Kelly News & Entertainment has formed a strategic alliance with Weller/Grossman Prods. to produce the third season of its weekly reality series “Save Our Streets” and to develop new projects for syndication and cable outlets.
“Save Our Streets” was produced inhouse by Linda Ellman of Ellman Prods., but Kelly decided to strike a deal with an outside company in order to reduce costs. The show also will move from an hour to a half-hour this fall as part of a total revamp.
Weller/Grossman, which was formed in 1993 by former “Entertainment Tonight” co-host Robb Weller, is a big supplier to cable channels, including A&E, the Discovery Channel and others. Aside from “Save Our Streets,” no new projects are yet in development.
