Joining Kelly Ripa as co-host of the now-titled Live with Kelly and Ryan, Ryan Seacrest has made a seamless transition into his position on the show. Kelly Ripa spent time hosting the show solo after Michael Strahan made his exit from the hit morning show on ABC. The network spent time looking for the perfect replacement without rushing their process. Their patience was rewarded when they found Ryan Seacrest and his on-screen chemistry with Kelly Ripa has kept the show a morning staple. The easy banter that they have with each other has inspired a new show called Work Wife, which highlights the close relationship that colleagues often form with each other after spending copious amounts of time together in a work environment. Both Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest (@ryanseacrest) are set to executive produce the series, with successful writer Michael Ian Black taking on both writing and executive producing as well.
Executive producing Work Wife will certainly not be a new role for Ryan; he currently executive products mega-hit television show Keeping Up with the Kardashians as well as a multitude of the series spin-offs, and many red carpet shows on the E! television network. In addition to executing producing, Ryan also hosts the long-running television show American Idol and his popular radio show On Air with Ryan.
When Ryan isn’t working in Los Angeles or New York City, he focuses his attention on his foundation, The Ryan Seacrest Foundation which brings creative outlets to children’s hospitals around the country. Called Seacrest Studios, these highly-equipped media centers allow sick children the opportunity to take a break from hospital life and immerse themselves in a creative outlet and pursue and develop their media skills. The Ryan Seacrest Foundation has brought in many celebrities as well to inspire the children, from Taylor Swift to Selena Gomez.
