BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) — Meghan McCain is getting her own show on a new TV network targeting the generation of Americans known as millennials.

Raising McCain” will debut on Pivot, a general entertainment network that launches Aug. 1. It’s described as a documentary-talk series for viewers ages 15 to 34. McCain will star and will be the executive producer.

The 28-year-old author and blogger told the Television Critics Association on Friday that the show lets her “be crazy, be (herself) and talk about issues.”

McCain says her 76-year-old father, Sen. John McCain, has already seen a highlight reel of her show. She says he’s a champion of the show and believes that younger people want more substance.
