Jose Pretlow has been named exec producer of the Paramount-produced NBC daytime talker “Leeza.”
He comes to the Leeza Gibbons-hosted talkshow after serving long stints as a producer on syndie yakkers fronted by Geraldo Rivera, Phil Donahue and Sally Jessy Raphael. Most recently he was the showrunner of the latenight syndie strip “Vibe.”
On “Leeza,” Pretlow replaces exec producer Donna Harrison, who has left the Par fold. “Leeza” is heading into its sixth season next month as part of the Peacock web’s daytime lineup.
