comediennes with a female focus and will be shot in front of a live audience. Host Flannery is a former member of Second City’s National Tour Co.

”We are continuing to invest in original series and exclusive programming that will draw entertainment fans closer to their favorite stars,” TV Guide Network chairman Allen Shapiro said.
