Nicole Richie will have a standing date with the peacock network on Fridays beginning in March…
NBC has scheduled the second season of its reality competition series Fashion Star, featuring the 31-year-old part-Mexican reality-TV-star as a celebrity mentor, for a March 8 premiere and a run in the network’s Friday 8:00 pm ET time period.
The premiere of Fashion Star will lead into the spring return of Grimm at 9:00 pm ET after the show’s two-month hiatus.
NBC had previously left the Friday 8:00 pm slot open in its recent midseason announcements despite speculation that Fashion Star would fill the hour.
Fashion Star‘s first season ran on Tuesday nights. The retail chains who’ve partnered with the show this season are returning giants Macy’s and Saks Fifth Avenue, as well as Express, who will be replacing H&M.
Along with Richie, Jessica Simpson and John Varvatos are returning as celebrity mentors, while fashion columnist and television personality Louise Roe will be replacing creator/executive producer Elle Macpherson as host.
