(Newser) – Meghan McCain is getting her own show on a new TV network targeting 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 serve as executive producer. The 28-year-old author and blogger told the Television Critics Association yesterday that the show lets her "be crazy, be myself, and talk about issues."

McCain says her 76-year-old father, John McCain, has already seen a highlight reel of her show and approves. "He did not love when I worked at MSNBC," she says. "He has really been a great champion of this show and believing that young people want more substance."
