Nicole Richie is making her return to television…
The 32-year-old part-Mexican American reality-television-star-turned-fashion-designer, who served as a mentor for two seasons on NBC’s Fashion Star, is taking her popular web series to VH1.
The network has given a straight-to-series order for Richie’s #CandidlyNicole for eight episodes, premiering on July 17.
Additionally, VH1 has signed a first look/development deal with Richie’s Honey Child Prods.
The reality series #CandidlyNicole, produced by Telepictures and World of Wonder, is based on Richie’s popular AOL online series of the same name, which in turn was based on Richie’s irreverent Twitter feed.
“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 EVP Original Programming & Development. “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.”
#CandidlyNicole marks Richie’s first reality starring vehicle since Fox’s The Simple Life, the show that made her a household name.
According to VH1, it will “detail her daily adventures and give insight into her decisions on style, relationships, her work life and her journey to adulthood.”
