Kyle Richards dream of having her scripted show come to life is taking one step closer to reality!
We have reported that Kyle’s untitled scripted show has officially been picked up for a pilot and it looks like now they are currently in the casting phase!
Kyle spoke with Bravo’s The Daily Dish on where they are with the project and what hurdles she is currently facing.
“You know what, that’s really hard [to find who will be playing me]. That’s not as hard as picking my mom. It’s going to have to be a child that’s mature for their age and can handle the role. It’s a lot harder than casting a regular script.”
Although the show will be loosely based on her childhood as a child actress with her two now famous sisters raised by a single mother, the show is being described as a “dark comedy.”
Despite the challenge, Kyle is excited to get her project off the ground and is finding it surreal that this project is actually coming to life:
“I’m really excited. It feels surreal because right now we’re starting the casting process. I’ve only ever been the one walking in to the casting office being auditioned, so now the fact that I am going to be on the other end of it is crazy. I actually feel so bad for the actors because I know what a painful process that can be. So I think ‘Oh my god, it’s going to be so hard for me to watch’ because I know how they’re feeling.”
“I mean it’s just starting now, but even the whole process of getting the project made and getting it this far has been a learning process for me, so it’s really exciting. I mean I’ve been in television the majority of my life starting at 3, 4 years old, so I’ve always been in front of the camera. But it’s amazing to know how little I knew about behind the camera, so it’s been a great education for me and very fun.”
On whether the brunette beauty will be making a cameo? Kyle hasn’t exactly ruled that out yet saying:
“I don’t know. I’ve thought about that, but the truth is right now I’m just going to be behind the camera but you never know.”
We recently got the opportunity to interview Kyle her at AllAboutTRH and she mentioned that despite her life being hectic she was so excited to bring this project to life. We can’t wait to check it out!
Will you be tuning in to watch? Any thoughts on who should play Kyle, Kim and Kathy or their mother??
