    At the 2013 Critic's Choice Awards, Jessica Chastain, Helen Hunt, Sally Field and Amy Adams tell Access they are all very excited for their Oscar nominations. So, how did they find out?

    The one-hour pop-culture-driven talker, which will get a six-week test run on select Fox-owned stations in major markets such as New York and Los Angeles, will feature celebrity guests, as well as fashion and beauty trends. In other words, it's the kind of show where fashionable daughters Kourtney Kardashian, Khloe Kardashian Odom and Kim Kardashian will no doubt feel right at home.

    "This is something I have wanted to do all my life so it's definitely a dream come true!" said Jenner, who will also serve as an executive producer on the show. "I can't wait for this new adventure to begin."

    "Whether offering real advice to her family or sharing personal moments with viewers, Kris is honest, compelling, entertaining, and unscripted - all excellent qualities for a daytime talk show host," added Stephen Brown, EVP of Development &Programming, Twentieth Television, which will produce and distribute the Jenner's show.

    "Kris" becomes the latest in a series of daytime talkers that have received Fox test runs in recent years. The strategy proved successful for "The Wendy Williams Show" and "Bethenny," which have both gone on to enjoy popular syndicated runs.
