Move over Kardashians because Meghan McCain, daughter of Republican Senator John McCain, is getting her own reality TV show.
Raising McCain will debut on Pivot, a new general entertainment network that launched on August 1, 2013.
The new Meghan McCain vehicle is being touted as a “documentary-talk series” aimed at the 15- to 34-year-old market.
Meghan will both star in and produce the new show.
Speaking to the Television Critics Association on Friday, the 28-year-old author says the show will let her “be crazy, be myself, and talk about issues.”
Meghan McCain says of her new show:
“I came to Pivot because I think there has to be some sort of middle ground between the Kardashians and C-SPAN. I want to give people information but not talk down to them. I am so excited. This is the best thing I’ve ever done.”
When asked what her dad thought of the show, she explained:
“We have had conflicts many times. He did not love when I worked at MSNBC. He has really been a great champion of this show and believing that young people want more substance.”
The young Republican says she believes her generation should be given more information than it is getting with current news and entertainment.
I personally don’t see how a viable show can combine “The Kardashians” with “C-SPAN” and yet remain relevant.
Maybe her dad will appear on the show and really explain why he recently promised to ensure strippers get bigger tips.
Meghan did not explain how much, if at all, her dad will appear on her new reality TV show.
Will you be tuning in on Pivot to watch Raising McCain? Do you think Meghan McCain can actually make a smart reality TV show stick with the 15- to 34-year-old demographic?
