EW YORK –– (November 29, 2016) – The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards has teamed up with COZI TV for a memorable trip to America’s favorite country farm. She will host a 17-episode Little House on the Prairie marathon on the national multicast network that kicks off Saturday, December 10 at 7 AM ET (check local listings).
Richards began her career as a child actress, appearing as Alicia Sanderson Edwards on the Little House series. During the 17-hour marathon, Richards entertains viewers by comparing life on the prairie to her current one in Beverly Hills. “For parties on the prairie, you’d just boil your best dress, tuck your hair under a bonnet and pass around a bottle of sarsaparilla with a dirty rag to wipe the rim. Today, you need so much more – a theme, florist, catering truck, flowers, valet car attendants, gift bags and a charity auction – just to name a few,” jokes Richards.
“We cannot wait to deliver a double-dose of Kyle Richards to our loyal COZI TV fans,” said Meredith McGinn, Senior Vice President, COZI TV and LX.TV Productions. “Not only will Kyle take viewers on an extended journey back to the Minnesota prairie, but they will also be catapulted into modern-day Beverly Hills and treated to a behind-the-scenes look at mansion life – led by our favorite Housewife.”
Winner of four Emmy awards, Little House on the Prairie debuted on COZI TV this past September and airs weekdays from 10 AM to noon and at 5 PM. The popular western drama series, featuring Melissa Gilbert as Laura Ingalls and Michael Landon as her father, Charles Ingalls, tells the story of a family living on a farm in Walnut Grove, Minnesota during the 1870s and 1880s.
Adapted from Laura Ingalls Wilder’s biographical best-selling Little House books, the series introduces the central characters, Charles Ingalls and his wife, Caroline, along with their four daughters, Mary, Laura, Carrie and Grace. The series follows the family from Laura’s childhood through her adulthood and marriage to Almanzo Wilder, affectionately referred to as Manny by Laura, with whom she later starts a family of her own.
