Kyle Richards has been hard at work filming her new series, American Woman, this season of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Now the show, which is inspired by her own life growing up in the '70s, is quickly coming to a TV near you.
American Woman is slated to premiere in the first quarter of 2018, Paramount Network, formerly known as Spike TV, announced Thursday. The new 1970s-set half-hour series will follow single mom Bonnie (Alicia Silverstone) and the challenges she faces in raising her two daughters after leaving her husband. She'll have the help of her two best friends, Kathleen (Mena Suvari) and Diana (Jennifer Bartels), as they all try to find their place in the world during this fabulously revolutionary decade.
In addition to inspiring the series, Kyle serves as co-executive producer. American Horror Story favorite Cheyenne Jackson will also star in the show as Greg, a studio casting executive who is friends with Bonnie and romantically involved with Kathleen.
Kyle gushed about her first time going behind the camera during an interview with The Daily Dish podcast in February. "Now all of a sudden I’m behind the camera, and I really, really love it. I’m really particular, and I didn’t realize I was going to be so neurotic about every little thing," she said. "It was really important to me in doing American Woman that it was really authentic and that you really felt like you were in the ‘70s. I didn’t want to be flashing back to the ‘70s. I wanted you to really be in that moment."
