E! is tapping into Hollywood royalty once again with its newly announced series, “The Drama Queen.”
Starring legendary actor/comedian Lou Costello’s granddaughter, Marki Costello, the reality series will debut on Sun. Nov. 10 at 10/9c.
It will follow Marki both at home with her family and running her company, Creative Management Group in Los Angeles. Over her career’s two decades, Marki’s clients have included Kelly Osbourne and Cee Lo Green. She specializes in building brands and coaching clients on how to surpass the proverbial 15 minutes of fame.
“With a Hollywood pedigree that dates back for generations, Marki Costello knows firsthand what it takes to make it in the cut throat entertainment business,” said E’s programming and development executive vice president, Jeff Olde in a statement.
“The road to fame starts with Marki and if talent can survive her unfiltered, hyper, honest point of view, they might just make it. But either way, it is fun to watch,” he continued.
At home, the series follows Marki’s domineering presence among her family, which includes her longtime boyfriend Tommy, their young son Finn and her teenage son from a previous relationship, Lucas.
“The Drama Queen” is executive produced by Jeff Collins, Mike Aho and Michael Hammond for Collins Avenue Productions, with Andrew Perry serving as executive producer.
Fans of Bravo’s “Interior Therapy” will recognize Marki from a recent episode this past season in which star Jeff Lewis gave her family home a makeover and tried to help Marki’s family create boundaries between them and her often imposing personality.
