Studios USA Domestic TV has inked an overall multiyear talk and reality deal, the first of its kind for the syndie studio, with vet talk producer Mark Lipinski.
Company has also named Lipinski exec producer of a yakker, in development for fall 2001, to star QVC personality Kathy Levine.
The signing of Lipinski to head the Levine project indicates that the show has been marked for the studio’s fast track.
Since 1998, Lipinski has served as senior producer of ABC’s “The View,” where he was involved in program development and planning, as well as scouting and developing talk talent.
Lipinski’s credits include serving as senior producer for “Ricki Lake” and as a producer on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “The Joan Rivers Show” and “The Richard Bey Show.” He also exec produced Lifetime’s “Attitudes.”
