Nicole Richie Bringing Web Series '#CandidlyNicole' to VH1
Nicole Richie will bring her unfiltered sense of humor and unique ability to infiltrate any environment to a new VH1 reality series based on her entertaining tweets. #CandidlyNicole, produced by Telepictures and World of Wonder and based on the successful AOL online series of the same name, is set to premiere on VH1 on Thursday, July 17, 2014 with 8 half-hour episodes.
In an interview last year with The Associated Press, Richie said she was interested in eventually bringing the series to television but viewed an online start as ‘‘a nice way to experiment.’’
“Nicole’s sharp, acerbic sense of humor and broad audience appeal make #CandidlyNicole a perfect fit for the VH1 brand,” VH1’s EVP of original programming & development, Susan Levison, told Variety.
“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.”
Nicole last year year generated headlines for pursuing “tramp stamp” tattoo removal on the program and mused that she finds embarrassing moments hilarious.
“The show is based off my tweets. I try and find the humor in something pretty much every day… each episode starts with one of my tweets,” she told Extra.
