Andy Cohen is the latest celebrity to launch a series on Quibi. On December 12, it was announced that the Bravo legend would get his own animated series on the short-form streaming platform. Andy, 51, wears many hats as he serves as the host and executive producer for Watch What Happens Live, and the EP for the Real Housewives franchise. He also previously produced Project Runway, Queer Eye, and dozens of other television programs.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Quibi has ordered six episodes of The Andy Cohen Diaries. The show will document “iconic and untold moments" from the Watch What Happens Live host’s life.
The series will be a followup to Andy’s two best-selling novels, The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year, and Superficial: More Adventures From the Andy Cohen Diaries, which chronicled three years of Andy’s life. Deadline reported that parts of the show will include “irreverent celebrity encounters, behind the scenes of his shows, nights out on the town, and the trials and tribulations of first-time fatherhood.”
"I'm so excited to start writing more adventures in my diaries, and animated, short installments represent the perfect format to bring these to life," said Andy.
Andy will executive produce the series with his company, Most Talkative Productions, alongside Corey Campodonico and Alex Bulkley of the animation studio ShadowMachine. Their studio is known for bringing Bojack Horseman to life.
The exciting announcement comes shortly after a few big announcements for the Missouri native. Andy recently renewed Watch What Happens Live through 2021. He is also slated to host New Year’s Eve Live in Times Square with Anderson Cooper for the third year in a row.
Additionally, Andy’s son Benjamin said his first word on December 10. “My son said 'Dada' today for the first time. He said it about me,” the Bravo host gushed. Andy also admitted that he almost didn’t hear it his son say it. “I closed the door to leave and he goes, ‘Dada.’ So, I didn’t hear it,” he explained.
Andy welcomed Benjamin via surrogate on February 4, 2019. “WOW! This is my son, Benjamin Allen Cohen,” Andy wrote when his baby was born. “He is 9 lbs. 2 ounces!! 20 inches!! Born at 6:35 pm, PT. He is named after my grandfather Ben Allen. I’m in love. And speechless. And eternally grateful to an incredible surrogate. And I’m a dad. Wow.”
