As Wendy Williams continues her stint on Broadway starring in the Tony Award-winning revival “Chicago,” the outspoken media personality has also landed another show on network television.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, TVGN (formerly known as the TV Guide Network) has greenlit a forthcoming as-yet-untitled series chronicling Williams’ preparation for her role as Matron “Mama” Morton during her 7-week run in the Broadway musical.

In addition to the hour-long series, which will be produced via Wendy Williams Productions, the Jersey Shore native’s highly successful national syndicated talk show, “The Wendy Williams Show," was also renewed on Fox Television through 2017.
