The new deal gives the go ahead to three more seasons of “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen,” the late-night talk show that Cohen has hosted on Bravo since 2009. It also extends Bravo’s first-look development deal with Cohen’s production company Most Talkative.
“Andy is a creative multi-hyphenate dynamo, who through his cheeky charm, fascination and fandom, makes you want to hang out with him – either on the seat next to him or on the screen in front of you,” said president, lifestyle networks, NBCUniversal cable entertainment.. “He’s an integral part of the Bravo family and brand and we can’t wait to see where he takes ‘Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen’ next.”
Added Cohen, “This is the show I have dreamt about hosting all my life and it’s as fun today as when we started over eight years ago. Thanks to Bravo for supplying the booze to throw three more years of great parties!”
With the new agreement, Cohen — a former Bravo programming executive — will continue to serve as executive producer of the “Real Housewives” reality franchise and host various reunion shows and specials. Cohen also serves as executive producer of “Watch What Happens Live.”
