VH1 will bring actress/entrepreneur Nicole Richie’s online series #CandidlyNicole to cable in July, the network announced Monday.
VH1 has greenlit eight half-hour episodes of the series, which features Richie’s insights on her life and events through the world of social media. The show, which debuts July 17, is based on the successful AOL online series of the same name.
“Nicole’s sharp, acerbic sense of humor and broad audience appeal make #CandidlyNicole a perfect fit for the VH1 brand,” said Susan Levison, VH1’s executive vice president of Original Programming & Development in a statement. “Viewers will enjoy her unique point of view and earnest look at pop culture as well as her fearless exploration of anything and everything taboo.”
