Abc is gearing up to release a comedy series should the friendship between Kelly Ripa and her “Live!” co-host, Ryan Seacrest. Ryan is the ultimate yes man when it comes to TV. We watched him grow from American Idol to owning his own clothing line, working with Kelly, starting a television production company, a foundation.
The pilot of “Work Wife” will, of course, air on ABC and will have the director feel of “How I Met Your Mother” and “Will and Grace”. The comedy series will run for an hour and a half and is about work spouses who have limited boundaries with their significant other and the impact it has on their relationship with that individual and others.
Michael Ian Black, an American actor, is the writer and executive producer of the series. Ryan Seacrest’s production company (RSP) and ABC will produce the series and Ryan alongside Nina Wass and Andrea Shay will be executive producers as well. Kelly Ripa is listed as an executive produce alongside Mark Consuelos and Albert Bianchini.
As the world knows, Ryan Seacrest and Kelly Ripa are the hosts ABC’s morning show “Live with Kelly and Ryan.” Kelly Ripa started the show back in 2001 and Seacrest joined her in 2017. Ryan is also the host of ABC’s American Idol reboot show.
Ryan will continue to host his syndicated weekly radio show called “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” that started in 2008. The morning drive-time show airs in Los Angeles on 102.7 KIIS-FM live at 6 am to 10 am and at 9 am in Manhattan. The radio show had a morning television show by the same name with Ryan. The show aired in 2004, but only ran for a few months. On Air with Ryan is owned by iHeart media and heard by well over 130 stations in North America.
