'Bethenny' Poised For Summer Test Flight
This summer’s episodes are taping on the Ellen set at Warner Bros. studios in Burbank, Calif., which has been lightly redecorated in dark browns and light blues with two living room chairs facing the audience.
If the shows gets the post-test green light, it might be moved to New York.
The producers will work to improve the show during its year off, says McLoughlin. “We would continue to use Bethenny on Ellen to keep her in the conversation.”
Bethenny is not be alone in vying for space on station schedules in fall 2013.
Sony Pictures Television recently hired former Rosie O’Donnell showrunner Corin Nelson to executive produce Queen Latifah, which will start taping this summer. And Food Network chefs Bobby Flay and Giada DeLaurentiis have a Live with Kelly-type show that Flay's agent is pitching to potential syndication partners, according to multiple sources.
