Andy Cohen has renewed his multi-tiered deal with Bravo Media that keeps his late-night talk show on the channel through 2020, NBCUniversal announced on Thursday.
The three-year pact includes a renewed first-look development deal with his Most Talkative production company, and continues his role as executive producer and host of reunions and specials for the “Real Housewives” franchise.
Additionally, his live late-night talk show, “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen,” is extended for three more years, with Cohen serving as host and executive producer.
“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 Frances Berwick, Lifestyle Networks president of 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.”
“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,” said Cohen. “Thanks to Bravo for supplying the booze to throw three more years of great parties!”
