Andy Cohen Sets Producing Pact with Bravo as He Exits Exec Role

'Watch What Happens' renewed for 2 years; Lara Spotts promoted to development chief

“Watch What Happens Live” host Andy Cohen is transitioning out of his exec role at Bravo but will continue to host the latenight talker for the cabler, which has been picked up for two years.

Lara Spotts, now a VP of development, will be promoted to fill Cohen’s role as head of development for the NBCUniversal lifestyle cabler. Cohen has set a first-look pact with Bravo for his newly formed Most Talkative production banner and will continue to serve as an exec producer of the “Real Housewives” franchise.

“Andy has influenced the course and the shape of Bravo tremendously over the past 10 years as a production and development executive, and as creator and host of our flagship late night show, becoming the face of the network,” said Frances Berwick, resident of Bravo and Oxygen Media. “He has created legions of cultural-touchstone programs and left an indelible imprint on the network.  We are excited to retain him as a creative force with this new deal, which will also allow him to take ‘Watch What Happens Live’ and its irreverent, brand-defining humor to the next level.”
