California-based prodco Pilgrim Studios is teaming up with Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Khloe Kardashian (pictured) on a prime-time talk show for FYI.

The A+E Networks-owned cable net has green-lit Kocktails with Khloe  (8 x 60 minutes), which is billed as a “hybrid talk series.”

The show will premiere later in the year and feature the youngest Kardashian sister hosting dinner parties in a Los Angeles studio with celebrity guests. Viewers can expect “cooking, pop culture, conversation and outrageously fun party games,” according to a release issued by the network. Production will begin immediately.

“I’m lucky that I’ve been able to invite fans into my life and home on a weekly basis and this show will give me an opportunity to continue to do that with new and exciting guests,” she said in a statement. “Being an executive producer allows me the opportunity to create original content and I can’t wait to show my fans what we have in store on Kocktails with Khloe.”

Kardashian will serve as executive producer on the program, alongside Pilgrim’s Craig Piligian and FYI’s Gena McCarthy, Toby Faulkner and Lauren Wohl.

She is the second member of the Kardashian/Jenner clan to land a series on a network other than E!, which airs Keeping Up With the Kardashians and the series’ roster of spin-offs such as the upcoming I Am Cait. In 2013, Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner hosted a short-lived talk show on Fox called Kris.

Last week, FYI set August air dates for the style-centric series Get Swank’d and Style Unzipped.
