Bethenny Frankel Talk Show Goes Nationwide in September (Video)

The Wrap

Bravo star Bethenny Frankel's talk show is going national on Monday, Sept. 9.

Warner Bros.' Telepictures Productions announced on Friday that the syndicated talker is cleared to air in 98 percent of the country on Fox stations. It will shoot in front of a live audience in New York City.

Picked up last September after a successful test run last summer on six stations, Telepictures and Ellen DeGeneres' production company, A Very Good Production, will produce "bethenny."

"The Ellen DeGeneres Show's" Mary Connelly, Ed Glavin and Andy Lassner, who executive produced the show during its test run, will stay on as consulting executive producers. Frankel, DeGeneres, Terence Noonan and Meghan Schaefer Spielberg will serve as Executive Producers.

Frankel joins a tough field of daytime shows that have already seen Anderson Cooper, Jeff Probst and Ricki Lake's new entries fail. The new talk show will go up against shows that have found their audience this past season from Katie Couric and Steve Harvey. Queen Latifah's new talk show is also debuting in the fall.

On the horizon, "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" star Kris Jenner's talk show is getting a test run on Fox stations similar to Frankel's this summer.
