Bethenny Frankel to Topline HBO Max Competition Series

Bethenny Frankel is returning to her reality TV roots with a competition series at HBO Max.

The Skinnygirl founder and former Real Housewives of New York City star will front an eight-episode series called The Big Shot With Bethenny, in which aspiring business moguls compete for a job on Frankel’s executive team. The Apprentice-like show hails from MGM TV, Mark Burnett and Frankel’s B Real Productions.

“I first met Bethenny when I put her on the first season of The Real Housewives of New York City, and she’s always both impressed and entertained me,” Jennifer O’Connell, executive vp original non-fiction and kids programming at HBO Max, said Wednesday in a statement. “It’s incredible to see her empire continue to grow, and I know that candidates will be clamoring to work for her.”
