Andy Cohen will turn back the pop-culture clock to 1989, 1994 and 2000 for a three-part Bravo series “Then and Now,” which debuts Dec. 13.
The series will offer a trip down memory lane as Cohen, host of Bravo’s nightly yakker “Watch What Happens Live,” explores nostalgic moments and explores the legacy of events and developments from those three years.
With a list of guests that includes Kelly Ripa, Connie Chung, Drew Pinsky, Mariel Hemingway, Billy Eichner, Bethenny Frankel and Margaret Cho, Cohen will examine headlines and trends from those years. Topics will include the frenzy surrounding the O.J. Simpson murder case and the cultural obsession with NBC’s “Friends” to the step aerobics and Y2K craze.
The first episode, covering 1994, premieres Dec. 13, followed Dec. 16 with the 1989 installment. The final segment airs Dec. 23.
